The 18-year-old driver joins the Spain-based outfit to contest the full Euroformula Open Championship in 2018

Drivex has confirmed that it has added German Jannes Fittje to its Euroformula Open Championship lineup joining forces with Christian Hahn and Lukas Dunner. Fittje made his debut with a Drivex-entered Dallara F312 at recent Winter Series event in Le Castellet and stepped onto the podium in race one.

The Bremen native recorded a season-high second place finish at Monza and had other three third places on his tally last year. Fittje secured the runner-up spot in the Rookies’ class and ranked 5th in the Drivers’ standings.

Jannes Fittje explains: “I am really happy to join Drivex for 2018. The team did a great job the last two seasons and hopefully this year we will fight for the championship together. Now we have to focus on the next test days to get better than everyone! I would also like to thank my partners for their support and of course the team for this opportunity!”

Miguel Ángel de Castro adds: “I’m proud to welcome Jannes. He is a talented driver and definitively another great addition to our team in the series. We started working together in Le Castellet and became clear he is a quick learner. We made excellent progress both days and everybody is already looking forward to working together again and prepare an exciting new season, which I expect to be very successful with our trio of drivers.”
