Finnish formula talent Niko Kari will race for Trident Racing in FIA Formula 3 Series for season 2019.

After the successful test days in Abu Dhabi late last year, where Kari tops the time sheets on both days, both Kari and Trident knew there was only one way to go. The contract was negotiated with great plans for both sides.

Trident is one of the top teams in the series formerly known as GP3. Last year it took total of six victories on its course to second place in constructors championship.

– This is a great opportunity for me. The test days in Abu Dhabi went very well, and it gives me confidence to aim high this season, Kari says.

With great experience on both driver’s and team’s side Kari is determined to show his ability and potential.

– There is of course a lot of new things to learn. The car is new, but it is same situation for everybody. As I’m learning everyday something new about Trident, we are also studying next season’s new challenges together, says Kari, who has been staying in Italy for few weeks with his team.

While in Italy Kari has learned to work with his new team and learn it’s routines. It has already paid off.

– The team demands a lot for its drivers, but I like it. It motivates me a lot, says Kari, full of commitment.

FIA Formula 3 Season starts on 10th-12th on May in Barcelona, Spain.

Kari and his support crew would like to express their deepest gratitudes for Veikko Lesonen. With Lesonen’s great help Kari will be able to keep his target to be a F1 driver of the future.

Kari would also like to thank HiQ, HPP Attorneys, C More and other partners for making season 2019 possible.
