13 year old Nicholas Christodoulou showed he is a top prospect

winning Best Rookie Award in his debut F4 race at the Mexican Grand Prix


After an extensive 18 month development program, Nicholas was ready for race competition at a high level. In front of a large crowd at the Mexico City F1 circuit, Nicholas put on one of the best performances finishing 8th after making 5 passes during the 12 lap race.


Nicholas’ performance is yet more impressive with context that he had few laps to learn the Mexico City circuit. So as Nicholas’ lap times continued to close within a second of the eventual race winner’s best times, it became evident how bright is Nicholas’ racing future.


FIA F4 Mexico championship is comprised of eight event weekends. Mexican Grand Prix was the first event weekend in the 2018 / 2019 championship, where all drivers race Mygale race cars with a 1.6 litre turbocharged Ford engines capable of speeds over 140 miles per hour.
