My story
All my life I loved cars, driving them, pushing them to the limit and beyond. Even though I don’t have a driving license cause of my young age. When I was ten years old, I got my first Go-Kart. From that on, my dream was to be a Formula 1 driver. 7 years later I want to reach my dream even more!

My karting career was great, starting out with small Swedish races under the first 5 years then to 2007 we managed to do everything. I did participated in the toughest championships in the world. Such as World Cup, European Championship, Italian Masters etc. Under that year I got several wins and podiums. The two big things during 2007 was that I became Swedish Champion and 4th in the North European Championship.

In the end of 2007 I started to do some Formula Renault 2.0 testing. I was quick from the beginning, outing up really strong lap times the first time I was out in the car. I tested for Manor Competition and Fortec Motorsport, both the teams had drivers Like Kimi, Hamilton, Kovalainen. Everyone today’s top F1 drivers.

They wanted me to do the British Championship, but I wanted to drive in Europe, on the Formula 1 tracks. So my choice feld on a small Danish Team named KEO Racingto do the North European Championship. Its not big, not famous and not the best team. But we tried and made a very good impression with a lot of top 10 finishes. And we could see that the speed was really there. It gave me a lot of interest from the biggest teams in the World, they wanted me to test for GP2 and everything in between after the season. But I felt more comfortable to drive in the same car one year more, to challenge for wins and to race in a bigger team. That gave me the chance to shine.
