Double R signs Swede Lundqvist for British F4
British F4 squad Double R Racing has signed Swede Linus Lundqvist as its first driver for the series this year.
The 17-year-old won the Formula STCC Nordic Championship last year in Formula Renault 1.6 machinery and impressed team boss Anthony Hieatt with his pace when testing at Silverstone at the end of last year.
“I have to say I’m genuinely impressed by what I’ve seen of Linus this winter,” said Hieatt. “Testing went incredibly well. He turned up for the first time at Silverstone, a tough track, and immediately set the pace.
“He comes highly recommended and I firmly believe that we’ll be running right at the front with Linus this year. I’d expect us to fight for race wins and the title, and we’re all excited to have Linus on board.”
Double R took four wins last year in the series with Australian Zane Goddard.
