MARKELOV JAPAN QUEST
Renault F1 test driver and Formula 2 star Artem Markelov is closing on a switch to Japan for 2019 to race in Super Formula. The Russian was set to take part in this week’s two-day test at Suzuka with Team Le Mans. Another SF newcomer to take part in the test is ex-f3 and latter-day LMP2 racer Harrison Newey. The son of Red Bull tech wizard Adrian Newey was due to drive at Suzuka with the new B-max/motopark collaboration.
