F4 SEA to support Asian F1 rounds during 2017-18 season

The second season of the Formula 4 South East Asia (F4 SEA) Championship – certified by FIA, will see its first two events staged as support events at two Formula 1 events. The 2017 Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix and the 2017 Formula 1 Petronas Malaysia Grand Prix will play host to F4SEA's sophomore season. 

Season two of the entry-level junior formula category will kick-off this September on the island state of Singapore with two support races at the 2017 Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix scheduled from 15 to 17 September.

From Singapore, the F4/SEA will travel the short distance to the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia for the second event, this time with four races at the 2017 Formula 1 Petronas Malaysia Grand Prix from 29 September to 1 October.

The third event in the season will take place in the Philippines at the Clark International Speedway from 20 to 22 October before heading to the Sentul International Circuit in Indonesia for the fourth leg from 24 to 26 November. The championship will continue in the new year at Thailand’s Buriram International Circuit from 12 to 14 January before making a return trip to Sepang for the season finale event from 8 to 10 February.

"In preparation for season two of the F4 SEA, we wanted to emphasise efforts to further profile and promote junior driver development efforts in Asia," explained Peter Thompson, chairman, Asian Autosport Action Group. "Working together with Chase Carey, Chairman of Formula 1 and his team, these six F1 support race slots we feel will enhance youth brand enthusiasm for formula car racing in the region. This also fits perfectly with our ethos of ‘Is F1 your dream?’ by providing the opportunity for our heroes to live their dream and promote their talent through the F4 SEA platform."

"I am delighted that the F4 SEA Championship – certified by FIA will have its first two stages of the second season hosted during the Formula 1 Singapore and Malaysia Grands Prix," added Ross Brawn, sporting director at Formula 1. "It’s important that a Formula 1 Grand Prix can offer not only a great show in terms of racing but also can attract the interest of the younger generations and make them closer to motor sport grass roots. Its presence at the Formula 1 events will have a double benefit: for these young drivers who will have the chance to live an event side by side with the Formula 1 world, for the spectators who will have the chance to see exciting races and maybe discover the talents of the next future!"
