Barter “pretty confident” ahead of Aragon in Spanish F4

Hugh Barter says he is eagerly anticipating Aragon and the final three events in the Spanish F4 championship after an impressive season for Campos Racing.

The Australian also participated in a test at the Spanish circuit during his debut campaign in Spanish F4.

Barter currently sits second in the championship having scored one victory at the opening round of the season at Portimao and a trio of second places at Spa-Francorchamps.

He said: “With three round to go in the Spanish series I’m actually pretty confident after Spa and Valencia.

“Obviously the pace has been a lot stronger and even after the Aragon test here last time it was a good step forward and I’m pretty confident going into this round.”

The 16-year-old has performed admirably in both the French and Spanish F4 championships, Barter is leading the French series and believes he has improved since last year.

“I think it’s been a good season obviously I wanted to do as well as I can in both series.

“I’d say the Spanish has been a bit more disappointing but in the French at the moment I’ve proven that I’ve made a step up from last year. 

“I think that’s a good thing and so I’d say just coming into the season and showing who I am as a driver like how I approach a weekend is more me than what I was last year and I was more comfortable.

“I think the teams have seen that and hopefully the rest of the season is good the best I can do now is to try my best and see where I end up in both series.

Barter explained that Aragon requires a flexible approach when driving as each sector has it’s own unique charcteristics.

Aragon is a pretty technical track, I’d say between each sector there’s a different approach in driving. 

“I think in sector one and two it’s more so like finding the right compromise and then in sectors three and four I think it’s just more about making sure you get a good exit because there’s so much straight after the corners.”
