Jaden R.Pariat, an Indian racer, will compete in his first full F4 British Championship season in 2023 with the UK single-seater team Phinsys by Argenti.

Following turning 16 last week, he is getting ready to leave his home in Shillong, India, and come to the UK permanently. He will be concentrating on developing his international racing profile after an excellent maiden weekend podium finish the previous season.

Jaden started his career in motorsport in 2020, participating in the Meco FMSCI X30 National Karting Championship and becoming the first rookie Indian kart racer to finish on the podium. The kid, who was back for his second season, placed second while also competing in the JK Tyre Championship and MRF Challenge FLGB 1300.

Jaden travelled to the UK in 2022 to test the Tatuus T-421 and competed in the final two rounds of the F4 British Championship at renowned locations Silverstone and Brands Hatch after testing MRF 1600 and F2000 equipment in India.

The then-15-year-old excelled with a best performance of seventh overall and second among Rookies at Silverstone, earning medals to remember his maiden international racing weekend, clearly displaying his innate skill and promise.

Jaden will have more opportunity to contend for podium finishes in a highly competitive field since he will be eligible for both the Rookie Cup and the Drivers' Championship despite having participated in fewer than three race meetings.

At Phinsys by Argenti, where the Northamptonshire team has scored nine race triumphs and several podium finishes since entering the F4 British Championship in 2020, Jaden will be joining colleagues Isaac Barashi and Patrick Heuzenroeder.
