Swiss youngster Felix Hirsiger is set to stay on in French F4 for a second campaign, his management firm DCM has stated.

Hirsiger, 15, will be coming into 2014 as the pre-season favorite after a successful rookie year in single-seaters, which saw him finish sixth in the French F4 standings with four podium finishes to his name. Prior to that, he amassed a strong CV in karting, securing the Swiss KF3 title and the Swiss Rotax Max title in the Mini class.

DCM cite the Zurich-born racer’s age as the prime reason for a second campaign in French F4, with opportunities further up the ladder limited by age restrictions.

French karting graduate Bryan Elpitiya recently became the first driver to be confirmed for the 2014 French F4 season by series organisers.
