Son of former F1 star to race in Italian F4

Sebastian Montoya, son of Juan Pablo, will compete in the Italian Formula 4 championship for a second season.

Juan Pablo Montoya raced for the Williams and McLaren teams between 2001 and midway through 2006. The fiery Columbian was a fan favorite due to his aggressive driving style and all-out commitment. His son, Sebastian, made his Formula car debut last year in the 2020 Italian Formula 4 championship, a series he is set to contest once again in 2021. The Columbian will once again race for the Prema Powerteam, the junior formula car powerhouse that took Mick Schumacher to championships in both F3 and F2. The son of the seven-time Grand Prix winner will be hoping to improve on his 11th place in the 2020 standings especially when his teammate from last year Gabriel Mini, won the series outright. The still 15-year-old Montoya will also contest select rounds of the German ADAC championship in conjunction with his commitments in Italian F4.
