Great Britain's Adam Carroll goes into the start of a hectic month of racing with three rounds in the next four weeks, kicking off this weekend in France. After a month long break in the GP2 championship whilst Formula One crossed the Atlantic, the Racing Engineering driver is desperate to get back behind the wheel and build on a positive weekend at Silverstone. Pole position, a 2nd and a 3rd place saw Carroll claim 13 points from his home round.
Since then all the GP2 teams tested at Paul Ricard in the south of France. Racing Engineering and Carroll made the best use of the time working on set-up as opposed to speed. Now, he feels he can get back to his winning ways of last season.
"This weekend will be the test to see if the work we did at Paul Ricard will help me get to the top step of the podium again. We had a good run at Silverstone before the break and I'm really looking forward to the second half of the season.
"Magny Cours is a circuit which I like and I've done well in the past here. In fact this is where I had my first car race. It is a real mix of fast and slow sections and all in all it's a good circuit to drive."
