PREMA Racing heads to Vallelunga for 2023 decider

R07 Vallelunga - Italian Formula 4 Race Preview

The Italian Formula 4 Championship is reaching decision time as the series prepares for the 2023 season finale at the classic Italian track of Vallelunga near Rome. PREMA Racing is coming from a multi-faceted weekend at Monza, where it mathematically clinched the Team Trophy with three races to go.

While he already secured an early Rookie Title, Arvid Lindblad will be battling for the overall honours. With several wins and podiums already secured, he definitely has the potential he needs.

The same story goes for his team-mate, Ugo Ugochukwu. The American also secured multiple wins and was impressively consistent in the second part of the season, which gave more steam to his championship chase.

Now out of the fight for the title, James Wharton and Tuuka Taponen are chasing high-profile results in P4 and P4, while another proven winner, Nicola Lacorte, expects to bounce back from a couple of tough weekends.

Standing close to him in points, rookie Rashid Al Dhaheri made an impressive step at Monza with two overall top-5 finishes. Just like the Emirati driver, Brazilian Aurelia Nobels aims to capitalize on the experience she has built this year and move towards the front.

Coming back to the PREMA line-up after his Mugello debut, Alex Powell will make more mileage to gain insight and experience. Having signed off his karting career last week at Franciacorta, the Jamaican will make another important step into the next chapter at Vallelunga.

Angelo Rosin - Team Principal
"We are looking forward to the final round of the Italian F4 Championship. We have faced some challenges lately but we are determined to respond on track and battle for the overall driver championship. Having secured the team and rookie championships last time around at Mugello was a positive accomplishment, but we have a lot of work still to do. We head to Vallelunga highly focused and we are looking to execute, starting with testing, practice and qualifying."
