Enzo Fittipaldi will make the leap up to the FIA Formula 2 Championship with Charouz Racing System for the remaining four rounds of the season.
You will know the name if you are a motorsport fan and soon you will know the man as the grandson of two-time Formula 1 world champion Emerson Fittipaldi moves to F2 mid-season.
The young Brazilian scored four points finishes in F3 this year including a maiden podium courtesy of a second-place finish in Hungary.
The Charouz team will have an all Brazilian lineup as he joins Guilherme Samaia to replace David Beckmann.
The 20-year-old will make his F2 debut at Monza in just over a weeks time.
“I really want to thank Charouz Racing System and all my sponsors for this opportunity.
“We had a very solid first part of the F3 season together and I am looking forward to the next chapter. Monza will be my first time in an F2 car and I’m very excited.
“I will have a huge learning curve ahead with a 30min practice and then straight to qualifying but nonetheless I can’t wait to get in the car at Monza.
“The goal will be to gain as much experience as possible to get me more prepared for the last F2 rounds.” said Fittipaldi.
