He and the team can now focus on the season ahead and the next challenge, as we head for the streets of Monte Carlo next month.
Giacomo Ricci, Team Manager Trident Motorsport, is delighted to have the young star confirmed.
“At his first F2 foray in Bahrain, he quickly merged with our team, which provided him with the maximum possible support while learning the ropes in the series, and became increasingly competitive. I am sure that, by joining forces with such a quick and determined racer, we will do an excellent job and achieve remarkable results”.
Following his move up from FIA Formula 3 last year this will also be great news for Bent as he too can now focus on the challenges ahead for the rest of the season.
“I’m very happy to join Trident for the rest of the season, It will be an absolute incredible challenge. I’m looking forward to doing it with the great Trident team. I think we’ve already made a lot of progress, testing and racing in Bahrain and I’m looking forward to unlock our potential, ensure what we are capable of and in general the adventure.”
