After two seasons of F4, the first in Great Britain and the most recent in Italy, the time for promotion has arrived for Ugo Ugochukwu. Vice-champion of the transalpine championship in 2023 under the colors of Prema after finishing 3e in 2022 on the other side of the Channel with Carlin, the protégé of McLaren will discover FRECA in 2024.

Unsurprisingly, the New York native won't be too disoriented since he will once again represent Prema. For the moment, he is only the third driver confirmed on the grid for next season after his future teammate Marta García and Noah Strømsted (RPM).

« After a successful year in Formula 4, I am happy to announce that I will be moving to FRECA next season with Prema, highlights Ugo Ugochukwu, OK-J European champion in 2020. I'm looking forward to this new challenge in my career, and with the continued support of McLaren's driver development program, I'm sure we will have another successful year together."
