Getting a jump start on next season, Dan Ticktum is now in Suzuka testing for the 2019 Super Formula Japan series where he will race against Red Bull Junior Team newcomer Lucas Auer. They are both part of the exciting initiative of Red Bull together with the Honda Formula Dream Project.

Also part of that same initiative and a new Red Bull Junior is Yuki Tsunoda who will contest the new FIA F3 series and ran at the front in the recent Abu Dhabi test. He will be racing against Juri Vips who made his F3 debut as a Red Bull Junior so successfully in Macau and also tested in Yas Marina.

Japanese 18-year-old Tsunoda is driving in the new F3 series for Jenzer Motorsport while Estonian 18 year-old Vips is in the same category seated in a Hitech Grand Prix car.

Tsunoda will also contest the new Formula European Masters series for Ticktum's old team, the double Macau winners Motopark. That series has grown out of the old F3 championship and will continue to run alongside the DTM.
