08.04.2013. Driver swap in the FIA Formula 3 European Championship: following Pascal Wehrlein’s (kfzteile24 Mücke Motorsport) advancement to DTM, Michael Lewis is going to race the German’s Dallara-Mercedes entered by kfzteile24 Mücke Motorsport from the coming race weekend at Silverstone.
Last year, US-American Michael Lewis raced for the Italian Prema Powerteam and finished eight in the championship. Now, the 22-year old who also contested the 2011 Italian Formula 3 Championship for Prema and finished the season as vice-champion is going to enter the Formula 3 European Championship on the second race weekend of the year. During the season kick-off, the economic-sciences student had to accept the spectator role but said: “I’m working hard on getting back behind the wheel as fast as possible. After all, I shouldn’t miss too many races if I want to become a factor in the battle for the title and the top positions.”
At Mücke, Lewis replaces Pascal Wehrlein who was informed just short before the season kick-off that he was nominated for the Mercedes-Benz DTM squad. So, the three races at Monza represented his Formula 3 European Championship farewell appearance. Following a race win and two second places, the vice-champion and best rookie of the 2012 Formula 3 Euro Series season left the most competitive young-driver series of the world as second-placed driver in the championship.
“I just can’t wait for getting back into the cockpit and contesting the second FIA Formula 3 European Championship race weekend at Silverstone,” revealed Michael Lewis who is determined to score his first points, at the tradition-rich British circuit. “It’s really exciting to be back racing, this weekend, and I will give my very best. At the same time, I’d like to thank Team kfzteile24 Mücke Motorsport and Mercedes-Benz for having offered me this opportunity.”
