Hailing from Scotland, Lucas's racing pedigree was honed in karting before stepping into the world of Esports. Selected in the 2019 F1 Esports Pro Draft, Lucas entered the final four races of the campaign for Team Silverstone and impressed from the outset, making the podium in just his second start with a second-place finish at Suzuka. He played a key part in Racing Point's successful Pro Exhibition Series, alongside main campaigns in the F1 Esports Pro Championship and the V10 R-League. Lucas continues into the Aston Martin Cognizant Esports Team era, and starred in our charge to the V10 R-League finals.

A successful karter and a real-world racer, Shanaka turned his focus to Esports in 2019 and was unlucky not to be selected by a Formula One team during the F1 Esports Pro Draft the same year. Team Silverstone selected the highly sought-after Shanaka for 2020. He supported Lucas and Daniele in the F1 Esports Pro Championship, making his racing debut along the way. He also played an important role in our charge to the 2021 V10 R-League final. Building on his first year of experience, Shanaka continues into the Aston Martin Cognizant Esports Team era.
An experienced figure in the sim racing world, Italian driver Daniele joined Team Silverstone in 2019 for the F1 Esports Pro Championship, taking his best result of sixth at the season finale around the Interlagos circuit. He remained with the team into 2020 and raced in both the F1 Esports Pro Championship and V10 R-League. After playing an important role in our 2021 V10 R-League season, Daniele continues with the Aston Martin Cognizant Esports Team into the F1 Esports Pro Championship.
