"I can only be proud of all of us", said Owner Antonio Ferrari - "from the drivers to all our engineers, technicians, sponsors and technical partners. It has been a long season that ended in the best way possible with the fantastic win of Alexander Rossi in the FBMW World Final in Mexico City and the close second of Antonio Pizzonia in the last round of the Superleague Formula Championship. The season highlights include the 10 wins and the FBMW Americas title of Alexander Rossi, the two wins and four poles of Daniel Juncadella in the first year of the FBMW Europe Championship, and the great performances of Daniel Morad as the Team debuted in the Formula Atlantic."
In USA, Eurointernational will expand the FBMW Americas program considering the great interest for the Team and Series, with a veteran and rookies line up. Their goal is to chase their Fourth Consecutive Title.
The Formula Atlantic two cars team is ready to compete in the new 2009 Series, learning from this rookie season with the best possible drivers selection continuing the ladder program from the FBMW Team.
In Europe, Red Bull for the 4th year running has trusted their Junior Driver Sponsorship Program to Eurointernational for the 2009 FBMW Europe Championship with Daniel Juncadella and there is already a long list of potential teammates for the Spanish driver.
In 2009, Eurointernational will debut a new independent Test Team of FBMW cars, for young karting drivers in preparation of the 2010 season.
Antonio Pizzonia for the Corinthians and Andy Soucek for Atletico de Madrid cars, will be the confirmed drivers in the Superleague Formula program for the assault to the 2009 SF Title. A possible third SF car is on the Team wishing list.
"Last year when I announced 4 Championships, no one believed we could do it," concluded Antonio Ferrari. "Now 17 wins later, our 2009 programs sound very different and have only one target - WIN."
