Fairuz Fauzy Aims Higher for 2011

Fairuz to seek full-time drive seat in Formula 1

11th December 2010, Silverstone, United Kingdom -- Fairuz Fauzy, Malaysia's sole representative in the FIA Formula 1 Championship, has decided to regain his racing form by partaking in full- -time racing for the 2011 season.

After being named as 3rd and Reserve Driver for the team formerly known as "Lotus Racing" back in 2009, Fairuz has thus far only undertook 5 test drive sessions throughout the entire 2010 season. Although Fairuz is highly- -appreciative of such an opportunity, it has meant sacrificing his top- -notch racing performance through lack of sufficient track time this year.

This does not bode well for Fairuz as he came into the season with steely focus and highly- - tuned strength, after clinching the Runner- -Up Title at the World Series by Renault Formula 3.5 Championship in 2009, beating the likes of fellow rookie F1 drivers and other Formula 1 aspirants. This does not bode well for Fairuz as he came into the season with steely focus and highly- - tuned strength, after clinching the Runner- -Up Title at the World Series by Renault Formula 3.5 Championship in 2009, beating the likes of fellow rookie F1 drivers and other Formula 1 aspirants.

In view of such developments as well, Fairuz has decided to contemplate other options and offers he has been receiving as of late from other Formula 1 teams, which also affords him the opportunity and flexibility to compete in other racing series at the same time.

Haji Fauzy, Fairuz's manager was quoted as saying, "Regretably, we received an official notification last week from Lotus Racing that Fairuz's contract has been prematuredly terminated without reason. We respect the decision, but as Fairuz's driver development programme began 25 years ago, we are determined and committed to pursue his career goal as a professional driver.

We are now looking at all avenues to fit him as a fulltime race driver in an international racing series of the same stature, but of course Formula 1 is our main priority".

2011 may have looked bleak at one point, but the determined gentleman that Fairuz is sees it as a challenge that he will overcome, like all other challenges life has thrown at him over the last 20 years in his quest to achieve his ambition to be a Formula 1 Driver.

Fairuz's willpower is now stronger than ever, and he looks forward to determinedly achieve his ultimate career goal sooner, rather than later, in Formula 1!
