USA F4 front-runner Benjamin Pedersen will compete in the 2019 BRDC British F3 Championship with the Douglas Motorsport team.
The Danish-American makes the move to British F3 after several strong years in single-seaters in the USA, including three campaigns in the Formula 4 United States Championship and selected races in last year’s F3 Americas Championship.
Pedersen, aged 19, made his single-seater debut in 2016, taking a podium in his first race at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, and securing a top-10 finish in the championship standings.
He was runner-up in the FIA standings in his second season in 2017, taking three wins and a total of six podiums throughout the year, including an impressive double triumph in front of the F1 paddock at the Circuit of the Americas.
With two full seasons under his belt, Pedersen returned to the F4 series in 2018, securing two more wins and 4 podiums in the 30+ car field, but also combined his efforts with four rounds of the 2018 F3 Americas Championship, securing 10 podiums from the 11 races in which he competed and finishing third in the championship standings. He finished his season with another impressive showing at the United States Grand Prix event, taking two second places in F3, and challenging for victory in F4 on the same weekend.
