Lawson is clearly very determined to return to the pinnacle of motorsport after being left ‘frustrated’ at not having a seat on the grid for 2024.

On this episode he tells host Tom Clarkson about how he felt when he received the call-up at Zandvoort, what he’s learned from the five Grands Prix he raced in and why he wants to inspire young racers in New Zealand. He also discusses his hopes for 2024 and much more.
