Frederick moves up to FIA Formula 3
Carlin has announced that 2020 BRDC British F3 Champion Kaylen Frederick will stay with the team as he moves up to the FIA Formula 3 Championship. The American will contest his third season with the British team as he makes the step up to the highly competitive championship.
18-year-old Frederick stays with the team that took him to the 2020 British F3 title, claiming a stunning 12 podiums including nine wins. Last season was Frederick’s second year in the British F3 Championship. A strong rookie season in 2019 delivered four podiums and two wins in his first year on British tracks. Prior to moving to the UK, Frederick competed in the USF2000 Championship in 2018 and 2017 following a season in F1600 Series in 2016.
“I’m extremely excited for the season and can’t wait to get on track“, Frederick said. “FIA F3 is a championship that all young drivers want to be part of. You know you are up against the best drivers on the road to F1. There will be many challenges ahead as a team, I feel we have what it takes to tackle those challenges. I’m very grateful to my sponsors for their continued support and for making this possible.”
“We’re delighted that Kaylen will stay with us for the 2021 season”, Trevor Carlin commented. “He is a complete pleasure to have in the team, both in and out of the car. The FIA F3 Championship is one of the most competitive championships in the world, but I know with Kaylen’s work ethic he will give it absolutely everything to get the most out of the package we provide him with.”
Frederick completes Carlin’s FIA F3 line-up joining already announced Jonny Edgar and Ido Cohen.
