Piastri to PREMA for F2 in 2021
PREMA Racing have announced that FIA Formula 3 Champion Oscar Piastri will join the team’s FIA Formula 2 Championship operation for the 2021 season.
We will see him on track at the end of season testing for the first time in the Formula 2 machinery.
René Rosin – Team Principal at PREMA Racing said;
“We are delighted to welcome Oscar to our FIA Formula 2 team. Not only he is a talented racer with outstanding speed skills. He has a clear understanding of the complexities of today’s motorsports and he is extremely adaptable. Having witnessed his progress and success throughout the 2020 season, taking our relationship to the next step for the 2021 FIA Formula 2 Championship felt like the natural thing to do and we look forward to having him on-track right from Bahrain”
The Australian driver himself can not wait for the new season to begin after a long spell of the race track following his September Formula 3 Championship title win in Mugello.
“I’m super excited to be racing with Prema in the 2021 FIA Formula 2 Championship. We had a very successful 2020 season, winning the Formula 3 championship together, and I’m hoping for another successful year with them. Prema has proven to be the team to beat once again in F2 this year, so I’m extremely happy to be moving into the championship with them. I’m very grateful to stay a part of the Prema family, and I’m looking forward to plenty more pizza and pasta!”
