Maximilian Günther has parted company with Mücke Motorsport ahead of the FIA European Formula 3 Championship weekend at the Nurburgring.

The eighteen-year-old, who won one of the races at the Norisring earlier this season and currently sits eighth in the championship standings, has split with the team that he has been racing for since he was fourteen, having moved to the team in the ADAC Formel Masters championship.

Günther and Mücke have split following a mutual agreement, with the announcement coming on the young German’s personal website.

“I look back together with Mucke Motorsport on three successful years in formula racing,” said Gunther. “In the seasons 2013 and 2014 we won together the vice-drivers’ championship in ADAC Formula Masters.

“This year, the podium at the Pau Grand Prix and the victory at the Norisring are included among the highlights of my rookie season.

“I wish Peter Mucke and his team all the best and look forward to the next challenge of my motorsport career.”
