F1 Academy race-winner Jessica Edgar will stay in the all-female Formula 4 series for a second season with Rodin Motorsport.

The 18-year-old raced in the series last year for Rodin Carlin, which rebranded last month to reflect that Kiwi automotive brand Rodin Cars now has majority ownership of the team.

She completes the team’s 2024 line-up alongside Lola Lovinfosse and Alpine junior Abbi Pulling.

“I am really excited to be working with Rodin Motorsport once again this year. We had a good 2023, constantly improving each time we went out in the car, and I hope we can do the same,” said Edgar.

“I would like to say a big thank you to Rodin Motorsport for the opportunity to return to the F1 Academy grid and keep building on what I learned last year.”

Edgar delivered the team its first F1 Academy win in the final race of the inaugural season, which she started from pole and also took fastest lap in, and before that she had picked up three podium finishes. Those results put her eighth in the standings.

It was Edgar’s second year in single-seaters, having raced in GB4 with Fortec Motorsports in 2022. She took a single podium and came seventh in the points table of the British series for first-generation F4 cars.

There is one full-time seat left to be confirmed on the 2024 F1 Academy grid at Campos Racing, with Nerea Marti widely expected to fill it after coming fourth in the standings with the team last year and testing over winter.
