Pietro Fittipaldi, grandson of two-time Formula 1 World Champion Emerson, will make his open-wheel racing debut in the British Formula 4 championship this year. The 16-year-old will compete with the Mark Godwin Racing team.
Last year, Fittipaldi competed in the NASCAR Whelen All-American series, a championship that uses a variety of cars including Late Model stock and SK Modified cars.
"I'm very excited about joining the F4 series and of course competing in the UK," said Fittipaldi. "This will be my first time racing single seaters after several seasons in NASCAR, so I have a lot to learn as well as many new tracks, but I am confident that with the MGR team behind me we can be competitive."
