Promoted by the Asian Autosport Action (AAA) group headed by Peter Thompson, F4SEA offers a cost-effective first step to an FIA-certified career ladder in formula racing. The F4SEA program focuses on driver experience and development by ensuring a level playing field in a one-make FIA single-operator championship using FIA-F4 homologated racecars and engines. All drivers have access to race and engine data, and learn from race engineers and coaches, so winning is based on race craft and not performance aids. Meritus GP provides race engineering services supported by race engineers, winning driver coaches, and professional technicians and mechanics.
