After he dominated the Italian F4 championship in 2015, the 17 years old Estonian driver steps up to the European Formula 3 championship for 2015.
Aron signed with Prema Powerteam, the same team he raced for last season in the Italian Formula 4 championship and also in the ADAC championship during the first half of the season.
“I am very happy to make the step from Formula 4 to Formula 3 and especially with Prema. We had a fantastic season together and I am grateful for the opportunity.”
His performances in Formula 4 left a strong impression to René Rosin, Prema’s team manager :
“Continuing our relationship with Aron really seemed like a logical choice for us. […] I was really curious to see him behind the wheel of our F.3 machinery. […] It felt just right to welcome him to our Formula 3 operation and line-up together for a new challenge in 2016.”
By joining Prema Powerteam, the outfit that won the team’s title for the third year in a row especially with Rosenqvist, Dennis and Stroll last year, Aron is expected to be one of the best rookies next season and he also might have a go at the overall championship.
Aron is following Lance Stroll’s steps who also graduated to Euro F3 after winning the Italian F4 championship with Prema Powerteam. Their paths will cross as Prema Powerteam secured Lance Stroll’s seat for the upcoming season.
