Jonny Edgar on season-ending disease: ‘I knew what to do, but just couldn’t do it’
At the start of April, it was announced that Trident driver Jonny Edgar would be pulling out of his 2022 F3 campaign after being diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease. The Red Bull Junior driver had stepped up to Trident after a strong season at Carlin in 2021 but after struggling through Bahrain, Edgar decided to step back. The 2020 ADAC F4 champion sat down with F1 Feeder Series to discuss what he has gone through in 2022.
Vesti and Chovet talk F2, F3 and FRECA at Imola and Monza (Podcast)
They both were in Italy, but for different reasons: Frederik Vesti competed in Imola and got his first points in Formula 2 and Pierre-Louis Chovet was at Monza for the first round of FRECA, not as a driver but as a driver coach. We talked about their weekend, the ART curse and being a Mercedes Junior in the latest F1 Feeder Series Podcast.

Your season guide to the 2022 Euroformula Open Championship
A series with over 20 years of history under its belt, albeit under different guises, Euroformula Open will once again kick off with a grid of Dallara F320s, iconic side-intakes and all. The series served as a cost-effective way for drivers to capture attention. The past few seasons have been tough, however, as grids sizes have taken a hit due to competition from other series.

Your season guide to the 2022 Spanish F4 Championship
With Europe’s single seater landscape undergoing a change of guard in many ways, Spanish F4 has quickly grown into one of the most exciting championships to follow.

Here is F1 Feeder Series guide to the 2022 Spanish F4 Championship.
Prema back on top: 4 takeaways from FRECA Round 1 at Monza

Fittipaldi on recovery since Jeddah crash: ‘I’m in the best shape of my whole career’

Juri Vips on his maiden F2 pole: ‘It wasn’t like anything I’ve ever driven before’

Dennis Hauger on being a Red Bull Junior: ‘Does not give more or less pressure’
