Alexandra Mohnhaupt returns to racing in NACAM F4
History-making racer Alexandra Mohnhaupt - the first ever woman to win a FIA-sanctioned F4 race globally - has announced she will return to competitions in the NACAM F4.
Mexican racer Alexandra Mohnhaupt has announced she will return to racing after a five year hiatus, as she is set to join Ram Racing in the Mexican-based NACAM F4 Championship.
The 23 year-old driver will therefore contest her fourth season in the series.
Mohnhaupt made history in 2018 when she became the first female driver ever to win a FIA sanctioned Formula 4 race globally: she did so at Autodromo Miguel E. Abed, when she claimed her first win from third on the grid in race 1 - and went on to win again in race 2.
She remained the most successful woman in F4 machinery until Hamda Al Qubaisi secured 6 wins in the F4 UAE championship between 2020 and 2021.
Mohnhaupt won national karting competitions before making her single-seater debut - both on home soil and in the British F4 Championship, where she raced at Snetterton and Knockhill in 2016, almost breaking in the top ten at her second outing. She returned to the British-based series in 2017 for a one off at Snetterton.
2018 was her most successful season in NACAM F4, where Mohnhaupt collected 8 podiums and the two historic victories, ultimately finishing fifth in the drivers' standings.
The Mexican talent signed with Douglas Motorsport for the 2018 BRDC British Formula 3 Championship - where she would have teamed up with Jamie Chadwick. Unfortunately, a serious testing crash at Spa Francorchamps ahead of the season put an end to her year.
The then-19 year old later announced a surprise retirement from competitions, as she recovered from the injury.
"I thought I would never say this again…I am thrilled to announce that I will be racing the F4 NACAM Championship with Ram Racing Team", Mohnhaupt announced on April 12th, 2023. "I am more than ready for my comeback to the racing tracks. Let’s do this!"
Five years later, she's back.
The 2023 F4 NACAM Championship is set to kick-off its season on 15-16 April at Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in Mexico City, and will feature seven rounds including a support event to the F1 Mexican GP.
