Jasin Ferati has left the Monolite Racing team and left their future in the Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine series in the balance.

Ferati was absent from the grid for the two races at Circuit Zandvoort last weekend after suffering issues with his helmet during Friday’s running, and subsequently he has opted to leave the team after failing to break into the points in any of the ten races so far.

The Swiss racer retired from four of the opening eight races and failed to qualify for one of the races at Monaco, with his best finish of nineteenth coming in the opening race at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya at the beginning of May.

“The Italian squad could rely on the lone Pietro Delli Guanti today after Jasin Ferati was forced to sit out due to a helmet issue,” said a statement from Monolite Racing Saturday at Zandvoort.

“The efforts made by the Swiss driver and by the whole team to find a replacement one with the right homologation and take part in the event were unsuccessful.”

Regulations in FRECA dictate that each team must field two cars in every round, so Monolite Racing will be seeking a replacement as they now only have Italian Pietro Delli Guanti to race for them going forward. 

The team have until the weekend of July 23-25 at Spa-Francorchamps to seek a replacement for Ferati, otherwise they will be forced to sit out the event in Belgium.

“Swiss driver Jasin Ferati and Monolite Racing agreed to take different ways in the future,” said a joint statement between driver and team after Sunday’s final race.  “There will be no further comments about the split.”
