Prema confirms Sebastian Montoya
Prema Powerteam has announced the continuation of its partnership with Sebastian Montoya. The 15-year-old Colombian-American will keep driving for the team’s F4 operation for the bulk of the Italian Formula 4 Championship powered by Abarth and selected rounds of the German ADAC F4.
The son of Formula 1 race winner and double Indy 500 champion Juan Pablo Monotya, enjoyed a positive rookie season despite the logistic challenges experienced in early 2020. He eventually scored multiple top-5 finishes and honed his racecraft through experience, laying good foundations for 2021 which will be key for the development of his professional career. In the offseason, he went back to karting to keep himself trained and will soon be back in Italy to begin testing.
“We are very pleased to work with Sebastian again for 2021“, Team Principal Angelo Rosin said, “Last year, he didn’t have the easiest rookie season, but he showed great potential and we cannot wait to see him develop even further in the season ahead. We are making good progress with our preparations and we look forward to hitting the track soon with our full line-up.”
“I’m super happy to be with Prema once again in F4“, Montoya added. “Last year, the team helped me massively to learn and improve throughout the season, and I am excited to see what we can accomplish together after one year under my belt.”
