Prema Powerteam is proud to announce the completion of its roster for the upcoming Formula Regional European Championship with 17-year-old Danish racer Frederik Vesti. Lining-up for the opening season of the brand-new championship, which will bridge the gap between Formula 4 and the new FIA Formula 3 Championship, Vesti is a valuable addition to the team in its effort to get up to speed quickly in a brand-new technical and competitive environment.
In his first few seasons in single seaters, Vesti achieved a fair share of success after scoring many impressive results in karting. After making his Formula Ford debut in 2016, he was a runner-up in the Danish Formula 4 Championship the following year while also securing a breakthrough win in the German series.
Last season, he took two wins en-route to fourth place in the German Formula 4 Championship. He also scored two wins in the 2018 Italian Formula 4 championship and later stepped up to F3 racing by entering the final round of the European season and the world-famous Macau Grand Prix.
“Frederik is a very interesting prospect.
We kept an eye on him over the last couple of seasons and he always impressed us for his speed and consistency. It is an exciting time for our team, starting a brand-new championship with three talented youngsters. With our hard-working approach and such a promising combination, we are confidently looking forward to the 2019 season as we are facing the new challenge, determined to continue our positive run of form in junior single-seaters.”
"I am thrilled to join Prema Powerteam and I really think that this move can boost my career. I am confident that the team will be able to challenge me in a way that can take me to a new level. In addition, I always thought of Prema as a team with a rare spirit. It only took me a few days to feel that "spirit" myself. It is all down to a very special bonding between the management and drivers because of the management putting an admirable effort into each driver. I am also excited to drive in the new Formula Regional European Championship which I believe is the right step at this stage for me. I want to thank my sponsors, who have given me the opportunity to start a new chapter in my career. I can not wait to push my new car to the absolute limit. It is lots of fun and so challenging to drive!”
