Standout Formula 3 European Championship rookie Juri Vips is set to join the Red Bull Junior programme, according to Autosport sources.

The 18-year-old Estonian scored four F3 wins on his way to fourth in the championship with long-time Red Bull partner Motopark, which has run the drinks company's racing proteges for almost two decades.

But Vips missed out on the rookie title to Prema Powerteam's Ferrari prospect Robert Shwartzman, and also lost third in the overall points to the Russian at the final race after

with compatriot Ralf Aron.

Within the Motopark F3 line-up, Vips partnered existing Red Bull Junior Dan Ticktum, who finished second in the championship and is now tipped to race in Super Formula in Japan next season - and has also been linked to a Formula 2 programme.

Vips, who graduated to F3 in 2018 after winning last year's German Formula 4 Championship, is understood to be moving with Red Bull support into the new Formula 1-supporting FIA F3 Championship next season, potentially with ART Grand Prix.

He is understood to have had discussions with Red Bull driver-programme boss Helmut Marko at the penultimate F3 European round, at the Red Bull Ring.

Vips will make his Macau Grand Prix debut next month alongside full-season team-mates Ticktum and Marino Sato, ex-Carlin driver Ferdinand Habsburg and returning BMW DTM racer Joel Eriksson with Motopark, but the team is known

Neither Vips nor his mentor, 2007 British F3 champion and former F1 test driver Marko Asmer, were available for comment.
