The narrowest of margins separates Prema teammates Marcus Armstrong and Juri Vips (Estonia) after the latest round (September 15-17 Germany time) of the German Formula 4 Championship at the 3.7km Sachsenring circuit in Saxony.
With two podium finishes, 17-year old Armstrong is 1.5 points clear of his teammate, 212 to 210.5, in a field of 34 very fast race drivers and now leads the Italian and German Formula 4 championships.
Prema secured the teams’ title over the weekend. The Italian squad secured the teams' championship with still one round and three races to spare.
“Massive congratulations to Prema for taking the teams’ championship for the second year running in ADAC F4. I’m proud to have been part of this success for them,” Armstrong said.
Christchurch born and raised, Marcus Armstrong is the first New Zealander to be inducted into the elite Ferrari Driver Academy.
The 2017 ADAC FIA Formula 4 Championship concludes at the 4.574 km Hockenheimring circuit in Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany, September 22-24.
