  • Thomas Strick: "Keyvan is the perfect fit for our team."

Affalterbach, 15th February 2019 – Keyvan Andres made the switch from karting to a Formula car at a young age and wasted little time in demonstrating his talent in North American racing series. He won the title in the 2013/2014 Winter Series in the Skip Barber Formula 2000 championship. Andres has continued to develop consistently on the Formula racing scene in Europe and has two years of experience in the European Formula 3 Championship under his belt. Here too, he has improved continuously, claiming a podium finish at the Norisring with Van Amersfoort Racing last year.

HWA RACELAB is one of ten teams in the new FIA Formula 3 Championship. Each team will field three cars. The other two HWA RACELAB drivers will be announced shortly. The series will share the bill with Formula 1 at eight race weekends and features a total of 16 races. Barcelona hosts the opening round on 11th May.

"I am delighted to be part of the new Formula 3 team at HWA RACELAB. HWA has many years of experience in various different fields of motorsport, and I am sure I will benefit from that. My personal goal for the coming season is to continue to improve as a driver. I will do my very best to achieve this. Our shared goal is to find our feet in the series as quickly as possible. It is going to be a tough and exciting competition. Everybody wants to be involved. However, I am 100% convinced that we will be successful together."

Thomas Strick, team principal HWA RACELAB
"Despite still being relatively young, Keyvan already has several years of experience in Formula racing. This experience will certainly help us as a new Formula 3 team. At the same time, we can offer him the opportunity to take the final step to becoming the complete racing driver, as he looks to continue his personal development. He is the perfect fit for our team. I am looking forward to the season with him."
