At just 18, Daniel Ticktum’s racing history already stands out as a classic story in the making. After serving a two-year ban from racing (one year suspended) for overtaking 10 cars under a safety car and crashing into rival Ricky Collard at Silverstone in 2015, Ticktum has produced a remarkable comeback despite being written off.

After picking up Red Bull backing as part of its junior programme in 2017, Ticktum converted solid showings in the Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 and Formula Renault 2.0 NEC championships into victory at the iconic Macau Grand Prix.

That was followed up by winning the prestigious McLaren BRDC Award at the end of the year and he will now take on a full FIA European Formula 3 campaign with Motopark in a competitive field which includes fellow Brits Enaam Ahmed (2017 British F3 champion) and Ben Hingeley.

An impressive showing in Euro F3 in 2018 could really send the London-born teenager up the pecking order to continue his remarkable career path.
