Reigning champions PREMA have pulled the covers off their new look for the 2021 season.
The Italian outfit that wrapped up both the drivers and teams championships in 2020 with Mick Schumacher, will carry the prestigious number 1 and 2 plates for the first time since 2017.
A great man used to say:
“It’s the same, but it’s different.”
What do you think of our new @FIA_F2 liveries which will take the track soon for testing in Bahrain? ?? @BAH_Int_Circuit #fiaf2 #formula2 #carlivery pic.twitter.com/5Usk78BcdP

Russian Robert Shwartzman remains at the team for a second season, after a superb rookie season that saw him win four races on his way to fourth in the drivers’ standings will hope for a title push this year.
Driving the second car is reigning Formula 3 champion Oscar Piastri who makes the step up to Formula 2 after narrowly beating Théo Pourchaire and PREMA teammate Logan Sargent for the title.
Changes to PREMA’s traditional red and white livery include a dash of blue to both the front and rear wing sections, along with a shade of blue on the airbox.
However, there are some subtle differences between the two cars. Shwartzman will have a darker shade of blue due to his sponsors SMP Racing, whilst Piastri’s will be a lighter blue because of his Alpine’s backing.
Shwartzman will race with car number 1 whilst Piastril will be in car number 2.
We look forward to seeing last year’s teams champions PREMA back on track 8-10 March at pre-season testing.
