With just a week left for testing in Bahrain, the Trident team today announced the name of the driver who will complete the line-up for the 2022 Formula 2 season.
The Italian team has chosen to combine rookie Calan Williams with a decidedly interesting prospect such as Richard Verschoor.
The Dutchman, born in 2000, had made his debut last year in the cadet category with the MP Motorsport team, also obtaining a success at Silverstone, but it is in Formula 3 that he stood out in particular by winning the victory in Macau in 2019.
With this pair of drivers of undoubted value, the Trident team will be able to try to get back on top in Formula 2 and return to fight regularly for the points.
“I am very proud and motivated to be able to compete in the new season of the FIA Formula 2 Championship in the colors of a professional and winning team like Trident Motorsport,” said Verschoor.
“I think there are all the conditions to have a good season and reach important goals. I can’t wait to get out on track, I will give my maximum effort to make the most of this opportunity ”.
Giacomo Ricci, team manager of the Italian team, welcomed the Dutch driver to the team.
“We are proud to be able to welcome in our team a driver of undisputed quality like Richard Verschoor and motivated to work with a fast and experienced guy, who has already shown in the past that he can achieve important goals”.
“Alongside Calan Williams, Verschoor composes a solid and promising line-up. Our riders will be able to push each other, constantly raising their level and setting the conditions to do well. We can’t wait to get on track and face the new season with this renewed line-up! ”.
