Dan Ticktum, the Red Bull Junior Team driver closest to breaking into Formula 1, is our guest on the latest edition of The Autosport Podcast.
Ticktum won last year's McLaren Autosport BRDC Award and the Macau Grand Prix, and heads into this season among the favourites for the Formula 3 European Championship title.
Ticktum joins Marcus Simmons, Kevin Turner and Edd Straw to discuss his successes of last year - and to explain why his main campaign in 2017 in Formula Renault Eurocup did not go as hoped.
He also talks about his 12-month ban from motorsport for deliberately colliding with Ricky Collard during an MSA Formula race in 2015, including those on social media who have reacted to his recent successes suggesting he should be out of racing for life.
