Motor racing in his DNA: ADAC Formula 4 champion Jonny Edgar in profile

Jonny Edgar acknowledged the most important success of his career to date without any great show of emotion. Even his team had to ask him to come out of his shell a little after his terrific charge up the field in the final ADAC Formula 4 race of the season at Oschersleben. But 16-year-old Edgar is not one to broadcast his feelings, preferring to keep his emotions to himself, and this detachment characterised the Van Amersfoort driver's season. He was the dominant force initially but suddenly appeared to be the big loser at the weekend, only to hit back with determination and strength in the last race. In an extremely exciting season finale, Edgar managed to catch team-mate Jak Crawford and secure the championship title in the ADAC High-Speed Academy with a two-point lead.

Jonny Edgar (16, England, Van Amersfoort Racing) delivered an outstanding performance in the last race of the season at Oschersleben to wrap up the ADAC Formula 4 championship after catching and overtaking team-mate Jak Crawford (15, USA). Red Bull Junior Edgar went on a strong charge from seventh place on the grid in the final race of the year to finish in P2 and bank enough points to clinch the championship. After his two victories in the first two races at Oschersleben, Crawford went into the final race nine points ahead of Edgar. However, he made hardly any progress from eighth on the grid and ultimately had to settle for sixth. After 21 thrilling races this season, the title in the ADAC High-Speed Academy was decided by just two points. And amid all the excitement, Rookie champion Tim Tramnitz (15, Germany, US Racing) was recording a maiden win in the series.

It is a duel that has dominated the whole season, and it is about to culminate on the final weekend at Oschersleben (6th - 8th November) - Jonny Edgar (16, England) versus Jak Crawford (15, USA), two Red Bull Junior members of the Van Amersfoort squad in pursuit of the ADAC Formula 4 title.
