Enzo Fittipaldi will be back under the Prema banner for the second straight season in 2018. The 16-year-old Brazilian will take full advantage of his 2017 experience in the Italian Formula 4 Championship and will approach his second year in the category with a more complex program including the Italian and the German championship.
It won’t be his first time in the ADAC-promoted series for Fittipaldi as he already made an extremely positive debut last year at Nurburgring with a podium finish overall. In the ACI series, his main 2017 commitment, he grabbed several points finishes overall and put up a brilliant performance in the rookie competition, with two wins achieved en-route to a second place in points.
For him, 2018 will feature a challenging program aimed at making another positive step while remaining under the guidance of the Ferrari Driver Academy.
Grazia Troncon - Team Manager
“We are proud to welcome Enzo back for another year together. He was brilliant in how he faced his first steps in full-time open-wheel racing, and his results were really positive too. It will be absolutely interesting to see him line-up for such a busy season and we are sure that, continuing the same progression of 2017, he will become a top contender, highlighting the work done with the team and the Ferrari Driver Academy.”
"I am very excited for the new season and I am really happy to be working again with a top team like Prema. Last year was a positive one and I am really confident that this year will be one to remember! Really looking forward to the start of the season!"
