Bianca Bustamante has just announced that she will be joining the 2023 Formula 4 UAE Championship with Prema. The series will have five rounds (15 races total) on three circuits, with the following schedule:

  • January 13-14: Dubai Autodrome, Dubai
  • January 27-28: Kuwait Motor Town, Ali Sabah Al Salem
  • January 31-February 1: Kuwait Motor Town, Ali Sabah Al Salem

  • February 18-19: Yas Marina Circuit, Abu Dhabi

For those unfamiliar, Prema is a motorsports team competing in junior categories, known for its drivers who graduated to Formula 1 such as Pierre Gasly, Charles Leclerc, and Oscar Piastri.

While Bianca is in good hands, being on a top team doesn’t guarantee success, so it’s up to her to deliver the results. We wish her the best.
