Israeli driver Roy Nissany says that his two seasons in FIA Formula 2 with DAMS taught him a lot.

Nissany completed his spell with the French team with a career best qualifying of second, as DAMS locked out the front-row in Abu Dhabi, before a pair of single-point scores in each race.

27-year-old Nissany said: “Amazing two years (with DAMS), one of the biggest parts of my career. They’re like a family, they took me in and taught me a lot.

“It’s always hard to say goodbye but it’s always nice to open a new page and I keep close friends.”

Looking back on the last weekend of the season, Nissany said: “First of all, qualifying was mega for the team! In race one, the pace was great and I was in fact faster than the cars in front, but it was just very difficult to overtake.

“On Sunday, for some reason, we didn’t have the pace we were expecting to have. We had some temperature issues and the car was just not running ideally.”

Nissany battled his teammate Ayumu Iwasa, who went on to win the Feature Race, off the line, which he described as “a very nice fight”.

2022 delivered more points with DAMS for the Williams Racing test driver than 2021, where Nissany was partnered by Kiwi Marcus Armstrong, but a lower finishing position in the championship.

The Israeli’s season had it’s ups and downs, at times looking to battle for podiums and wins. At Imola, Round 3 of the season, Nissany was on course for his maiden F2 victory, before agonizingly crashing out at the final corner, mid-way through the Feature Race.

At Silverstone, Nissany collided with PREMA’s Dennis Hauger, and later serving a race ban for accumulating 12 penalty points on his super license.

NIssany is one of the most experienced drivers on the grid and has been testing for Charouz in the post-season test, with his future plans yet to be confirmed.
