The tenth season of the Italian F4 Championship will begin at Imola, once again, with record numbers of around forty cars on the track since the first round of the season. Always alongside the Italian series promoted by ACI Sport, Abarth engines have seen the emergence of talents who are now Formula 1 champions in the Italian series: from Lando Norris to Zhou Guanyu, including Lance Stroll.

Specifically, the Interlagos circuit will host the first two rounds, before the Velocittà and Goiania tests in August. The season ends in November with the third round in Interlagos and the grand finale in Brasilia.

The Spanish F4 Championship will start in May at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit. Among the most anticipated drivers in the Iberian series is Fernando Barrichello (son of Rubens, former Formula 1 driver), who showed last year in the Brazilian series that he can compete with the best. Also in 2023, the Spanish series will see over thirty Tatuus F4 T-021s powered by the Abarth engine debut.
