Also we have to defend Team Championship title which in season 2019 was won by our Relaa Racing team. For the season 2020 events I'll be focusing on getting more competition experience and develope my driving skills. We're also planning for more tests in european circuits so that I can be ready when season 2021 gets underway, Nurmi tells.
