Montoya is eagerly anticipating the upcoming season and said: “We will all work together to have a great year and fight at the front consistently. 

“I just want to say thank you to my family and everyone else involved. Let’s bring on the season and give it everything.”

The 17-year-old competed in cars for the first time in 2020, racing in Italian F4 for PREMA.

Montoya finished 11th in the Championship and drove in ADAC F4 for six rounds.

2021 saw the Colombian finish 4th in Italian F4, taking nine podiums and two pole positions.

For 2022, Montoya competed in the Formula Regional Asian Championship prior to the European campaign.
