Tom Brady Celebrates Consecutive Wins at E1 Venice GP

Team owner and seven-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady expressed immense pride and joy as his pilots, Sam Coleman from Saundersfoot and Emma Kimiläinen, secured the top podium spot.

Tom Brady praised his team’s performance, saying, “It was an amazing team effort, Sam and Emma were incredible. I’m just so proud of the team and everything they’re doing. We got off to a great start a few months ago in Jeddah, and we’ve just got to keep it going from here. This is something really special.”

Sam Coleman shared his excitement, highlighting the effort and emotions involved: “It’s been a weekend of blood, sweat and tears! The racing has been so competitive – it has been a real rollercoaster. My parents and wife made the trip out here to watch the race, I’m proud we could deliver for them and for Tom Brady too.”

Emma Kimiläinen, a standout pilot at the GP, expressed her delight and the significance of the win: “That was just mega. To win with Tom Brady watching on just felt incredible. There was so much happening during the race, but I’ve had the speed all weekend, so I just went out there and did my own thing. It’s Mother’s Day today and my daughter is my star. It’s really special to show her that you can work hard and chase your dreams and to compete with these incredible people is just awesome.”

Co-team principal Ben King conveyed the team’s satisfaction with their performance: “It’s an unbelievable feeling winning here in Venice. Of course, there were high expectations after securing the win in Jeddah, but we used that pressure to deliver.”
