Monger to stay with JHR for sec­ond cam­paign in Bri­tish For­mula 4

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Bri­tish F4 racer Billy Monger will re­main with JHR De­vel­op­ments in the se­ries next year.

The 17-year-old fin­ished 12th in the stand­ings in his maiden sea­son in sin­gle-seaters this year, tak­ing three podi­ums and nar­rowly missed out on his maiden win at Rockingham with tech­ni­cal trou­ble on the last lap.

It will be Monger’s third year with JHR af­ter fin­ish­ing fifth in Ginetta Ju­niors in 2015 with the team.

“For me, it was a no-brainer to stay with JHR,” he said. “They’re a great bunch of guys and I feel very much at home in­side the team, and that kind of en­vi­ron­ment re­ally in­spires con­fi­dence.

“The tar­get for 2017 has to be race wins, and if we can achieve that on a con­sis­tent ba­sis, then there’s no rea­son why we can’t chal­lenge for the cham­pi­onship.”

Monger took three F4 podi­ums in ’16
