Bri­tish F4 grid drops after Monger side­lined

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Bri­tish F4 had its small­est grid since switch­ing to its cur­rent for­mat at Croft last week­end, after Billy Monger was forced out with bud­get is­sues. Just 16 driv­ers took part in the North York­shire races – the fewest since the for­mula was re­vamped at the start of last year with the in­tro­duc­tion of the FIA F4 My­gale car. The Ja­mun team pulled out after Oul­ton Park and sev­eral other rac­ers have been left on the side­lines due to bud­get.

JHR De­vel­op­ments driver Monger has taken two podi­ums this year and is work­ing on find­ing the bud­get to re­turn.

Team boss Steve Hunter said: “We hope Billy can try and get some­thing to­gether for Snet­ter­ton. He’s a great char­ac­ter and was sorely missed.”

Hunter added that with more teams set to en­ter later in the year, the se­ries is still in good health.

“I think it’s just a tem­po­rary blip,” he said. “Ev­ery se­ries has its ups and downs.”
