Zendeli to MP Motorsport for 2021
Lirim Zendeli will make the move up from FIA Formula 3 to Formula 2 with MP Motorsport for the 2021 season.
The 21-year-old German will hope to build on his solid performances last year, claiming a win, three podiums and two pole positions in Formula 3. He finished his campaign eighth overall with 108 points for the Trident Team.
Lirim was at the post season testing for Formula 2 in Bahrain last week with MP Motorsport, finishing sixth on the overall timesheet.
“I’m very happy to be driving for MP Motorsport for my first year in Formula 2”, said Zendeli.
“With four victories, they showed true race-winning form in 2020, and I am eager to add to their success in 2021. The Bahrain test with the team proved to be extremely productive, so I’m confident that we will be able to feature right at the front as soon as the season gets underway.”
“It’s a real pleasure to welcome Lirim to our team”, said Sander Dorsman, team principal at MP Motorsport. “Lirim’s talent was obvious to us from the moment that he started winning in German Formula 4 back in 2017. We worked very well together in last week’s test, and I’m looking forward to a season that will hopefully see us challenge for wins. I’m sure he will do well in his debut season in Formula 2.”
We look forward to seeing him in action in 2021. Welcome to our F2 Bubble.
