The Prema-supported Abu Dhabi Racing squad will field two cars for this weekend?s Italian Formula 4 races at the Red Bull Ring, with Amna Al Qubaisi joined in the series by her younger sister Hamda for the first time.

Sixteen-year-old Hamda has some prior experience of an F4 car, and this weekend will see her venture into a competitive single-seater championship for the first time.

?I cannot wait to begin my first Formula 4 weekend on a great venue like the Red Bull Ring,” Hamda said.

“I feel we prepared well and I am determined to start a positive path which will be key for my future career.

“I am proud to represent the United Arab Emirates in such a high profile competition and I will do my 100 per cent to bring home the best possible result.?

Amna, 19, first entered Italian F4 with Prema at the start of the 2018 season, with her best finish of 12th coming in her debut weekend.

?We are arriving from Hungaroring carrying positive momentum in terms of the pace,” said Amna.

“Red Bull Ring is a track where there?s a lot to learn especially for the racecraft and traffic situations. It is always exciting to be racing at a Formula 1 venue, and I will do my best to keep up with the progress we showed recently.”
