Aron to return to Prema in European F3
9 January 2018 – Ralf Aron will return to Prema for the 2018 European Formula 3 season.
Aron stepped up to European F3 with Prema in 2016, taking one victory en route to seventh in the standings, before switching to Hitech in 2017 and placing ninth with two podiums.
The Estonian racer, 19, will now switch back to Prema, joining the already confirmed Marcus Armstrong and Robert Shwartzman in the team's 2018 line-up.
"I am very excited to be back with Prema Powerteam for 2018," said Aron.
"We won a championship in F4 together and I have learned from the mistakes I have made in F3.
"Combining the experience and determination that I and Prema have, we will be stronger than ever and ready to conquer the podium at Round 1.
"I am excited to get back to racing already!"
Prema Team Manager René Rosin added: "We are really looking forward to work with Ralf again.
"He is smart, fast and consistent and he's also a very positive person to have within the team.
"He was able to take victory straight away with us at his Formula 3 debut and I'm sure he has the skill set to become a real contender this season.
"I couldn't be more satisfied with how our line-up for 2018 is shaping up so it will sure be a great season."
Aron finished third in last year's Macau Grand Prix with Van Amersfoort Racing.
