F4 Returns for F1 United States Grand Prix Weekend

The Formula 4 United States Championship will rejoin the race weekend schedule for the Formula 1 Aramco United States Grand Prix 2021 at Circuit of the Americas (COTA) in October, the series announced.

F4 U.S. was previously scheduled to end its season in November as part of the Austin SpeedTour event at COTA. The Formula 1 Aramco United States Grand Prix 2021 will now serve as the two-round championship finale for F4 U.S. competitors.

The F4 U.S. schedule will include one practice, one qualifying session and two races.

“The addition of the F4 U.S. Championship to the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix weekend is always exciting for the F4 championship and it signifies our place as one of the primary destinations for young drivers,” said Parella Motorsports Holdings CEO Tony Parella. “F4 U.S. continues to exceed expectations with large fields of deeply talented drivers. We are excited to showcase our drivers in front of the top motorsport professionals from around the world.”

Long-time championship partner Honda Performance Development will sponsor the double-header event for F4 U.S.

Smashing the F4 worldwide single-event entry record, F4 U.S. nearly maxed out the grid in 2019 at the U.S. Grand Prix with 38 drivers lining up for the F1-style standing start. The huge showing saw the F4 event become the highest attended in history, the series said.

The F4 U.S. championship winner will receive a scholarship to enter Formula Regional Americas Championship Powered by Honda for the 2022 season and the top seven drivers will earn Super License Points to aid in their ascension through the FIA motorsport ladder.

FR Americas will still end its season at COTA as part of the Austin SpeedTour Nov. 5-7.
