Oliver Bearman feels ready for Formula 1 after a solid practice session at the Mexican Grand Prix. Driving in Kevin Magnussen’s Haas, the Formula 2 driver finished with a time close to experienced team-mate Nico Hulkenberg.

The 18-year-old, currently sixth in his first F2 season, is pretty confident about his F1 prospects. “I believe that I have what it takes,” Bearman said. But he also knows success in F1 is not just about skill; there are other off-track factors too. His immediate plan is to stay focused, perform well in the next F2 season, and see where it takes him.

In this practice, teams had to use rookie drivers, and Bearman did exceptionally well among them. He completed 31 laps, more than other F2 drivers, and met his goals for a successful first session.

Bearman impressed not only with his driving but also with his professional approach and communication. Haas engineer Ayao Komatsu praised him for his smooth handling of all aspects of the preparation and practice, leaving a good impression on the team.

Bearman’s next appearance will be in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix practice, with hopes from the team for more participation in the following year.
