Palmer eager to continue winning ways at Valencia GP2 weekend

Jolyon Palmer hopes to carry the momentum from his maiden victory in Monaco through to this weekend's (22-24 June) GP2 rounds at the Valencia street circuit.

Last month the 21-year-old stormed to his first win in the F1 feeder-series at the showpiece Monaco event - adding his name to a prestigious list of former GP2 winners at the track including Lewis Hamilton and Pastor Maldonado.

Racing alongside the Formula One World Championship, this weekend marks the halfway point in the series with rounds 11 and 12. Having seen the early part of his season blighted by a reoccurring mechanical problem, Jolyon is now hoping to put these issues behind him and enjoy a strong second half to the season, spurred on by his recent win.

"I'm looking forward to Valencia," said Jolyon. "It was one of my better results last year and I hope to keep the momentum going after Monaco. Unlike Monaco, it's a street circuit with plenty of overtaking opportunities and big run offs. As always, the most important thing for us will be a good qualifying and start as our race pace has been good everywhere so far. My target is another podium but at least a good haul of points to move up a few places in the championship."

Full coverage of Jolyon's weekend in Valencia, including live timing, will be available on his official website www.jolyonpalmer.com. All four GP2 sessions will also be screened live in the UK on the new Sky Sports F1 channel. You can also now follow Jolyon on Twitter @JolyonPalmer.
