PREMA Racing will return to action at Silverstone for Round 4 of the FIA Formula 2 Championship in support of the British Grand Prix.
The 5.9-kilometre track, which sits in the countryside of Northamptonshire, is a challenging one, with plenty of fast corners and chances to pass. Tyre management will also be crucial.
Shwartzman has raced at Silverstone in F2 and F3 over the past couple of years. The Ferrari Academy Driver wants to use that experience to help score good points.
Despite being a rookie in the series, Piastri has raced at the British track a few times in the past, and on those occasions he proved to be a quick learner. A member of the Alpine Academy, he is currently second in the standings, right before his teammate.
René Rosin, PREMA Team Principal, said: “Silverstone is a fascinating but also extremely challenging venue because of the multi-faceted approach it requires.
“To win there, you need to be perfect in many different compartments, from racecraft to set-up, strategy and tyre management.
“That said, we are confident in our preparation work, and we know our drivers can deal with what is required. Their efforts enabled us to climb to the top of the team ranking, and we don’t want to move away from that position!”
PREMA will take to the circuit on Friday for the only practice session and the qualifying that will set the grid for the main Feature Race on Sunday. The Top 10 from the qualifying will be reversed for the first Sprint Race, which will take place on Saturday along with the second Sprint Race.
