PRESSEMELDING: Dennis Hauger sesongåpner

Dennis Hauger er klar for sesongåpning i FIA Formula 3 kommende helg. Ikke mindre enn tre finaler skal kjøres sammen med Spanias Grand Prix i Barcelona. Dennis skal i år kjøre for teamet Prema, og han er fortsatt en del av Red Bull Junior Team. Det er ikke færre enn fem Red Bull Juniors som i år kjører F3-mesterskapet.

PRESSEMELDING fra Red Bull Jr Team

  • #1 Dennis Hauger (NOR – Prema Dallara Mecachrome)
  • #4 Jack Doohan (AUS – Trident Dallara Mecachrome)
  • #10 Jak Crawford (USA – HitechGP Dallara Mecachrome)
  • #11 Ayumu Iwasa (JAP – HitechGP Dallara Mecachrome)
  • #25 Jonny Edgar (GBR – Carlin Dallara Mecachrome)
One sixth of the F3 grid in Barcelona should be Red Bull Juniors, so if ‘beating your teammate” is the first order of business for any driver it should be quite a season. Jonny Edgar, Ayumu Iwasa and Jak Crawford have stepped up from F4 while Jack Doohan and Dennis Hauger have the F3 experience of 2020 on their side.
Norwegian Hauger and Australian Doohan are both 18 and were frustrated with their 2020 F3 seasons that showed their considerable ability but denied them a good points haul.
16-year-old American Crawford and 17-year-old Briton Edgar step up from superb F4 seasons and intense rivalry in 2020 to what both know will be a big challenge. Iwasa, the 19-year-old Japanese, won the 2020 French F4 Championship but also contested the F3 Asia series at the start of this year.
Dennis Hauger ready for F3 season 2
“I’m looking forward to getting the season started of course. We had an unofficial test there a couple of weeks ago and that was pretty decent. We got done at the test what we needed to do. So I am looking forward to getting out there with everyone else and see where we are.”
“I haven’t raced there too much but I raced there last year in F3 and did a race in regional where I put it on pole, so that’s pretty good.”
“The track is not so bad, also with the new Turn 10 it’s interesting, that puts more load into the tyres, especially for the race. There are changes also with the schedule, so that will change things, it should be interesting to see how it all works out.”
“With the new race format it is going to be important to keep the consistency through the season and play it a bit smart, especially with the first two races with the reversed grid so it’s going to be cool to see how it works out.”
