Feature driver series: Doull


Atomic F1 sits down with Doull, GP2 veteran and this months feature driver.
Q: What's the most memorable win for you in online racing, and why?
My first victory or podium in the Atomic GP2 championship is yet to come. I seem to qualify better. However, I am unable to turn the qualifying efforts into a win yet. I think the most memorable one came from V8 supercars at Adelaide. I took the lead on the back straight and held the lead until the end. It was very close racing.
Q: Describe your driving and racing style:
I would describe myself as being cautious. I would also describe myself as being a bit of a tap. Hot or cold is how my fellow competitors would describe me. PessimistPrime described me the other day as being the unluckiest driver in GP2
Q: What's your all-time favourite turn (or sequence) of the current tracks:
Spoon corner at Suzuka would have to be my favourite. Off camber and nasty if, you get it wrong. It is really rewarding when you nail it.
Q: As above, but which do you hate the most, and why:
Hungary would be my least favourite track on the calendar. There are no fun corners on it and it has all the charm and grace, of a Doberman after a head swap operation.
Q: You must choose a city for a new Formula One street circuit - which city, anywhere in the world, do you choose, and why?
Street circuits have the same sex appeal as a road accident. Therefore, the city I will pick, will be an utter shit hole. Mogadishu. I do not like street circuits: P The guy who did Singapore, should be given a lava enema.
Q: If you could choose one former world champion as your team mate, who would you choose and why?
It would have to be Mika Hakinnen. He was a no fuss driver who would just get on with the job at hand. He would certainly make the GP2 Constructor interesting for Sauber. Mika is just a good all round bloke, who is very funny.
Q: Formula One innovations of the past - ground effect, active suspension, turbocharging, six wheels, the list goes on. If you could bring back one past innovation, what would it be and why?
It would be active suspension for me, as the cars are so good that I would like to see the drivers having to wear g-suits in the high-speed bends.
Q: What current Formula One regulation would you most like to change and why?
The rule where it says that the crankshaft and the cylinder heads need to be made of cast iron. My thought is let the engineers go crazy with the development in engines. To me this is what Formula One is all about.
Q: If you could pick two Formula One greats of the past (from different eras) to watch race against each other, who would you pick?
I would really love to see Aryton Senna and Sebastian Vettel race together in the same car.
Q: Just 19 of the worlds motor racing circuits feature on the current Atomic F1 calendar. You can add one more. Which circuit do you pick and why?
It would have to be Road America. The circuit is the Spa of Europe and the Bathurst of Australia. It is a good fast circuit with some awesome elevation changes to boot. It has a good mixture a fast and slow bends.
Q: You are having a dinner party and can invite four people from the world of motorsport, past or present. Who do you invite?
Ben Collins, Mark Webber, James Hunt and Colin McCrae.
