Formula 4 is the first step in the world of “formula”, single-seater with uncovered wheels, a real school to train young karting talents who aspire to achieve professionalism and Formula 1. In the F4 championships they took their first steps drivers who today participate in the Formula 1 Championship such as the Canadian Lance Stroll, and many other young people such as Mick Schumacher, Ralf Aron, Marco Siebert, Dennis Hauger, Marcus Armstrong and other drivers today protagonists in the higher categories. Formula 4 proves to be the category preferred by the children and grandchildren of past champions. In recent years it was Mick Schumacher himself, his cousin David (Ralf’s son), Enzo Fittipaldi (Emerson’s grandson), Colombian Sebastian Montoya, son of Formula 1 driver Juan Pablo, is making his debut this year.
Abarth has been the exclusive supplier of engines that have driven Formula 4 cars since 2014, in keeping with the tradition that dates back to the time of Carlo Abarth to make racing accessible.
The excellent performance of the 160 HP T-Jet engine and the extremely low weight of the single-seaters allow a very interesting power-to-weight ratio that allows the young drivers of these competitive single-seaters to gain experience and demonstrate their talent to access the upper categories.
