Drivers – F4SEA

Drivers

We believe in the F1 dream, and all our young drivers are on the way. Check out all the F4 SEA drivers below, and keep up with the rising stars in the world of formula racing.

Keanon Santoso

Like all young aspiring drivers, Keanon started go-karting in 2009 in the hope of fuelling an ambition for racing, which he explains quite simply as, “a love of speed. I love it when you get the adrenalin rush especially when overtaking someone in a race.”

Hailing from a family who passionately embrace motorsport, Keanon’s source of inspiration is none other than his distant relative, Rio Haryanto.

Like Indonesia’s first Formula 1 driver, Keanon has chosen to take his path into the single-seater formula racing world with Peter Thompson and Firhat Mokhzani, the same team who shaped Rio’s humble beginnings.

Keanon is also acutely aware at first hand of the dangers and the reality of motorsport and explains “Rio worked really hard to get to F1 and never once gave up in spite of the challenge and adversity.”

It’s hard to discount Rio’s courage and tenacity, one that has earned the youngster a healthy respect amongst what can at times be an unforgiving Formula 1 fraternity. He sets an excellent example for Keanon to follow in his footsteps adn we hope to see a lot more of this young driver in the future.
