It has been an action-packed season so far but the best is yet to come as the FIA Formula 4 SEA (F4 SEA) Championship fueled by Petron will conclude with a grand finale, featuring the last two rounds at the Sepang Circuit, in November and December.

Event 9 and Event 10, with four races each on Nov 22-24 and Dec 13-15, will bring the curtains down on a world record-breaking season of 40-races. No other F4 Championship to date has featured as many races in a single season.

Even more thrilling is that the remaining rounds will be staged as support races for the Sepang 1000KM 2019, FIA World Touring Car Cup (WTCR) and the FIM Endurance World Championship (FIM EWC). 

“When we announced the 40-race schedule at the beginning of the season, we realised it would be competitive and challenging for the young drivers. But for them to develop into top class drivers, it was necessary for them to race regularly, and at a highly competitive level. After 32 races, it is clear this objective has been achieved. The racing has been of a very high quality with every race closely contested,” Formula 4 SEA promoter, Peter Thompson, commented today.

Racing fans, who have followed the season on live stream, are eager to catch the final two rounds to find out who will be crowned the new F4 SEA champion this year.  With eight wins in the bag, expect leading contenders like Elias Seppanen of Finland as well as Australian Josh Smith, Lucca Allen of Ireland, Hadrian David of France and Omani Shihab Al-Habshi to lock horns yet again on the world-class 5.543km Sepang Circuit.

For the Malaysian fans, much is expected from local boy Muizz Musyaffa following his tremendous run in Event 8 where he sensationally won one race, along with multiple podium finishes. Muizz, currently undergoing his SPM examination, will likely be among the primary contenders for the top spots in both events.

“With the coveted F4 SEA championship title at stake, the competition among these future racing stars will be intense in the final two rounds. I am certain we will witness some of the best racing of the season in Sepang,” Thompson said. “It will be a grand finale indeed.”

About FIA Pyramid to F1

The FIA Pyramid to F1 is a 4-stage plan to develop young sportsmen, engineers and enthusiasts for careers in motorsport. The first stage is F4 where drivers start off at 15 years old, then they graduate to F2 and F3, along the way gaining the points they need to earn a Super License – which is required to race in Formula 1. In much the same way we had to complete all the stages at school and college before seeking employment, young drivers of the future must climb the FIA pyramid before they can race in F1.

About Formula 4 – The first step

Formula 4 is the first step on the FIA pyramid to F1. Designed specifically to transition young sportsmen from karting into the world of single-seater racing, F4 is open to anyone aged 15 or above and teaches the next generation the race craft skills they need to progress their careers.

Formula 4 SEA

Formula 4 SEA is the Asian regional championship of the FIA’s F4 format, licenced to race in Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, India, Vietnam, Cambodia and Taiwan. The championship is unique in that its utilises the ‘one’ concept:

  • One make: all cars are identical FIA-homologated chassis & engine built to FIA F1 crash test spec
  • One team: MERITUS.GP is the exclusive race engineering service provider
  • One data: all drivers’ data and team’s historic data is accessible to all
  • One dream: win 12 FIA Super Licence points
