Arden sign Red Bull duo for 2018

Arden will run two Red Bull Juniors in its bid to take the British Formula 4 crown in 2018.

The team, which ran then Red Bull Junior Luis Leeds in 2016, came close to taking the drivers’ title last season, with Oscar Piastri finishing best of the rest behind Jamie Caroline.

Confirming Jack Doohan and Dennis Hauger for the fourth year of the championship, Arden hopes to go one better in the fourth year of the championship.

Both Doohan and Hauger have proved themselves on the European karting stage.

After securing Australian Kart Championship titles in 2015 and ’16, Doohan finished third in the CIK-FIA European Championship.

“I’m really looking forward to being part of the Arden team as a Red Bull Junior Driver in the 2018 F4 British Championship,” Doohan, son of motorcycle legend Mick Doohan, said.

“To drive for a team as well-respected and successful as Arden in 2018 is something I could have only dreamt of at the start of 2017 when I arrived in Europe to compete in karts.

“My experience gained in karts from the age of eight has provided me with a solid foundation, but it’s now time to take my motorsport career to the next level.”

He’ll be joined by Norwegian racer Hauger, who became the youngest champion in the German karting championship in 2016.

“This is the perfect combination that will give me the best setting to learn and grow as a driver, and to hopefully win races in my first season in single-seaters,” he said.

“I had the pleasure of visiting the team to do some simulator driving [for Arden]. I was made to feel very welcome and they took excellent care of me in a very professional manner during those days.

“I’m really looking forward to the challenge and opportunity that is coming up.”
