With Formula UK Renault runner up, Dan Wells making an impressive start to his 2012 campaign in the Formula Pilota China series, we spoke with Dan’s KCMG race engineer Andrew Winsall after the opening round at the Shanghai International Circuit where they achieved a podium finish on debut!

Andrew’s varied and extensive career in motorsport started in Australia in the 1990s and quickly moved to Europe, where he engineered and coached drivers who took on the likes of Felipe Massa and Kimi Raikonnen during their formative years. Since then he has set up his own engineering business ‘Winsall Race” (twitter @winsall_race) which covers everything from karting, drag-racing, open-wheelers and everything in-between!

Andrew discusses the unique challenges that he and Dan are looking forward to meeting in the competitive Asian series, plus how his experiences in varied categories have assisted in giving him a competitive edge as an engineer.

WE hope you enjoy our talk with Andrew Winsall.
