Check out the newest video from Mobil 1 The Grid in which British F4 driver Billy Monger tells the story of his road to recovery, his dream of racing in F1 and the inspirational role both Lewis Hamilton and Alex Zanardi have had on his journey back into racing.
Billy on Lewis: “He’s made a big impact on me. When I was 8 years old, watching Lewis win World Championships, I wanted to be like him… I wanted to be an F1 World Champion. When I went to the British Grand Prix with him, he was everything I’d hoped he’d be. He was really supportive, he gave me as much as time as he could… He just encouraged me to keep going with my dreams.
Billy on the future: “The dream’s always been the same… the ultimate goal’s to become an F1 World Champion. Whether that’s possible now or not, I won’t know unless I try, so I’m gonna give it my best shot. If I make a difference to one person’s life who’s in a similar position to me, for them to go out and try a sport that they loved doing before but don’t think they can do now… If I just make that difference to one person, then everything I’m doing here is worthwhile.”
