It’s official: Conrad Laursen will race in the Italian F4 Championship Powered by Abarth with Prema Powerteam. He is an authentic talent and promises to be one of the main protagonists of the 2021 season: just 15, he has already won the Danish Renault F4 title in 2020 with two wins and a total of eight podiums out of nine races. Following his recent success, he was named Talent Of The Year by the Danish Automobile Sports Union (DASU).
Coming from solid experience in karting, Laursen had the chance to join the Italian team for testing at the end of last year and is now set to join Prema for his first foray in one of the world’s most competitive F4 Championships.
In addition to the Italian F4 Championship Powered by Abarth, Conrad Laursen will also participate in selected events of the ADAC Formula 4 Championship.
“We are really pleased to welcome Conrad to our 2021 team,” says Angelo Rosin, Team Principal. “We already had the chance to work with him in testing last season, and I have to say we were impressed. Having already worked in anticipation of the coming championship, I am sure that Conrad has what it takes to succeed in his first season at this level and we look forward to seeing him make further progress.”
“I am extremely proud and happy to join Prema Powerteam,” adds young driver Conrad Laursen. “My goal has always been to drive with Prema. I am sure this is the best place for me to develop as a driver. I can’t wait to get started, and I am sure that together we will accomplish great results. I would like to thank Prema and my partners AF Corse UK for making this possible.”
