MP Motorsport confirms Zanfari
Moroccan driver Suleiman Zanfari will line up with MP Motorsport in the 2021 Spanish Formula 4 Championship. The 15-year-old youngster will team-up with the Dutch squad for his second season in the series.
Zanfari made his single-seater debut in Spanish F4 last year, claiming several top 10 finishes along with a best starting position of third on the grid. Now signing up with the team which has taken four of the last five Spanish F4 titles, Zanfari is hoping to join the winners in this hotly contested junior championship.
“To progress I need to be part of an experienced team capable of fielding several skilled drivers in very competitive cars”, said the Moroccan. “After a year of discovery, I need to be up against experienced team-mates to be able to move up in the rankings. I am delighted to have obtained a seat with MP Motorsport for 2021 and I have complete confidence in the team to support my early career in single-seater racing. The fact that this team has also mastered the higher categories, such as F3 and F2, is an asset not to be neglected.”
“I am happy to welcome Suleiman into our team”, said MP Motorsport’s team principal Sander Dorsman. “He showed excellent promise racing against us in 2020, and we aim to capitalise on that promise in 2021. I am convinced he will perform well in the seven-round championship, and we hope to announce Suleiman’s team-mates soon.”
In 2020, Zanfari switched to single-seaters after a successful karting career that was topped off by winning the 2019 Swedish OK Junior title as well as claiming podiums and top five finishes in both the 2019 FIA Karting World Championship and 2019 WSK Euro Series for OK Junior karts. Zanfari’s previous car racing experience includes a foray in the 2019 Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship in the UK.
