Caroline expects to stay in F4 in ’17
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.”
