FIA Formula 2 rolls into Silverstone for the British Grand Prix weekend, with PREMA Team Principal René Rosin hoping his team, can build on the “good things” from Monaco and Azerbaijan.
PREMA, defending team champions, had to wait until round five in Monaco to score their first win of the season, with Dennis Hauger scooping the Sprint Race victory, before the Norwegian added to that by winning the Feature Race in Baku.
PREMA Team Principle, Rosin wants that momentum to be continued by “reconfirming the good things” from the previous two rounds.
Rosin said: “The last couple of events showed great progress for our team and drivers. We need to solidify that growth to take it into a challenging series of events all on classic circuits of the series.”
PREMA have set the standard in Formula 2, by winning both the drivers and team championships in the last two seasons and have their sights set on improving their championship chances in Northamptonshire.
“We know this championship has razor-thin margins,” said Rosin, “All the teams work incredibly hard, so if we want to make another step, we have to aim for perfection and for continued improvement.”
Currently second in the teams’ championship with 128-points, the Italian squad need a high-scoring weekend to close the gap on current pace-setters MP Motorsport, who top both championships after six rounds.
MP’s Brazilian driver Felipe Drugovich leads the drivers’ standings, with PREMA’s Red Bull Junior Team pairing of Jehan Daruvala in third with 73-points, while double race winner Hauger is sixth on 55-points.
Nineteen-year-old Hauger will aim to score a race victory for the third successive round, while Daruvala, 23, is chasing a first win of 2022 on the circuit where he got his first Formula 1 test last week with McLaren.
