The Brit, who managed a single win and four podiums in his first season of Formula 2 with DAMS returns to Carlin after a five-year absence. Ticktum last raced for the Surrey-based outfit in a three-race cameo in the re-formatted Formula 3 championship.

“I’m really looking forward to the season ahead and working with Carlin this year, we had three productive test days in Bahrain and I already feel part of the team. We have worked really well together and already know what our goals are for pre-season testing.” said Ticktum.

“Carlin proved they had a race-winning car towards the end of last season and I really want to capitalise on that and mount a strong championship challenge from the start. I can’t wait to get the season underway.”

Team boss Trevor Carlin proclaimed that he was excited to get the signature of the Williams Junior, he hopes to give the Brit the car he feels that can challenge for the championship.

“We’re really excited to have Dan join the team. We’ve known Dan a long time and worked with him briefly in Macau a couple of years ago as well as in the postseason F2 tests in December.”

“He’s very quick, and a great racer and we are excited to see his true potential with us this year. We’ll be working with him to really develop everything he’s learnt so far with the aim to mount a very consistent and measured championship attack.”

“We have an exciting young lineup with both Dan and Jehan this season and I can’t wait to see them on track as team-mates. I know they will keep pushing us forward as a team and it will be up to us as a team to deliver a fast car to allow them to challenge for wins from the outset.”
