Elias Niskanen

“FIA F4 cars are very good, there is much more grip and the corner speeds are very high comparing to Formula Ford. My goal is to reach the top in motorsport and and make it my future profession. The F4 NEZ Championship is the perfect playground for young drivers as the cars are the same and the driving only makes the difference. The competition will be very high, but I know I have everything to fight for the title”

Niskanen will join the Series Official Test Days in Parnu, Estonia on 18-19 April, 2017.
