At the beginning of March, Fernando Alonso announced the creation of a representation agency for young drivers to help manage their racing career. Initially they had the Frenchman from Formula 2, Clement Novalak , and the 15-year-old Bulgarian who was karting champion in his country, Nikola Tsolov , and now the Spanish from Formula 3, Pepe Martí, joins them.
“Born from the illusion of instilling what sport has taught us young drivers”, as indicated by the company from Oviedo on its website, it tries to promote the careers of those who are still in the lower categories and want to move up to Formula 1 in the not too distant future.
The latest addition to A14 Management is 17 years old, but he already knows what it’s like to complete a full season of Formula 3, one of the championships that accompanies the Great Circus around the world on various weekends. Martí participated with Campos Racing , in what was a Spanish association to provide the necessary experience to the one from Barcelona.
In his first year at the wheel of a single-seater of these characteristics, the Catalan could not go beyond the ninth position he achieved in the last round in Monza, which meant a haul of 2 points to finish 25th overall. However, he was able to be runner-up in the Asian Regional Formula after reaching the podium five times, and was only surpassed by Arthur Leclerc , one of the candidates for promotion to Formula 2 with Prema .
In the F4 in Spain, Martí was third, after adding two victories and nine podiums, but he was champion of the national karting championship in the junior category, as well as being fourth in the OKJ world championship and seventh just one year later in the class. OKAY.
Albert Resclosa Coll is part of Fernando Alonso’s agency, who is the co-founder of the project and a person with whom the two-time Formula 1 world champion has been working since the 1990s. He is an expert in the business of contracts and contacts to help youngsters grow within the paddock.
Another of the most important within the plan is Alberto Fernández Albilares , manager and close friend of the Asturian, who has the necessary links with the great Formula 1 teams.
The agency was created “with the intention of selecting a small group of drivers from the world of karting, the cradle of this sport, and instilling in them the essential values to achieve their goals”, and with this signing of Martí they want to increase their radar to bring a top representative.
