The Team Principal said:

“First and foremost, I’ve asked him to surprise the world in terms of physical fitness, his approach and his performance.

“We’ve changed quite a bit with him across the winter period, his trainer is different, his training programmes are completely different. You should see he’s a much more confident person and he carries that well.

“What I’ve asked him to do is to approach the first few days of driving the car with caution again, the same way he did at the end of year, build up into it and don’t try and rush into success.”

Whilst there’s caution from Vowles in regards to Sargeant, the Team Principal appears more optimistic for the season ahead with Sargeant’s improvements.
