Fears that Mucke Motorsport may not be able to attract a driver for European F3 this season have receded after team boss Peter Mucke dropped a heavy hint that his star driver from the 2016 German Formula 4 Championship will step up.
Mike Ortmann, who finished third in the F4 rankings behind Joey Mawson and Mick Schumacher, was confirmed as having signed for Mucke for the 2017 season in PR from the ADAC, which promotes German F4.
"He's ready for the next class up," said Mucke, whose only single-seater programmes are in F4 and F3.
"When you've been around the block as many times as me, you get an eye for whether a driver can hack it in the next class up, or whether you tell him to stay in the same race category for another year."
