FIA Formula 4 was established in 2014 to provide youth racing drivers from all over the world with the opportunity to transition from karting to single-seater racing. Formula 4 licensed by FIA, was developed to be a globally recognized yet inexpensive step between Karting and the FIA Formula Regional Championship certified by FIA, allowing drivers to contrast themselves to the best young talents not only in their own part of the world, but across other championships around the globe. The car is unquestionably effective, since current championships showcase outstanding grids and new territories are in the process of developing their own F4 setups. The F4 vehicle was meant to be affordable while also serving as an excellent teaching tool for young drivers who had never raced before.
There are numerous Formula 4 Championships around the world. The only differences between these championships are the chassis they use to compete with, the tracks they race on, and the level of drivers. The Formula 4 Italian Championship is considered to be the toughest one to compete in due to the fact that usually the best junior karting drivers of the world transition to that championship. Besides the fact that Italian Formula 4 competes in very technical and complex tracks, also, the best teams are located in this championship, such as Prema, Van Amersfoort Racing BV, etc.
Recognized drivers such as Lance Stroll, Robert Shwartzman, Guanyu Zhou, etc competed in the Italian Formula 4. This championship truly produces great drivers because of the level of the other competitors, the complex tracks they participate in, etc. The only downside of the Italian F4 is that since it is the one that offers the most, this also makes it the most expensive out of all the other championships.
