Week in, week out, PREMA Theodore Racing knows no standing still. Just days after taking the first win of the 2018 season in the German Formula 4 Championship, the Prema train will be back on-track in its full capacity to contest the opening round of the Italian Formula 4 Championship this weekend.
There will be four cars lining-up at Adria, not too far from the team’s headquarters in Vicenza, to continue in the footsteps of the last few seasons and fight for a back-to-back title. The roster for the Italian tripleheader will consist of the same three drivers seen at Oschersleben, plus the welcome addition of Amna Al Qubaisi. The 18-year-old racer is the daughter of Khaled Al Qubaisi, made history for becoming the first Emirati to compete at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Amna is also the first Emirati female racer and has been preparing for her debut with a complete testing program.
She will be joined by regulars Olli Caldwell, Enzo Fittipaldi and Gianluca Petecof. The quick Brit, who took victory in Germany, will try to do it all again in Veneto while, returning for his second season in the series, Fittipaldi is eager to start capitalizing on his experience. After battling at the front end of the charts in his very first single-seater race, another Brazilian like Fittipaldi, Gianluca Petecof, is now set to start another chapter in his busy rookie season.
Angelo Rosin – Team Principal
“It has been great to be back in action and perform right from the start. Our drivers certainly delivered in Oschersleben and, lining-up this close to home, we are definitely looking forward to keeping momentum. The last season has been outstanding in both Italy and Germany but for sure there is always room for improvement and we never stop working. I’m delighted to welcome Amna to her first race weekend after the tests we did together. It will be her first outing in a challenging environment, but we will give our 100 percent to make her feel comfortable from the very beginning.”
