 “Last year, I’ve been driving for US Racing for the last three rounds of the Italian Formula 4 Championship. I am very happy that we will continue to work together in this year’s Formula 4 season. I feel very comfortable with the Team and want to develop myself as a professional race driver. During the winter break, I worked a lot to prepare for the season and the new Formula 4 car. I am now very excited for the pre-season tests and the season opener in Imola”, explains the 16 -year-old.


Gerhard Ungar: “I am very happy that Pedro will be part of US Racing again for the Formula 4 season this year. Last year he did a very good job in his Rookie season, I am sure he will implement what he learned in his first season and we will see some good races from him.”
