Work never stops for the PREMA Theodore Racing Formula 4 operation. After leaving Hockenheim, where they faced a challenging round of the German ADAC series, the team is already preparing for round 2 of the Italian series which will be exceptionally run in France at Circuit Paul Ricard, one of the most historical venues of the country and now finally back to the Formula 1 schedule with the French Grand Prix set for June 24th.

The team will be headlined by Enzo Fittipaldi. The young Brazilian scored two wins and a podium finish at Adria which put him on top of the driver standings. Third place in the overall points chart belongs to fellow countryman Gianluca Petecof, who will be only at his fourth open-wheel race but already impressed so far and brought home a triple rookie win back at Adria.

British racer Olli Caldwell will line-up in France to reverse the fortunes of a difficult opener of the Italian Series, and show that he can definitely be a contender. Jack Doohan, who was impressive in his first race outing under the Prema banner at Hockenheim, will remain with the team for the second weekend in a row to keep the momentum high and increase his experience.

Angelo Rosin - Team Principal
“This is going to be a particular weekend, with the Italian Formula 4 Championship crossing the national borders to line-up in Le Castellet. Circuit Paul Ricard is not an easy track to tame but, for young drivers, it’s really positive to race at Formula 1 venues. We feel prepared for the second round of the series and we are definitely looking forward to seeing all four drivers battle at the very front end of the charts.”
