Recently confirmed Red Bull Junior Enzo Fittipaldi was one of the many drivers taking part in the three days of post-season testing at the Yas Marina Circuit in November.
“I’m really grateful for the opportunity. It was great to work with the Carlin boys, they are a great team. ”
The young Brazilian was impressed by the performance of the F2 car he had the chance to test with Carlin and showed his admiration for the Farnham-based team.
“Our Quali runs were always in the top 5, and the race runs were also very competitive. Although this is just testing, it would be different in a racing weekend”, commented Enzo.
The 21-year-old was recently announced as the newest member of Helmut Marko’s Red Bull Academy, which he referred to as a “great step forward in his career”.
He will now be enjoying some off time with his family back in the United States, before planning the move to the U.K. “Dr. Marko wants me near Milton Keynes, within the 50-mile radius!” joked Enzo, while explaining he will be spending some time in the Red Bull Factory’s simulator soon.
“The goal is to continue improving as a driver. I will work harder than ever, and do the best with this opportunity”.
We are excited to see what Enzo can do to build on the great momentum he has shown through the 2022 season.
