Prema Powerteam is proud to announce their first driver for the 2015 FIA Formula 3 European Championship campaign. Behind the wheel of one of the Italian squad's Mercedes-powered Dallara cars will be British driver Jake Dennis. The 19-year-old racer will be at his second season in the series. His roll of honor includes the 2012 F.Renault NEC title and a fourth place in the 2013 F.Renault Eurocup. Dennis is a part of the Racing Steps Foundation, aimed to support the best British prospects in their racing endeavours.
For him, as well as for his future team-mates, the mission will be to keep the Prema banner at the top of the European F.3 panorama for the fifth straight year, after the titles captured with Roberto Merhi, Daniel Juncadella, Raffaele Marciello and Esteban Ocon.
René Rosin - Team Manager
"Dennis showed he is the right driver for us, the one that can help Prema to stay on top for the fifth straight year. Jake is aggressive, but also smart, and quick on every type of racetrack. We will do our 100% to put him in the position to accomplish the feature and I thank the Racing Steps Foundation for trusting us with Jake."
"I'm delighted to learn that I have retained the backing of the Racing Steps Foundation for a second year in the European Championship. It's where I want to be, for sure. I learned an awful lot in my rookie season and am extremely grateful to all those helped me along the way.
I now look forward to returning to the series with Prema which has a fantastic pedigree in F3. This year I finished third in the rookie standings and, but for a few mishaps along the way, would have finished higher. Hopefully next year, with a crack squad like Prema, I can show what I know I’m capable of and be in the hunt for the title from the word go."
