Fewtrell switches to Hitech
Renault Sport Academy driver Max Fewtrell joins Hitech GP in the 2020 FIA Formula 3 Championship. The 20-year-old British driver will fill a seat in a three-car line up.
Fresh off the back of an impressive season in the 2019 FIA Formula 3 Championship, in which he finished 10th in the drivers’ standings, Fewtrell returns to the grid this time with Silverstone-based team, runners up of last seasons’ FIA F3 campaign.
Fewtrell enters a fourth successive season with the Renault Sport Academy in 2020, which he joined through virtue of winning the British F4 Championship in 2016. The Briton claimed his second championship victory in 2018 after sealing the Formula Renault Eurocup at the final round in Barcelona. That added to his impressive rookie outing in 2017, when he picked up the rookie title after finishing 6th overall.
I’m ready for this next challenge in the FIA Formula 3 Championship with Hitech and I’m grateful for this opportunity“, Fewtrell said,”I learnt a lot of things in Formula 3 last year and I’ll be aiming to put that all into practice with some excellent results in 2020. It’s really good to be with a British team again. Last time I drove for a British team I won a title, so we’ll be looking to make it click this year and do the same. It’s also a positive to be part of the Renault Sport Academy for a fourth season and I’m looking forward to using their support and experience through the year. It’s not long until it all begins and I’m ready to get back behind the wheel.”
“We are really pleased to announce Max as our first signing for the 2020 FIA Formula 3 Championship“, Hitech GP Team Principal Oliver Oakes,“I have followed his career for a few years now and he is an exciting talent. It’s great to have him join us in our F3 line-up this year and we are looking forward to taking him under our wing and fighting at the front. We are looking forward to continuing our relationship and the trust placed in Hitech by the Renault Driver Academy to work with their talented youngsters.”
