MP Motorsport – Defending champions

The Dutch team, which leads both the drivers’ and teams’ championships, has won six of the first twelve races.

Having regained its championship dominance in 2020, MP Motorsport is looking for its fifth victory this season. Following in the footsteps of Richard Verschoodr, Christian Lundgard, Amaury Cordeel and Kas Haverkort, who were champions in the 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2020 seasons respectively, the Dutch team will be aiming for its fifth drivers’ championship in six seasons with Dilano Van’t Hoff.

The great start of the season of the Dutch driver, who has won five of the six victories of the team, has allowed Dilano Van’t Hoff to take a strong first position, almost doubling the number of points of his nearest rival. A start to the season that has Team Principal Sander Dorsman excited; “We believe the Spain F4 championship is having a very strong and competitive season this year. The level amongst drivers and teams is very high. Within our team Dilano van ’t Hoff is doing a very good job and has been impressive since the first event in Spa Francorchamps. He is very quick, but also consistent, which is key to do well in a championship”.

Their nine drivers entered this season, more than any other team in the category, have 331 points in the team championship, more than 100 points ahead of Campos Racing, the second placed team after four rounds. Regarding the progression of his drivers this season, Dorsman also expressed his satisfaction after having four different drivers on the podium; “We are happy with the progress of our rookie drivers. Georg Kelstrup surprised many by winning a race at Spa Francorchamps straight away. But also Noah Degnbol, Manuel Espirito Santo, Gil Molina and Rik Koen are showing good pace and potential”.

Regarding his expectations for the last three rounds of the season, the MP team principal is confident that drivers like Suleiman Zanfari or Hemily De Heus, who have not yet achieved great results, can show their full potential; “We expect Emely de Heus making more progress and moving further up in the field. The last rounds she made some good steps. Also we expect some strong results from Suleiman Zanfari. He hasnt always got the luck on his side so far this season, but when he can put the last bits and pieces in place, he will be right up there. Last season he was very strong in Jerez for example”.

To finish, Dorsman wanted to highlight the great competitiveness that exists this season in the category; “Above all, we are sure the last 3 events of the Spain F4 championship will be very competitive and will produce some great races again”.
