MSA Formula contender Lando Norris will return to the Italian F4 Championship this weekend after a week absent. The 15 year old racer will compete at Mugello as he looks to continue his impressive run in international FIA Formula 4 championships.
Norris, who currently sits third in the MSA standings, 18 points off the lead having already picked up four wins over the season and will continue to fight for the UK’s only FIA accredited Formula 4 championship.
He last made an appearance in Italian F4 in May when he raced at Monza, returning to Mucke Motorsport for the fourth round of the season at Mugello.
“I really enjoyed my début in May, but I felt I could have done even better.” Norris said, leading up to the weekend.
“I crashed in the first race and I think I would have been up there in every race if I wasn’t hit from behind. There’s a long break in the MSA Formula Championship right now, so it’s a nice change to be working with the Mücke team and competing against different drivers. Hopefully we can keep the season’s momentum going this weekend and get a few more podiums.”
After retiring from the opening race of the weekend in Monza, Norris went on to achieve a fastest lap, fifth and third, a result which means he is still the highest positioned driver not to have competed in every weekend having collected 21 points.
On top of the MSA Formula and Italian F4, Norris has also competed in one ADAC Formula 4 race at Spa-Francochamps, where he picked up his first international single-seater victory after beating title contender Joey Mawson in the final race of the weekend.
