Prema Team Principle Rene Rosin is prepared for both the FIA Formula 2 and Formula 3 season opener this weekend in Austria.
As all teams brace themselves for what will likely be a whirlwind of new process the Prema team feel ready to race. Prema Team Principle Rene Rosin commented, “â€œWe could not wait to go back into action. It will be a weird feeling, opening the year in the heat of summer in Austria, but I think our concrete approach will help us to focus on this weekend”.
This sounds like fighting talk for a team really looking to push on and reflect their dominance in other categories at the F2 level.
Prema have in many eyes the hottest pairing of the year in double Formula 3 champion duo Mick Schumacher and current F3 Champion Robert Shwartzman.
“Our drivers are highly motivated, and we are delighted to field such a strong line-up representing the Ferrari Driver Academy.” commented Rosin.
We personally feel that the combination of Schumacher and Shwartzman will light up the grid in either a positive or negative way for the Italian team. Mick will be looking to build on some good performances last year and show he has what it takes on his #RoadtoF1.
Meanwhile Russian driver Shwartzman will look to put a challenging few months in which he lost his father behind him and focus on continuing his form from last year to do what fella Ferrari young driver Charles Leclerc did and make a speedy progression from F3 to F1 with back to back championships.
This battle of the Ferrari drivers extends beyond Prema with other Ferrari Driver Academy stars lining up on the grid vouching for a place in the premier championship.
Rosin however looks forward only to the next race, “We look forward to a smooth and nice weekend, but more than that, a safe one. Our determination has not changed, nor has our goal.â€
