The 17-year old driver enjoyed a successful 2015 season, finishing runner-up in the BRDC Formula 4 Championship with two wins and twelve further podium positions. Following several successful test sessions late last season Newey is all set to undertake his first full season in the FIA European Formula Three Championship with the Dutch team. Newey will compete in a Mercedes powered Dallara, partnering Pedro Piquet and Callum IIott; the drivers so far confirmed at VAR.

Newey continues his progress up the single-seater ranks in 2016 after impressing during his full single-season debut year in 2015.Allied to success in the UK, Newey also contested several German F4 races – with VAR, where he gained valuable experience racing against some of Europe’s best young drivers.

The winter months saw more track time for Newey as he competed in the MRF Series throughout the Middle East and Asia.

The new challenge of competing in the FIA European Formula Three Championship will see Newey go wheel-to-wheel against the cream of young racing talent. The series attracts widespread media coverage with races shown across the globe on Eurosport, ESPN, Motors TV, BT Sport and many other prominent channels.

F3 Testing will continue at the beginning of March before the season begins at Paul Ricard in the South of France on April 1-3. Teams have a total of 12 test days, six of which are private, while the other six are official group tests

"I am hugely motivated to race in one of the world’s most competitive single-seater series this season. I think that with VAR it will be the ideal grounding for me to further my racing ambitions and to acquire all the attributes to gain as much experience as possible with a new car and mostly new tracks. I am really looking forward to tackling these fresh challenges."
