Cram Motorsport and Sainteloc Racing have announced their first driver signings for the 2023 Formula 4 United Arab Emirates season.

Italian team Cram will run Sebastian Murray and Flavio Olivieri for the five-round campaign that begins next month.

Murray contested the recent F4 UAE Trophy event at Yas Marina Circuit that supported the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, and the UAE-based Scot finished his first two single-seater races with Xcel Motorsport in eighth and ninth place.

He spent most of 2022 in karting, coming ninth in the IAME UAE Series and 63rd in the IAME Euro Series for X30 Senior karts, and also racing those in a club event in England, and ninth in Rotax Max Challenge UAE’s Rotax Senior class.

Oliveiri is an Italian shifter karter who has tested several times with Cram through 2022. He came eighth in the Italian championship for KZ2 karts this year.

In 2021 he raced OK karts, coming eighth in WSK’s Open Cup and 17th in its Final Cup event, and also did several F4 tests.

Sainteloc will run Theodor Jensen and Theophile Nael in F4 UAE, with both having driven for the team in Spanish F4 this year.

Nael was the first driver to sign up for successful sportscar and rally firm Sainteloc’s expansion into single-seater racing, and he scored 11 points in the final four rounds of the Spanish F4 season after having to wait until he was 15 years old to debut.

Two years ago he won the IAME Series France title on X30 Junior karts, and then in 2021 was second in the IAME Euro Series.

Jensen joined him for all but one of those events and claimed a best finish of 14th, but had far more success in Danish F4 where he claimed a win and two other podiums with Team FormulaSport and finished seventh in the standings.
