British Formula 4 racer Daniel Guinchard has announced that he will be absent from the grid for the remaining four rounds of the season.

The former Mercedes-AMG Formula 1 junior is in his second year in the series, and currently sits 10th in the standings with three podiums. In his rookie campaign he came ninth in the championship with a win in a reversed-grid race and five other podiums.

Last year he raced for Argenti Motorsport, the same team with whom he won the British championship, Ultimate Karting Championship and British Kartmsasters Grand Prix on Rotax Junior karts and also won the British title for X30 Junior karts in 2021, and this season he had been driving for Chris Dittmann Racing.

“It’s with a heavy heart that I announce that I will no longer be competing in the 2023 British F4 championship. I would like to thank the whole of Chris Dittman Racing and everyone else who has helped me this season,” said Guinchard.

“It’s unfortunate that I won’t be on the grid for the remainder of the season and it’s hard to take but I hope something will come up for the future. 2024 plans are very much unknown at the moment but I’ll do everything I can to get myself back on the grid for the future. Until then I’ll be constantly working on myself. Over and out.”

His departure from CDR’s line-up provisionally puts the team down to two cars for the remainder of the year, with Gustav Jonsson and Jack Sherwood piloting those machines.
