Having been born in London to a German/Austrian father and a British mother, Josh relocated to Geneva in Switzerland in 2010 and, at 19 years of age, naturally speaks four languages. Light-hearted modesty masks a quietly determined young man, whose dedication to hard work, allied to pure passion and true talent, has shown that he has what it takes to go all the way.

"Austria has a rich motorsport history, not just from hosting races such as the annual F1 grand prix, but also through the number of drivers to have carried the iconic red-white-red triband flag. Everyone knows the legend of Niki Lauda, the last Austrian to win the F1 world title, and that of Jochen Rindt, who was the country's first world champion, but there is more. Gerhard Berger, Alex Wurz, Karl Wendlinger and Roland Ratzenberger have all made their mark on the top flight in recent years; both Wurz and Helmut Marko have tasted victory in the Le Mans 24 Hours; and many more are currently competing successfully around the world in other categories.

Switzerland may be where I am living now, but I am Austrian to the core, and want nothing less than to follow in the footsteps of those Austrian drivers who have gone before me. It's about time there was a successor to Niki Lauda as the last Austrian to win the F1 world title and, when the opportunity comes, I will be ready."

"My heart is telling me that F1 is where I belong," Josh says. "I love to race and have already proven that I can be the fastest guy out there. I still have a lot to learn, but something deep inside is telling me I can make it."
