Not a single month without race action for the Red Bull Junior team between 2019 and 2020 as Jack Doohan started the new F3 Asian season with a win back in December 2019. He continued by winning again in January and by the time the Australian turned 17 on January 20th, fellow Juniors Liam Lawson and Yuki Tsunoda had already made winning starts to their Toyota Racing Series campaign in New Zealand.

17-year-old New Zealander Lawson is the reigning champion and Tsunoda was making his debut, winning one race in the opening round to Lawson's two. Lawson will meet Doohan back in Europe as both contest the FIA F3 championship. Tsunoda is part of the Honda Formula Dream Project, the joint venture with Red Bull, and moves up this year to F2 with Carlin Motorsport.

There are 3 Juniors in F3 with Dennis Hauger, the 16-year-old Norwegian, joining Lawson in the Hitech Grand Prix team. Doohan is part of the HWA Racelab F3 effort.

After just a few months off following his second place in Macau in November, Jüri Vips the 19-year-old Estonian, will be in Japan for Super Formula this season driving for Team Mugen.

New to the Red Bull Junior Team is Jak Crawford and the 14-year-old American joins 15-year-old Briton Jonny Edgar at Van Amersfoort Racing, contesting both the ADAC German Formula 4 and Italian F4 Championships.

The 9 event season starts in Bahrain on March 20th – 22nd.

Liam Lawson – NZL – 11th February 2002
Second in Euroformula Open last year with 4 wins was impressive while 11th in the FIA F3 series caused the 17-year-old New Zealander some frustration though he was on the podium twice.

Yuki Tsunoda – JAP – 11th May 2000

He was 4th in Euroformula Open with a win and 6 podiums. This year the 19-year-old Japanese started with a win in his debut weekend for M2 Competition in New Zealand's Toyota Series and will join Carlin Motorsport for F2 in Europe.

Jüri Vips – EST – 10th August 2000
Driving for Team Mugen in the Japanese Super Formula series is the next step on an F1 path for the 19-year-old Estonian.
