Hitech GP have announced that our pilot Ye Yifei will line-up for them in the newly-formed 2019 FIA Formula 3 Championship.
The 18-year-old who finished runner up in the F3 Asia Winter Series joins Red Bull Junior Juri Vips and GP3 Series frontrunner Leonardo Pulcini to make up the three-car assault.
Yifei said:“I am extremely happy and excited to join Hitech GP for the upcoming 2019 season in the FIA F3. Hitech GP is one of the leading teams in Europe given the result they’ve shown in recent years. I have also proved myself as a Chinese driver to have led a big part of the championship and fought for the title last year in the Formula Renault Eurocup. “I feel very confident to team up with Hitech GP alongside two experienced and highly skilled teammates. This year will be a tough fight with the newly introduced F3 in a 30-car field but I am absolutely sure that with the team we will be fighting right at the top.”
