THREE QUESTIONS TO NIKLAS 2018

A race win and seven podiums – you did great in your first year in formula racing…
One of my dreams came true in 2018. It was always my goal when I first started karting at the age of eight to switch to formula racing at some point in my career, and it’s been totally amazing to have achieved so much success in my first year in Formula 4. I’m incredibly grateful to Peter Mücke, Frank Lucke and every single member of the BWT Mücke Motorsport team for the awesome, very professional manner, in which they’ve approached our work together. We’ve had a fantastic time – I could not have had a better team, with which to start out in formula racing. Finishing as best rookie in the overall standings of the German Formula 4 shows that I’ve been the most consistent driver among this year’s crop of newcomers. I’m generally very pleased with my first year in single-seater racing and am really looking forward to whatever 2019 might bring.

You’ll be part of the Van Amersfoort Racing squad, one of the top teams in motorports junior racing…
My second year in Formula 4 is fast approaching, and to contest the new season with Van Amersfoort Racing, one of the best teams in junior motorsport, will be an honour and a privilege. We’ve already had a few test drives, and I’ve been able to get a pretty good idea of what we can do in 2019. Having appeared on the podium several times last season, finishes in the Top Three and race victories are realistic targets. I would like at this point to thank Peter Mücke, Frank Lucke and everyone at BWT Mücke Motorsport, who helped me enormously in my Formula 4 rookie year. We had a fantastic time together. I would also like to thank my new team boss, Frits van Amersfoort and Rob Niessink for showing their confidence in me. 2019 is going to be a great year!

Thanks to your great performance in 2018 you’ll be sponsored by the ADAC Sports Foundation next year…
I intend to have another successful year in Formula 4. Everything is in place, and it’s just terrific that the ADAC Sports Foundation is now going to sponsor me. There’s a lot more to being a brilliant racing driver than just being fast. Self-marketing, media, fitness and nutrition are all important topics for any racing driver aiming for the top.
