Caro­line ex­pects to stay in F4 in ’17

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Bri­tish For­mula 4 racer Jamie Caro­line is likely to re­main in the cat­e­gory next sea­son de­spite mak­ing his BRDC Bri­tish F3 de­but in the Au­tumn Tro­phy at Snet­ter­ton last week­end.

The 17-year-old took a best re­sult of third at Snet­ter­ton driv­ing for Dou­glas Mo­tor­sport but is set to re­main in F4 for the 2017 sea­son with ei­ther Car­lin or Dou­ble R Rac­ing.

Caro­line had a tough first sea­son of sin­gle-seaters, switch­ing from Ja­mun to Fortec part-way through, but claimed his maiden win in the fi­nal week­end at Brands Hatch.

“It’s a big learn­ing curve jump­ing into the F3 car,” he said. “It’s a much faster car to drive.

“I’m not look­ing at this cham­pi­onship in the short term, but it’s some­thing to think about for 2018.

“I’m go­ing to race in For­mula 4 again and it’s likely be­tween Car­lin and Dou­ble R. I’ve got a spon­sor to bring on board and it should all be fi­nalised in the new year.”
