The long-serving Formula 2 driver has departed ways with the feeder series for pastures new.

Joining ART for the 2015, 2016, 2017 seasons and taking a time-out in 2018 when he competed in the Super Formula series, Matsushita returned to Formula 2 in 2019, driving for Carlin.

The man from Japan switched to MP for the 2020 season.

Matsushita’s epic win in Barcelona this season, starting in P18 and finishing on the top step, will stay in the driver, and team’s memory for a long time to come.

“I have decided not to participate in the rest of the F2 Championship this season.”

”The victory in Barcelona that [I] won with MP is an unforgettable race.”

”Thank you very much!”

Alesi made the switch from the BWT team with immediate effect.

Sochi… The Sprint Race that never was…

 

 

Mixed fortunes:

 

 

MP are currently seventh in the Teams’ Championship, with 121 points.

They’ll be looking to extract as many as they can as Formula 2 heads into the final two races of the season, in just over eight weeks time, at the Sakhir Circuit, Bahrain.
