Prominent single-seater team Double R Racing are a leading force in the BRDC British F3 Championship, and have won the title twice since joining the series in 2016, claiming the first title with Matheus Leist in 2016 and then last year with Linus Lundqvist after a hugely impressive campaign.
Leist stormed to the crown in the final meeting of the year in 2016, and has since graduated to Indycar. Meanwhile Lundqvist claimed the 2018 championship with seven wins across the season, and also secured the prize drive at the Rolex 24 at Daytona after winning the Sunoco Whelen Challenge.
Double R Racing also currently competes in British F4 in the UK, with Kiern Jewiss claiming the title for the team in 2018. The team's rich vein of form adds to their previous successes in British Formula 3, winning the drivers’ championship in 2006 with now IndyCar race winner Mike Conway. The team has also helped progress the careers of a number of highly successful drivers in addition to Conway, including Formula One graduates Bruno Senna, Felipe Nasr and Sauber F1 driver Marcus Ericsson.
Double R was originally founded by then McLaren Formula One driver Kimi Räikkönen and his manager Steve Robertson in 2004 as Räikkönen Robertson Racing, before Anthony ‘Boyo’ Hieatt assumed the running of the team in November 2010, leading to a name change. The team remains based in Woking and has forged a reputation, not just for progressing the development of up and coming drivers, but also doing the same for mechanics and engineers.
"The BRDC British F3 Championship is a fantastic series for any driver looking to make the next step in their career; it's very well run with a car that is fast, and importantly, very reliable with excellent technical equality.
"We've enjoyed three very strong seasons in BRDC British F3, won it twice, while at the same time enjoying a friendly rivalry with what is a very competitive paddock."
