OLIVER WESTLING FINISHES 2ND IN FORMULA REGIONAL AMERICAS SEASON FINALE ON THE AUSTIN F1 CIRCUIT


Capping an impressive rookie season, Oliver Westling finished 2nd in the Formula Regional Americas season finale at Circuit of the Americas in Austin Texas.


With the result, Westling jumped to 8th in the 2022 Formula Regional Americas championship standings earning two FIA Super-license points that accrue towards young drivers ultimately earning their license to race in Formula One.



Oliver started his driver development program just twelve months earlier by attending a Jensen F4 Racing Camp. After some winter testing, Oliver competed in the F4 California Winter Series where he scored a pair of 2nd place finishes en route to finishing 2nd in the winter series championship.


Oliver then entered the 2022 F4 US Championship series, where he quickly progressed to finish regularly in the Top 10. In total, Oliver competed in eighteen (18) races over seven event weekends driving the Ligier F4 car, including the first four rounds of the 2022 F4 US Championship.


In order to gain advance knowledge of F4 US series circuits, Oliver also began a testing program driving our team's new Ligier F3 car with tests at Road America, Mid-Ohio and New Jersey.



Graduating to the Formula Regional Americas Championship was another big step in Oliver's race car driver development program, with view to competing full-time in the series during the 2023 race season.


Jensen F4 Championship Team owner Eric Jensen comments, "We have been quite pragmatic with Oliver's development program during the past year. Obviously a young driver needs to show that he is both competitive and safe before graduating to the next step on the F1 driver development ladder. Oliver has surely been one of the best students that I've had in my 20 year coaching career, and the results speak for themselves with his F3 series podium at the Austin F1 track. I very much look forward to our next chapter together, helping Oliver to what hopefully can be a championship winning season in the Formula Regional series in the 2023 season."
