Favourite F1 circuit?

The Albert Park circuit in Melbourne as it’s the first race of the year and we all get to see the new designs of cars in the flesh. I have been to the Melbourne GP every year since 2016 and also was able to work there to promote Melbourne University Racing FSAE team’s race car in 2017. All these great memories make it my favourite Formula 1 circuit.


Favourite F1 Moment?

2018 China Grand Prix in Shanghai when Daniel Riccardo won at my home race


Biggest positive impact in your life?

My experience in FSAE with Melbourne University Racing Motorsports team has immensely enhanced my passion in working for Motorsports field. Apart from the technical role as a chassis team leader including the design and manufacture of chassis, I’ve also learnt extensively about leadership and teamwork during my time with the team.


What do you miss most about home?

My family, who have been a massive support to me since day one, especially my mum and my boyfriend Ambar. As well as of course my ridiculously cute bunnies.


How are you Engineered Differently?

There are two things I strongly believe in engineering. Firstly, that motivation is the driver for good performance as an engineer. Secondly, there is always a better solution, and hard work will always reveal it.
