Red Bull does believe in second chances

Jack Doohan, son of the Australian 500cc champion, will continue one more year in Formula 3 thanks to the energetic sponsor and despite a discreet debut.


If Red Bull has distinguished itself by something with respect to the rest of the teams, it has been, mainly, by its philosophy. Those of Milton Keynes have been as select as they are impatient with the opportunities it has provided to the promising motorsport and yet they have now changed the script with a very atypical second chance for the energy sponsor.

The exception is for Jack Doohan, son of the five-time 500cc motorcycling world champion, after a discreet debut in Formula 3. The Australian, who joined the Red Bull Junior Team in 2017, completed his first course in 2020 in one of the F1 waiting rooms with HWA Racelab, but failed to score points throughout a course that closed with an eleventh place as the best result in the last Mugello event.

His performance was not as stellar as those demanded by Red Bull to maintain his trust in someone, and yet the energetic sponsor has found him another seat in the category in which he will continue to count on their support, despite the fact that he will no longer be part of his young talents program. Doohan will share a team with David Schumacher, Ralf's son, and Clement Novalak in the Trident structure, backed above all by his two runners-up in Asian F3.

“I am very happy to join the prestigious Trident team,” said the 18-year-old Australian, after a preseason that has gone “very well” and which highlights the bond with the team. The tests will continue at the Montmeló circuit on March 16 and 17, but Doohan has already gained part of the structure after impressing the team by “how quickly he adapted to the car and the competitive results he obtained” during the first tests, as highlighted by Giacomo Ricci, director of the Italian team. Your mission now is to hold the level to the end.
