MP Motorsport has made its third signing for the 2021 Spanish Formula 4 season, adding Gil Molina to its line-up.

The Mexican karting champion raced across North America last year, contesting several F4 series and USF2000.

His United States F4 campaign lasted three rounds and included three points finishes, while he had a far stronger three podiums – including a win – from his three rounds in NACAM F4. He also raced a F4 car to class victories in Atlantics.

Towards the end of 2020 he made his UF2000 debut in St. Petersburg, and claimed a best finish of 13th.

“I’m very delighted to be joining MP Motorsport for my first season in single-seaters in Europe,” said the 16-year-old.

“I believe they can give me the best tools to fight for the championship, which is my main goal for this year. I’m looking forward to my switch to Europe with MP Motorsport, since they have won the championship every year but one.

“I hope I can work well with my teammates, even though they will be the first ones that I want to beat. I’ve had a very good time with MP both on and off track and I’m very excited to get this year started.”

Molina has tested at Jerez with the team, where it also ran Charlie Wurz – son of two-time Le Mans 24 Hours winner Alex.

MP has already signed sophomore Spanish F4 racer Suleiman Zanfari and Dutch touring car racer Rik Koen for the upcoming season, and is expected to reveal at least one more driver.
