Belgian Ulysse De Pauw will graduate to the BRDC British F3 Championship in 2019, completing the three-car line-up for Douglas Motorsport.
The 17-year-old finished third overall in the French F4 Championship last year, in his first year of single seater racing. Showing excellent consistency and speed, De Pauw scored a maiden podium in just his fifth race on the legendary Pau street circuit, and then followed that up with a breakthrough victory at Spa-Francorchamps.
Finishing inside the top-seven at every race, he scored a total of five podiums and was just 13 points shy of the runner-up position in the championship standings.
His maiden single seater season followed a superb karting career that began in 2009, and saw him claim the 2012 Rotax Max Challenge Minimax title. He was second in the 2013 BNL Karting Series in Rotax Max Junior and third in the 2015 WSK Super Masters Series in the KFJ category.
Further success followed in 2016 where he was third in WSK Super Master Series OKJ, before a busy season in 2017 which saw him take third place overall finishes in the WSK Super Master Series OKJ, WSK Champions Cup, IAME International Final and the WSK Super Master Series.
The Belgian teenager is the third F4 graduate to join the Douglas Motorsport team for the forthcoming British F3 season, joining British F4 champion Kiern Jewiss and American F4 race winner Benjamin Pedersen at the squad.
