Vesti to make FIA F3 debut
After two seasons spent in the ADAC Formula 4 championship, Frederik Vesti is going to make his FIA Formula 3 European Championship debut in the last event at the Hockenheimring. The 16-year-old Dane will race for team Van Amersfoort Racing.
“Racing in FIA Formula 3 after only a few days of testing represents a big step but I see it as a learning process and as a great preparation for 2019 – a season I hope to contest in F3. I’m more than ready for it! I just can’t wait for getting into the cockpit of the car for the first time I really enjoyed working with Van Amersfoort Racing in ADAC Formula 4 over the course of the past two seasons. Racing with that team was a dream come true for me and I have learned a lot while developing both as driver and person”, Vesti said.
“In the last two years, we actively supported Frederik regarding the development of his career and it has been great to watch him mature, both in and out of the car. This year, particularly in the second half of the season, he has shown great progress and we can see that he is ready for making the next step”, Team Principal Frits van Amersfoort commented.
