A big achievement came in 2011, when the Spaniard won the Formula Renault 2.0 Northern European Cup. 2012 was the year of F3 as he raced in both the British and European championships. The following year, he raced successfully in GP3. In 2014, he secured his most important result to date by winning the Formula Renault 3.5 World Series title in true style. Then he joined our team in 2015 and now he is behind the wheel of an STR12, for his third season in Formula 1.
