#30 Dennis Hauger (NOR – Motopark Volkswagen Dallara F317)
Debut in the Euroformula Open championship
Fresh from a stunningly successful weekend of Italian F4 at Imola, Dennis Hauger has arrived in Silverstone for a learning experience, his debut in Euroformula Open. The 16-year-old Norwegian takes a place in the Motopark Team as fellow Red Bull Juniors Lawson and Tsunoda are racing FIA F3 in Monza.
"It will be a learning experience for sure," smiled Hauger. "I just have to make the most of it, learn everything I can. I tested a Euroformula once at the Hungaroring but that was a long time ago on different tyres so I am almost coming to it new. Also I've only raced on the national track at Silverstone and that only has three of the same corners. I've been in the sim this morning so at least I know which way it goes," he added with another smile.
"It's a hard and cool challenge and I am looking forward to it. The team is very experienced and so are some of their drivers so I should get the support I need. The weather might make things tricky, we'll see. I am just going make the best of it, enjoy the power and the experience."
