What is Formula 4?

Formula 4 or simply 'F4' as it is known, is a developmental single seater open-wheel racing category for young drivers who are serious about a pathway to the top of motor sport.

It is based on the new FIA international regulations for Formula 4 with a focus on keeping costs down and guaranteeing the highest possible safety standards. It’s built on four cornerstones: technical regulations, organisational standards, sporting regulations, and marketing and communications.
