Brendon Hartley's Formula One career has bounced back, having recently signed with Ferrari.
The Kiwi, dumped by Toro Ross after his first full season as an F1 driver, will be a development driver for 2019 working in the Ferrari simulator.
Ferrari has announced is increasing its budget this year, as the Italian team looks to finally overtake major rivals Mercedes after a decade without a title.
Hartley joins Pascal Wehrlein, Antonio Fuoco and Davide Rigon as simulator operators. Hartley is also signed to Porsche as a factory driver and Formula E prospect, but had a clause allowing him to remain in a F1 role.
He joined Mike Hosking to talk about the turn in his fortunes and what he hopes to get out of the new role.
