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.

That’s brave very brave

Thanks Williams ~! 🙏🏽😆😆

Not cool to have this as a best moment of your career

Good lad mate

They're known as The Finn Three: Valtteri Wingman, Kimi Iceman and Heikki Fireman

I remember this Fair play to him 👍🏻

I recall this... I remember thinking what a hero not just for putting the fire out almost single handedly but also for not bringing a blazing car into the pits which would further endanger people's lives. Made the right call and dealt with it like a professional

Spin beautiful

True Fair Play! 👏 and where were the flares to show the yellow flags?

If you look closely, there was blue jetted flame before the corner. The issue had already started.

Woooow gracias a Dios todo bien 🤭

We Finns know how (y)

Heikki probably wanted to add some fireworks of his own.

The original wingman!

The stewards will give him a black and white flag! 😂

Top class Fire marshal also sprayed the car

😱, 🥺 & <3

2010 Singapore. Propably one of the best editions of this GP. Alonso vs Vettel, great charge by Kubica and Heikki the Firefighter. Propably GPs like this won't happen for so long...



Jesus está voltando,se prepara para encontrares com o senhor teu Deus

Had the Halo been there he wouldn't have had as easy a time getting out. Imagine if the car had been upside down. A risk the FIA never seem to have considered.

that was really close


Well done, quick thinking not to choke up the pitlane.
