Pablo Sarrazin will move from the French Formula 4 championship to the Spanish one for his second year in single-seaters, and will race for the Monlau Motorsport team.
Monlau competes in partnership with Dutch team Van Amersfoort Racing, and also made its first venture into open-wheel racing last year in Spanish F4 as a three-car outfit.
Sarrazin is the son of ex-Formula 1 and Formula E racer Stephane, who is a two-time Le Mans Series champion, European Rally Championship event winner and former World Rally Championship factory driver.
“I’m really happy to join the VAR/Monlau team, thanks to everyone at KCMG Driver Development Project, as without them this wouldn’t be possible,” said the younger Sarrazin.
“It’s great to have Edoardo [Liberati, driver coach] by my side again, his knowledge was a big help last year and I trust him to help me improve throughout 2023. I know what my targets are, and I’ll do everything I can to achieve them. Now, we need to continue the hard work during pre-season to be ready for the opening round at Spa in May.”
Sarrazin made his single-seater debut in a guest French F4 appearance in 2021, and also began his rallying career in Latvia (due to the country’s lower minimum age). For 2022 he decided to concentrate on his car racing career, and scored three times en route to 18th in the French F4 standings.
KCMG DDP was launched two years ago, and 2022 British F4 champion Alex Dunne was the first single-seater driver on its books. The Hong Kong-based company also created the halo-shod car used in the Motorsport Games F4 Cup, and has its own team in Super Formula.
