Fewtrell eyes move to For­mula Re­nault

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Newly crowned Bri­tish F4 cham­pion Max Fewtrell is eye­ing a step up to For­mula Re­nault 2.0 ma­chin­ery for next sea­son af­ter se­cur­ing the F4 ti­tle at Brands Hatch last week­end.

The Car­lin racer, 17, won the fi­nale and with ri­val Sen­nan Field­ing only man­ag­ing to climb to third, Fewtrell was able to take the ti­tle by seven points.

“I would like to do For­mula Re­nault next year, which would be ex­cit­ing,” said Fewtrell, who had pre­vi­ously con­tested the MRF Chal­lenge in Asia last win­ter. “It’s the best way to end the cham­pi­onship with a win al­though it hasn’t re­ally sunk in yet.

“I was un­der a lot of pres­sure and I could see Sen­nan was in third and I thought he could get re­ally close.”

Fewtrell’s only slight mis­take in the fi­nal race was a wob­ble at Stir­lings early on which he de­scribed as “prob­a­bly the scari­est mo­ment of the whole sea­son”.
