After having won the Formula 2 drivers’ title, the top team Prema also secured the Formula 3 and Formula 4 team titles. 

In the 2017 season, Prema Powerteam once again proved to be the best team in the European Formula 3. With a 127-point lead over the second-placed squad, Prema secured the FIA Formula 3 European Championship title in superior style. The points for the title were scored by Maximilian Günther, Callum Ilott, Guanyu Zhou and rookie Mick Schumacher.

And the team that can rely on the technical support of RAVENOL also dominated Formula 4. Estonia’s Juris Vips secured the title in the final race of the season, with his team-mate Marcus Armstrong finishing runner-up. The pairing had even more reasons to celebrate as their Prema Powerteam also defended the team title in great style.   

With a good result in the Formula 2 season finale at Yas Marina, Prema could add a third team title to their 2017 success tally to celebrate another amazing season in single-seater racing.

Worth knowing: Prema young gun Mick Schumacher, the son of seven-time F1 World Champion Michael Schumacher, will make his debut appearance in the Macau GP. The prestigious event is held 50 kilometres to the west of Hong Kong, in China’s special administrative region Macau.  It goes without saying that RAVENOL, technical partner to Prema and several other teams involved, also will be on site and will provide the teams with support.
