Fifteen-year-old Santino Ferrucci lands 2014 Euro F3 deal

Santino Ferrucci

A 15-year-old American has completed EuroInternational's line-up for the Formula 3 European Championship - but he won't be able to race until after his 16th birthday in May.

Santino Ferrucci, who contested a part-season last year in the States in Formula 2000 and Skip Barber cars, will make his series debut in EuroInternational's Dallara-Mercedes at the Spa round in June.

In common with new team-mate Michele Beretta, Ferrucci will combine this programme with a German F3 Cup campaign, also with EuroInternational.

Ferrucci tested with the outfit at Valencia just before Christmas, and team boss Antonio Ferrari says he has enormous talent.

"His speed is great and his general approach is exemplary," said Ferrari.

"I have seen a lot of top talents and I have to admit that none of Daniil Kvyat, Carlos Sainz Jr or Felipe Nasr [all of whom raced with EuroInternational in Formula BMW] were that good at the age of 15.

"We have realised that he is extremely gifted.

"We don't yet know if he will be able to deliver on race weekends right from the start, but he is still very young and has got enough time for learning his trade."

Ferrucci completes a three-car line-up for EuroInternational, alongside Beretta and Riccardo Agostini.
