Newly-signed Infinity driver Christian Mansell joins Carlin for 2020 British F4 Season

Infinity Sports Management are excited to welcome Christian Mansell to their stable of talented, young drivers ahead of the 2020 season. Ready to tackle the British F4 Championship, Christian joins the four-time championship winning team Carlin, for his first full season of single-seater racing.

The Australian driver made his single seater debut last year, competing in two rounds of the 2019 Australian F4 series. Having built a strong karting career in both Australia and Europe, competing in series such as the FIA Karting European Championship, the WSK Euro Series and most recently, the Australian Kart Championship in which he placed 12th in the 2019 KA2 Championship. Christian graduated to single-seaters to impressive results, finishing 5th in his first race at the Philip Island Grand Prix Circuit.

Moving to the highly-competitive British series, the 14-year-old joins Infinity Sports Management as he takes the next step in his promising young career.

Director of Infinity Sports Management, Gary Catt commented:

“We are delighted to welcome Christian to the the Infinity team. Christian has decided to make the move from karts to cars as early as possible. But despite his young age he’s shown good speed and maturity, during the early stages in his transition from karts to cars. We are excited to work with him and see what he can achieve this season and beyond “

Fully integrating himself with the Surrey-based team in a pre-season testing programme, Christian is ensuring he is prepared to tackle the 30 races, across 10 rounds of the FIA certified Championship. Which will see him take to some of Britain’s infamous racing venues, such as Brands Hatch and Silverstone. The season gets underway at Donington Park on 28-29th March.

Speaking of the season ahead, Christian said:

"The first impression you have of Carlin both in terms of the workshop and past achievements and drivers is that it’s clearly a good environment. I tested with a few other teams, but this Carlin car feels really good to me and I feel like it really suits my driving style. You can’t just have a good car though, everything around you has to feel right. I think it’s really important to feel comfortable in an environment. I’m really looking forward to the season ahead.”
