Santino American F1

Haas F1 Racing team has signed a deal with Santino Ferrucci as a development driver. Ferrucci, from Woodbury, Connecticut, got his start in karting at age 5. He went on to competeĀ in Skip Barber’s open wheel series and is a member of the Lime Rock Driver’s Club. He has been competing in Formula 3 for the last two years, in British Formula 3 in 2014 and FIA Formula 3 in 2015. He is with DAMS in GP3 currently. The development deal will have Ferrucci at races and tests, along with the team’s simulator program. Is it a sign that Santino will be a full-time Formula 1 driver in the coming year?

Keanna's love for performance driving began with winter driving schools in 2011 and quickly snowballed into ice racing. After turning 18, she got on the racetrack for the first time and went on to get her SCCA competition license for road racing. From there, Keanna went straight to rally school and later started endurance racing. In the meantime, she did a little autocrossing and became the only female driver to have made it into the Wells Fargo Invitational Autocross Shootout. In 2015, she managed and drove for two teams, Earn the Drive Racing and G-tron, in American Endurance Racing- where they put a car on the season championship podium in second place overall. In the midst of it all, Keanna continued to do rally schools and decided that it was rally, not road racing, that had captured her heart. After spectating at NEFR in 2015, she decided that one or two rallies in 2016 wouldn't be enough. This year she's competing in the Rally America National Championship with a 1.0L EcoBoost Fiesta in B-Spec.
