The Red Bull Junior Team already has drivers for 2017


The talent is a differential value and Red Bull is still looking for
champions among younger drivers
. Thus it is patent with the confirmation
the alignment of the Red Bull Junior Team ahead of the season 2017,
structure that will count this year with five riders and two new faces. The
‘repeaters’ Pierre Gasly, Niko Kari and Richard Verschoor join the british
Dan Ticktum and the u.s. Neil Verhagen. The confirmation of these five
riders also implies that Sergio Sette Câmara and Luis Leeds are no longer
under the umbrella of Red Bull, although both programs are closed for this

Pierre Gasly continues to be the icon of the Red Bull Junior Team,
although the lack of opportunities to make the leap to Formula 1, with either Red Bull or Toro Rosso, will take the French to compete in the Super Formula
. By the time, the formation of the austrian hasn’t defined what equipment
she will compete in this contest. For his part, Niko Kairi will play their first year in
GP3 with the team Arden
after promoting from the F3, while Richard
Verschoor will compete in the Formula Renault 2.0
after winning the SMP F4 Championship
and the F4 Spanish.

With regard to the two new faces of the Red Bull Junior Team, both
will compete in the Formula Renault 2.0. The american Neil Verhagen makes the leap
to Europe
thanks to the austrian team and will face their first year in the 2.0 with the team MP Motorsport, the same formation in which
you will be enrolled Dan Ticktum. The british is without a doubt the big surprise in the
training of the Junior Team of Red Bull, since it has been a year without a license
to compete after an accident against an opponent under Safety Car
the F4 british. Despite this, Ticktum will have a second chance.
