  • Arjun’s father called this his best performance until now and he said, ” considering the amount of pressure he was under in with Boccolacci having DRS, that gives you 15-20 km/hr more speed, he drove superbly to defend. It shows he can take the pressure.”
  • After the victory, Arjun was very excited for the obvious reason and he said, “The moment has still not sunk in yet. I am still pumping and full of adrenaline.”
  • Arjun felt supremely proud, joyful and delighted to have national anthem played in front of so many people across the world. In an interview with a news channel, he explained the whole feeling by saying, “started under pressure as it was essential for me to get to the front from the beginning. My desired lead came from the first corner, followed by a nerve-racking first five laps with Boccolacci on my tail and his attempts to overtake me multiple times while we were in the DRS Zone. Once I broke away from the DRS zone I was able to focus on my pace and started to build the gap. It was the most amazing feeling as I crossed the finish line and it started to sink in that I had my first race win in GP3.”


Winning is never easy, but with constant hard work and dedication, you can achieve anything in life. Arjun Maini being the best example of the aforementioned statement has not only inspired the youth but everyone who had lost hope in their dreams. So, go ahead and work on what you love and write your destiny.
