The Chinese driver will line up for the Dutch team again in ADAC Formula 4. Han, whose nickname is McQueen, made his debut with the team in the ADAC’s high-speed school in 2020.
Cenyu Han (16, China) is back for more in ADAC Formula 4. The young Chinese, who raced in the ADAC’s high-speed school in 2020, will once again start for Dutch team Van Amersfoort Racing. “McQueen” will also contest the season in the Italian Formula 4 series and is looking to go on the offensive and establish himself among the best in his second year in Formula racing.
“I am extremely motivated and confident. I definitely want to close the gap to the top drivers. It will obviously be challenging, but with the support of the team I feel ready to take the next step,” said Han. “I learned a lot from my team last year and am already looking forward to the next experiences.”
Niessink: “It is great fun working with him”
The 16-year-old was involved last season in race weekends six and seven at the Lausitzring and in Oschersleben. However, 2020 was clearly all about gaining experience. “We are pleased to be able to accompany another driver in his second year in Formula racing. ‘McQueen’ was on a steep learning curve last year,” said Rob Niessink, CEO of VAR. “He is very hungry to learn, so it is great fun working with him. I hardly need to say that both sides are really looking forward to the new season and to taking up the challenge.”
Han, who was part of former Formula 1 world champion Nico Rosberg’s academy in his final year in karting, is the fifth driver in the Van Amersfoort ranks for the 2021 season. Nikita Bedrin (15, Russia), Joshua Dufek (16, Austria/Switzerland), Bence Valint (16, Hungary) and Oliver Bearman (15, Great Britain) also drive for the Dutch outfit.
