Mücke Motorsport is busy with the announcements.
Last week they already announced one ADAC F4 driver, and this week two more names are added.
Oliver Söderström and Lirim Zendeli will be driving the pink BWT sponsored Tatuus manufactured Formula 4 cars powered by an Abarth engine. Now the team has three of their four drivers for the ADAC Formula 4 Championship signed.
Both drivers will be doing their second season for Mücke Motorsport.
German Lirim Zendeli at 17 years of age, finished 12th in the overall championship and 5th in the Rookie championship in 2016. This year will be very important for him, where he has to deliver top results. He has to finish in top 3 in the championship this year, to show the sponsors and the world that he is ready for a jump to another series in 2018.
Oliver Söderström is an 18 year-old Swede. After winning the Swedish Formula Renault 1,6 Championship in 2015, he jumped into ADAC Formula 4 in 2016. It was a very tough season for him, where he only scored two points for the championship. But now he has a complete seasons knowledge, so he will hopefully be closer to top 1o in the championship.
The Mücke Motorsport certainly are a top team. They finished third in the Teams Championship in 2016, under the ADAC Berlin-Brandenburg team banner. But just like BWT is a sponsor this year, ADAC Berlin-Brandenburg was the title sponsor for the team last year.
The team has already been busy testing. Last week they had some testing in Lausitzring, while they are testing at Mugello this week.
The season starts in a bit more than one and a half months – last weekend in April – at Oschersleben.
