He doesn't seem very successful in this sport IMO

Carl Philip congratulated his team-mate, Volvo Polestar's Thed Björk, who secured the STCC-Championship in the first race. Björk was the champion also last year.

I think he should retire now, he's in his mid 30's, and about to get married.....if he has children in the future, he should not be doing such 'dangerous sports' which could either encourage any offspring to do the same, or which may affect his health badly, such that he wont be able to be there for them. Honestly now that he's approaching his 40's he should focus more on his royal duties and charities, and work more for Sweden.
plus he doent seem to be particularly good at, so he should use his energy to improve some thing he's already good at, or has potential for

Unfortunately he doesn't seem to improving any more and he is with a good team (the other drivers get consistently good results) so it's not just because of a lack of technique or team-support.

But obviously it's his hobby and something he likes to do, and he probably brings good publicity for the team, so I'm not sure that he will stop when he's married...

Prince Carl Philip Bernadotte had a tough weekend where he retired from the first race and finished 13th in the final race, but summarizes the season as positive nonetheless.
”I am not pleased with the weekend in terms of results. But I take the positive points from this season with me as we have taken important steps forward. I scored points in seven consecutive races and claimed a new personal best at Knutstorp. I look forward to 2015,” said Bernadotte.

I don't think so. One doesn't have to be alwys Nr. 1 at something to continue doing it. He likes racing and has a team who let him race even though he isn't the most successful. So it's working for those who are involved. Maybe the team just uses him for publicity. So what? CP uses the team for having fun at a big hobby. So it works both ways. If one only has to be good or extremely successful to be allowed to continue something there wouldn't be so many amateur / hobby sports teams.

Let him race as long as there won't be such misunderstandings like with this military exercise, where he raced while officially doing something official which is included in his royal calendar. That I don't like but if he wants to race in his free time and his team (and his future wife) let him do so, it's perfectly okay.

If he devoted himself full-time to racing and that is all that he did (nothing else), he probably would do better than he is. I'm assuming that he doesn't do racing full time.

When a driver marries, this changes some things but not a lot. When a driver has children, this changes their driving style to a certain degree I've seen changes in the driving of NASCAR drivers before and after they have had a family. They don't take as many risks and something that they might have done being aggressive to gain track possession they might not do so or do so more cautiously.

Margareta Thorgren, the director of the press department commented Carl Philip's season:
- It is a sport with high competition, a lot can happen during the races and this season has been the prince had some bad luck.
But Sofia was there to comfort the disappointed prince, she gave him a hug. And Sofia's entire family was there, mother Marie, sister Lina and father Erik
And not only that. King was also in place in Mantorp. He shared the prize for the winner and supported his son. The king embraced Sofia with a hug.
- The Queen was not present at the races, but follows of course with great interest the progress of the prince, says Margareta Thorgren.

The other drivers don't usually race or test between the races, there are agreements of how much the drivers can test during the season, so it isn't really different for Carl Philip.

Maybe now is the time to give up racing cars(never understood why people do some sports that they do because they seem dangerous to one's health, case in point, the deaths recently in the US) and then he could take a cue from his sister and get out there and work like she does...........He could show his love and support for the country that supports him and his lifestyle.

Victoria, Daniel and Estelle were watching Carl Philip's test and qualifying day at the Solvalla Race Track on Friday, 5th September.

Victoria and Daniel had chosen a different day than the rest of the family: Sofia, Sofia's family, Madeleine and Leonore were in Solvalla on Saturday 6th September. The king was there on both days. Victoria and Daniel also managed to keep a very low profile.

Carl Philip had today an official work event: A test day with the winners of the Prince Carl Philip Racing Cup in Gelleråsen. All the winners got a test day. And of course Carl Philip crashed out of a track like he does in STCC too, when he had 14-year old Carl Jansson with him at the car. Luckily they didn't get hurt.

Oh my... that's very fortunate that they are okay, but maybe good to be very hesitant in doing this again (especially with a passenger i mean, any racecardriver know there are dangers for his/her own health, but it's different when you have someone on board)

Am I right in reading that CPC had a 14 year old in the car while on the tracks and crashed............omg, this is a reckless decision and how could the parents let their children ride let alone race at that age? And what was CPC thinking? Motor racing is for adults with experience not for children and yes, at 14 your still a child..............maybe CPC needs a new hobby that is less dangerous now that he is getting married...............and maybe some people need to grow up...
