Kami Laliberté teams up with Schumacher at van Amersfoort

1 Mins read

Young Canadian driver Kami Moreira-Laliberté joins the van Amersfoort Racing team for the second half of the ADAC Formula 4 championship. His team mates will include Mick Schumacher and Harrison Newey.

Laliberté already competes in French F4, where he has had a solid season with a best result of fourth, which he achieved in the first round of the year. He currently sits 12th in the standings.

The baptism of fire will mean the fifteen year old will have to adapt quickly in a team that has already collected three race wins this year and at the hands of Joey Mawson has proven to be championship competitive.

A good race at the Lausitzring saw Mawson pick up one win and two second places, ensuring he was four points behind the championship leader, Joel Eriksson, by the time the sun set on Sunday.

“Obviously, I wanted to start the summer break as half-time champion,” said Mawson. “But I’ve secured a lot of points in a short time. I’m now even more motivated to launch the next attack on the lead. I intend to take advantage of the very next opportunity in the three races at the Nürburgring. The title fight will certainly be an exciting affair.”

Schumacher will want to go into the new season with a new mentality as he looks to get back into the points. The young German has not scored in the last two rounds and has fallen to fifteenth in the standings.

The ADAC Formula 4 championship will kick off at the Nurburgring for the start of the second half of the season on their shorter 3.6km track. While Eriksson enters the weekend as the series leader on 163 points.
