Mexican racer Sebastian Alvarez has been confirmed for a second season in British F4 with Double R Racing.
The former WSK and CIK-FIA karter posted a best overall finish of sixth in his rookie campaign last season on his way to fifth in the Rookie Cup.
“It’s great to be back with Double R for my second season in British F4”, Alvarez said. “I really enjoyed my first year in the championship, we had some good results and I learnt a lot as well which I aim to put into practice.
“Double R is a fantastic team, they proved that by winning the title last year, and I’m confident we can make very strong progress together this season.”
Alvarez will be teamed with British rookie Louis Foster in what should prove to be a solid pairing. Double R team principal Anthony Hieatt said: “We’re delighted to see Seb return as a Double R driver for 2019 and very much looking forward to working with him again this year.
“He made strong progress in his first season last year, and we’re sure he’ll continue to make big strides this season.
“There were some impressive performances last year, not least at Snetterton where he was top six and then a real standout drive in the pouring rain at Knockhill.”
“We know there is a huge amount of potential for Seb to be an outright podium contender in his second season with us.”
The British F4 season kicks off in support of the British Touring Car Championship over the weekend of April 6/7.
