Quick young Chinese F4 driver takes motorsport by storm

By Fang Tian (People's Daily Online)    16:15, August 28, 2017

Cao Zhuo, a 15-year-old Chinese young boy and the youngest driver at the F4 circuit, amazed the world by his speed and specially designed helmet with a five-starred red flag, thepaper.cn reported on Aug. 27.

Cao officially joined the Double R Racing team in the UK last April, and started his F4 season.

Earlier this month, he attended the fourth stop of 2017 China Formula 4 Championship in Shanghai for the very first time as an official F4 racing driver. Once again, he amazed the motorsport community by securing a pole position with a record 1 minute and 53 seconds lap after scoring his first points at Donington Park Circuit in the UK.

The rookie driver was once a very excellent kart racer. He started kart racing when he was five years old, and gained many titles in kart racing championships. Those days provided a solid foundation for Cao’s F1 dream. He also encouraged formula racing dreamers to start from kart racing training.

Cao is expected to be China’s first real F1 driver. He hopes one day he can run an F1 race with his icon Fernando Alonso, one of the most successful and popular drivers in F1 racing history, said Cao when interviewed by thepaper.cn.
