Josh Steed had two weeks to not only recover from his practice incident at Snetterton, but to also get his car repaired and ready in time for the recent rounds at Silverstone. Thankfully, he did both and Olivia Humphrey was there to catch up with him.

Last race at Snetterton you suffered a bit of an incident. How do you come back
from something like that whilst still having confidence?
I have had worse accidents than that in karting where I have been in hospital for
days but after testing back in my car at Silverstone I have gained so much more
confidence back. Now I am ready to race.


How was race one?
It was great. We are down on power at the moment due to the incident at
Snetterton when I rolled the car. I used my race craft from karting and I got from
11th to 7th, battling as much as I could and I really enjoyed it.


Do you think you can improve in race two?
I think so if I get a good start and get away. Anything can happen in a race so you
never know what is going to happen but I will just see what I can do.


Did you have a good summer break and are you raring to go?
I have been waiting so long to get back in the car after accident and it is all I have
been thinking about really.


You are one of the drivers in the grid who produces a lot of social media content.
How important is that for your racing career?
If you show people what your personality is like and not just how well you are
doing in racing, that can attract sponsorship. That is how I got my sponsorship as
they have seen that I am not a stuck up kid and I am just myself and I have a
laugh but I also keep my head down when I am racing, so it shows who you really
are.
