Falcon drivers close in on podium positions

After a disappointing race meeting at Snetterton, the three Falcon drivers, James Nutbrown, Ash Robinson and Patryk Szczerbinski all made significant gains at Rockingham today. The team have been busy behind the scenes, working hard to close the gap and Qualifying saw the fruits of that hard work with two fourth place grid positions for Patryk and Ash and James not far behind. Race one today saw a closely fought battle between six drivers with all three Falcon drivers involved. Patryk made the early running in second place, but it was Ash who emerged as the best place team driver in Fourth place after a race that could easily have seen one or two Falcon drivers on the podium. It’s not the result we wanted but I’m encouraged by the pace that we’ve found and we’ll be pushing for better in tomorrow’s races commented team manager Nick Streatfield.

Alexandra Mohnhaupt to contest 2 rounds of British F4

FALCON MOTORSPORT TO FLY AGAIN IN F4 BRITISH CHAMPIONSHIP WITH MOHNHAUPT 

  • 16-year-old Alexandra Mohnhaupt to be first Mexican driver in British F4.
  • Hugely successful Falcon Motorsport team return to the grid.

22 JULY, 2016 - Falcon Motorsport are to join the fray at the Snetterton (30/31 July) and Knockhill (13/14 August) rounds of the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford with Alexandra Mohnhaupt.
 
It’s a welcome return to the Ford EcoBoost-powered series for Falcon Motorsport who contested last season. Furthermore, in 2014 the Oxfordshire team achieved second place in both the Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain team cup and drivers’ championship with BRDC Rising Star Harrison Scott.
 
Mohnhaupt arrives having already competed in the Mexican F4 series where she finished second in the rookie standings.
 
The 16-year-old from Puebla, Mexico has no shortage of karting success to her name having been crowned National Rotax Junior Max Champion and Junior Max Champion in 2013 and 2014 respectively.
 
Said Mohnhaupt: “It’s a great feeling to be the first Mexican driver in the F4 British Championship. I know I can do a good job and get some strong results for Mexico.
 
“I want to learn a lot. I want to learn from the other drivers and from the team so I can go back to Mexico stronger. I can learn a lot because British F4 uses the same car as in Mexico [with the 1.6 litre Ford EcoBoost engine and Mygale chassis].
 
“The tracks will be the biggest thing to get used to, as well as the tyres, but I think I can handle them.
 
“I want to finish as high up the order as possible, but it’s all about learning more about the car.
 
“I’m already really enjoying working with Falcon Motorsport. I am confident we will be able to make good progress together.
 
Added Falcon Motorsport team principle Nick Streatfield: “To be able to get out on track with Alexandra is good. We’ve been working on it for a while.
 
“For her it’s all part of the learning curve; coming over to the UK to gain experience of a different championship. We are obviously very happy to take on that role and give her a different perspective to see how she measures against the regulars of the F4 British Championship.
 
“We’re keeping our expectations in check. We are going up against drivers who have been driving all year in this championship and have tested at most of the circuits. Alexandra is going to have to go straight into Snetterton and Knockhill, running at circuits she has never been to.
 
“It will be tough, but we know that and she knows that. That doesn’t mean to say we’re not aiming for the front, but it is more about Alexandra getting experience at the moment.”
