Sean Gelael made his way to the podium for the first time in July at the 2016 GP2 Series season in Spielberg, Austria. He could not hide his happiness while relaying the story. “I couldn’t thank my team more for making it happen. The hard work paid off.
The 19 year old began go-kart racing at the age of nine. He said he was influenced by his fatther, Ricardo Gelael. “He introduced me to car racing when I was little. Confidently, I would say racing is my passion and is my first option”.
To Sean, focus and good time management are two important things that can lead to success. “Nothing in this world can buy or turn back time. I might be the youngest in the GP2 series this year, but next year? No one knows. I need to stay focused to
pursue my dream.” He wants to make a difference and become a world campion one day, taking inspiration from the late Muhammad Ali, one of his heroes.
In a very humble way, Sean said that racing never makes him feel tired. “Every time I sit behind the steering wheel, everything stops and I only think about racing.”
