Billy Monger has completed his first day testing single-seaters as he plans to return to racing after his horrific British Formula 4 crash last April.

Monger suffered amputations to both of his legs following his collision with Patrik Pasma in the final F4 race of the Donington Park weekend.

The 18-year-old has now begun a testing programme with Carlin in BRDC British F3 machinery, with the first day of testing taking place at Oulton Park on Tuesday.

Ever since his crash, Monger has made it clear that he wanted to return to racing – and ideally by remaining in single-seaters.

During the winter Monger worked with the FIA and the Motor Sports Association – the governing body of British motorsport – to overturn a rule that prevented disabled drivers from competing in international single-seaters.

He tested in Fun Cup machinery last July to get his race licence back and has since completed extensive testing in Carlin’s simulator.
