French team Sainteloc Racing has named three drivers for the upcoming Spanish Formula 4 season, while Cram Motorport has also added to its line-up in the series.

Last year was Sainteloc’s first in single-seater racing, with the team better known for its sportscar and off-road racing success. It entered Spanish F4 halfway through the season running two cars, and finished the year with three.

Two of its drivers, Theodor Jensen and Theophile Nael, were retained for an attack on the F4 United Arab Emirates championship at the start of this year, with Luciano Morano joining them in the garage.

Nael came 19th in the Spanish F4 standings with four points finishes and then was 11th in F4 UAE with a best finish of fourth, while Jensen finished no higher than 14th in Spain and his best finish in the UAE was an 18th place. Morano fared even worse, not making the top 20 of any races.

The trio will now tackle a full Spanish F4 campaign with Sainteloc, and will be looking for improved results.

“I am delighted to continue with Sainteloc Racing for this season,” said Nael, who in 2020 won the IAME Series France title on X30 Junior karts, and then in 2021 was second in the IAME Euro Series.

“We did a good job during winter testing, testing a lot of things. We know where we are, but we have to see what happens in the race. I am very motivated, as is the team.”

Jensen may not have scored with Sainteloc yet, but he has had single-seater success elsewhere. He came seventh in Danish F4 last year with one win and two other podiums, then won from pole in last weekend’s 2023 season opener.

“I am very enthusiastic about the idea of ​​participating in the Spanish F4 championship,” he said.” This year will be the occasion to obtain good results, but also to learn many things. This is a great opportunity to show what I have learned so far.”

Morano had a best finish of 13th in a part-time French F4 campaign in 2022 before joining up with Sainteloc, and like his team-mates has been testing this winter to prepare for Spanish F4.

Italian team Cram meanwhile has signed Alessandro Silvaggi to partner the already announced Flavio Olivieri.

The 15-year-old former karter has been conducting F4 tests since 2021, and even tested in a Lamborghini Super Trofeo car at the end of that year.
