Prema is delighted to welcome a great new addition to the team’s line-up for the 2018 Formula 4 season. After impressing in go-kart racing both in his native Australia and at international level, Jack Doohan will be making his single-seater debut this season, holding the Prema banner in five rounds between the Italian and German championships.
Son of five-time 500cc MotoGP World Champion Mick Doohan, the 15-year old from Gold Coast will also enter the British series and wants to lay good foundations to make a good international breakthrough in 2019. A Red Bull Junior Driver, Jack is set for a key step in his career and Prema will be absolutely dedicated to assisting him and developing his great skills.
Angelo Rosin - Team Principal
“It will be really interesting to work with Jack, who will make his first steps in single-seater racing this year. Coming from such a high-profile background in motor racing, I’m sure he will adapt himself really quickly to the new environment. The goal for him is to increase his mileage and experience so to prepare for a high-profile step up in 2019.”
“I’m really looking forward to being part of the Prema team as a Red Bull Junior Driver in some rounds of the ADAC and Italian F4 championships. To drive for a team as well-respected and successful as Prema in 2018 is something I could have only dreamt of at the start of 2017 when I arrived in Europe to compete in karts. My experience gained in karts from the age of eight has provided me with a solid foundation, but it’s now time to take my motorsport career to the next level.”
