The two fourth places and the fastest lap of William Alatalo show once again what potential there is in him. Joshua Dürksen showed a really strong performance in the first race, unfortunately with bad luck in races 2 and 3. We are very proud of Erwin Zanotti. It has to be kept in mind that the boy without a karting experience has climbed into the Formula 4 car and is now between places ten and 19 has established. Twice P (*********************************************************) best seasonal performance – its learning curve has convinced us all. We can also be satisfied with the season itself. Third place in the team and rookie ratings, you can not complain. Joshua and Erwin have developed brilliantly over the season and also William could show his skill. Unfortunately, qualifying often crashes our weak spot. If we, as a team and our riders, can go one better, then we can regularly compete in the top five. ”
