McKenzie confident of strong end to season

23-year-old believes double win is possible in closing rounds

British F2 racer Daniel McKenzie believes he's making improvements every time he races and that it's only a matter of time before he 'gets there and takes a double win'.

Currently lying seventh in the drivers' standings, the 23-year-old earned his second podium of the season at Paul Ricard together with a further points finish, and now hopes to carry this momentum through to the final two rounds of the season.

"All weekend we had very strong pace and I hope this will repeat in the future so I can get the wins I've been looking for," said McKenzie, who is racing in his first year of F2. "In general we had some outstanding race pace - really strong, consistently quicker than everyone else.

"Some of the other guys could match it, but only for a lap or two and then they dropped off while I was still putting in the hot times. It was a good weekend but the potential was for a lot better, as I made a few mistakes."

He added: "But I'm knocking on the door now - every time we go out there, bar Brands Hatch which was a bit of a strange one, we're getting better and better, and it's only a matter of time before we get there and take a double win."

With 80 championship points, McKenzie is currently 16.5 adrift of Kevin Mirocha with a maximum of 100 points available from the remaining four races at the Hungaroring (7-9 September) and Monza (28-30 September).
