Hailing from around the world, from New Zealand to Norway from Austria to Australia the nine juniors will be racing across the globe from Suzuka to Silverstone, Buriram to Brands Hatch.

The breadth of experience is fascinating, Liam Lawson started 2019 by winning the New Zealand Grand Prix, the day before his seventeenth birthday, and now contests the Euroformula Open series with Motopark and FIA F3 with MP Motorsport.

Lucas Auer, the 24-year-old Austrian, does battle in the Super Formula Series in Japan, chasing Super Licence points and sub F1 experience. At the other end of the age range, second year Junior Harry Thompson, still just 14, continues his karting career after being named FIA Karting Rookie of the Year in 2018.

While one of our Europeans, Auer, is in Japan as part of the Honda Formula Dream Project, the same initiative brings 18-year-old Japanese Yuki Tsunoda west, to contest the new FIA F3 series with Jenzer Motorsport and Euroformula Open with Motopark.

Also in FIA F3 is 18-year-old Estonian Jüri Vips. He races for Hitech having joined the Junior Team for Macau last November.

The Juniors who set last year's British F4 series alight as 15-year-old dominant rookies, Australian Jack Doohan and Norwegian Dennis Hauger, can now be easier friends as they are racing in different championships. Doohan takes on the Asian F3 series and Euroformula Open while Hauger drives for Van Amersfoort Racing in ADAC F4 and the FIA F4 Italian championship.

In both series Hauger is lined up against 15-year-old Briton Jonny Edgar who stepped up from karting with the FIA F4 Italian championship his main focus but with selected ADAC F4 rounds also on his schedule.

A late arrival in the Junior Team for 2019, Patricio O'Ward came in as reigning Indy Lights champion and contested early road course rounds in the IndyCar Series for Carlin Motorsport before switching to the Super Formula Series in Japan as part of the Mugen Honda team.
