Charles Milesi - Communiqué n°9

A Junior Karting driver last year, noting his incredible 34th-9th run in the Bahrain World Championship Final, Charles Milesi has shown great potential in his first season in single-seaters. With four victories and seven podium finishes in the French F4 Championship, as well as a victory and three podiums in FR 2.0 (NEC), the young Burgundian driver has risen to his new challenge. 2017 has allowed him to identify the points to work on in 2018, a year which he addresses with strong ambitions.



A successful move from karting to single-seaters requires a lot of effort. In this respect, Charles has taken every test seriously. Coached by Simumotion's Julien Abelli, he has undertaken physical and simulator training sessions. A virus contracted in mid-season could have thwarted his progress, but with determination he was able to cope. Few drivers can boast of equally flattering results in two categories for a first year in motorsport. Anthony Beltoise, who follows him closely and advises him, was able to appreciate the progress of his protegee with a keen eye: "Charles deserves to be congratulated for his debut in motorsport. He is an intelligent boy who takes every opportunity to progress. I am convinced that he will go far!"

Very fast, Charles has achieved spectacular coups against opponents much more experienced than him. He is now focusing on improving his consistency and his ability to adapt to different conditions in order to reap the benefits of its high potential more regularly. The manager of the R-ace GP team, Thibaut de Mérindol is delighted with his progress: "Charles did very well for his first season in single-seaters. We were very satisfied with his debut in FR 2.0 and we think that 2018 will bring good results for him in Eurocup. It is true that Charles' lucidity, perfectionism and courage of make him one of the young French talents to watch closely next year."

"I've had the pleasure of reaching many podiums in 2017," said Charles. "And I took four victories. I can be satisfied with my first single-seater season, although I think I could have done even better. In any case, I quickly found my bearings during an enriching double programme. I will approach 2018 with a good knowledge of my strengths, as well as the gaps I have to fill. The offseason will allow me to work in this direction without moving away from the circuits. My goal is to be one of the top rookies in Eurocup FR 2.0."

An intensive programme of physical and mental preparation will be at the heart of his winter schedule. Charles will also participate in the Castrol Toyota Racing Series with the MTEC team, a championship over five events in New Zealand in January and February 2018, before starting well-armed in the ten events of the Eurocup FR 2.0 with Team R-ace GP.
