Dubai: Logan Hannah poised for Formula 4 debut later this month at Yas Marina Circuit

Dubai Oct 17th – Sixteen-year-old Logan Hannah is set to make her debut in an F4UAE Tatuus race car after confirming her first official test day Yas Marina Circuit later this month.

Hannah will debut with the SILBERPFEIL Energy Dubai team on October 27, which is the first official day of pre-season testing for the six-round 2017/18 F4UAE Championship powered by Abarth.

Having spent the summer months in the UK, the Dubai resident has been honing her race craft in a Ginetta Juniors testing and simulator program with Richardson Racing, Formula 4 simulator training at Arden Motorsport in Banbury with the YRDA (Young Racing Driver Academy), plus extensive karting racing in Scotland and at the UAE’s Dubai Kartdrome.

One week prior to her first test, Hannah is set to travel back to Arden for a full day of F4 simulator training, specifically on the Yas Marina Circuit configuration. This will assist in increasing the teenager’s familiarity and expectations of the circuit before sitting in the SILBERPFEUIL Tatuus race car for the first time on track.

“To be given the opportunity to test a Formula 4 car in the UAE is such a huge honour,” said Hannah. “Driving at Yas Marina Circuit, where I have been watching my dad race Radicals since I was 10 years old, is also something I had always wished for. So a big thanks to Kevin Day for giving me the opportunity to go out and show what I can do with the SILBERPFEIL Energy Dubai team.

“As a race driver I’ve always wanted to be recognised for my abilities and not by any boundaries that may define me, and without my family’s support and encouragement I wouldn’t be here. They’ve given up so much for me to be where I am now,” concluded Hannah.

With hopes to have a career in open-wheelers in the USA or Europe, Hannah will use the F4UAE test to help make her official transition from karting to single seater racing while setting realistic expectations on growing accustomed to both the car’s handling plus the unique track conditions in the Middle East. The 16-year-old will also look at other potential testing options in December at the Dubai Autodrome, which would complete the racer’s experience on both F4UAE championship circuits.

Team owner of the SILBERPFEIL Energy Dubai team, Kevin Day, welcomed Hannah back to the team in which she first began as a karter.

“It’s great for us to have Logan join us for the official test as she started her karting career with us a few years ago,” said Day. “We have always monitored her progress after she has raced across the UK and the UAE in karting and Ginetta Juniors. For her to come back to us for her first single seater test is an honour.”

The F4UAE Championship kicks off at the Home of F4UAE, Yas Marina Circuit, for the official pre-season test on October 27-28, before the first round of the Championship begins in anger as a support category to the Gulf 12 Hours on December 13-16 at the Abu Dhabi Formula 1 circuit.

Love how marquez just stands it up over the line

Why all of sudden your post it's about Rossi's throwback? Will he retired? 😭😭 I hope not 😭😭

And the runaway leader goes to : #MM93Alien

Rossi’s bike always struggles on acceleration out of slow corners even compared to other Yamahas

Perez is Magnussen's Kryptonite

The Stewards determined that the manoeuvre by Perez met the definition of driving “unnecessarily slowly, erratically or in a manner which could be deemed potentially dangerous to other drivers” and therefore ordered a reprimand.

Am glad Checo gave Magnussen a dose of one's own medicine!

Bring back memories where perez slammed into Sirotkin.. so talented!

Perez driving slow, looked over, drove deliberately in front of magnussen. Starts his lap. Complains about his own actions. People is saying karma. If this was your precious Hamilton it would have been a different view right? Or max, or leclerc. Yes I thought so.

Love Singapore track, lots of action💪🏁Forza Ferrari🇮🇹

No sane F1 driver, on a warm-up lap, would try to pass another driver also on a warm-up lap on the outside in the run down to the last corner as both cars were about to begin a lap. That's the absolute last thing the driver ahead would anticipate him doing. And for all you geniuses who think that Perez turned into him, he was moving to the right to begin accelerating ahead of the last corner to begin a flying lap. The last corner is a left, so the natural entry line is on the right.

It's not like Kevin is an angel on track. The only reason he has mirrors on his car, is to generate airflow.

Nice to see they implemented a "minimum speed limit on track" after the last races farce. Ooh look, it was the pink cars fault... AGAIN!

Magnussen is probably the first driver in the history of F1 that managed to anger every driver on the grid, says it all tbf what kind of driver he is, like what the hell?😂

Once again Perez being a 🔔🔚 in Singapore! Must be something in the air

Perez wanted room to start a hotlap and Mag did not cede this space, so the touch... If Mag wasn't around fast, you should have facilitated Perez's work!

I won't even bother trying to explain this one, as 99% of the fan base clearly expect the drivers to treat the racetrack like a highway.

These two worth each other, only Grosjean is "better'! 😉 :v

Perez doing great in Singapore putting people in the wall as usual. Slim’s money is the only reason he’s still in a car.

This was all mags fault in my opinion. Checo was just about to start his flying lap for. Qual sim run.

Perez is always doing this even on the last race in Singapore he did that to Ocon

Not a mistake,, deliberate. Perez loves being a d***k. Deserved a Pen

The track was clear on the other side, but he loves sandwiches

Actually is a qualy lap in f1 2019 game start the qualy and that moment a car exit

I swear a lot of you twats don’t even know the rules set by the stewards so you just comment just for the hell of it.

Both pay drivers.....

Small mistake but worth a 3 place penalty

Haas has issues with the car and the drivers.

What is with these Haas guys, consistently getting into trouble with others/each other
