FIA F3 champion Martins steps up to Formula 2 with ART

FIA F3 champion Victor Martins will stay with ART as he steps up to Formula 2.

The Frenchman won the championship in a pulsating finale at Monza after taking two wins over the season.

Martins explained he only had eyes for ART after their championship winning success together in FIA F3 and the Formula Renault Eurocup. 

“The 2023 season will be exciting and motivating. After a successful year with ART Grand Prix, I was not considering taking the next step with any other team. 

“I can’t wait to discover the Formula 2 championship, which is tough and competitive, with such a professional and experienced team.

“The tests made it possible to remove what little doubts I might have had about my adaptation because I felt comfortable and confident.”

The 21-year-old is highly ambitious heading into his rookie FIA F2 season and wants to win the championship with the French outfit.

“My objective will therefore be to do everything possible to win the title in my first year. With ART Grand Prix, I have all the tools to have big ambitions.”

Matins is joined at ART by fellow Frenchman Theo Pourchaire who is undertaking his third Formula 2 campaign.

The 14-round F2 season will begin on the 3-5 of March in Bahrain and includes a first-ever trip to Albert Park in Australia.
