It has been announced he’s leaving the Ferrari Driver Academy and the Formula 2 Championship this season, relocating his racing career to Asia.
The news comes after his private testing with Ferrari earlier today, where he drove the SF71-H. He has been a Ferrari junior since 2016.
Talking about today’s private outing, Alesi said:
“I’d like to thank Ferrari and the FDA for this fantastic opportunity today.
“To be able to get in the cockpit of the SF71-H was incredibly exciting as was driving the car on track with my father watching and sporting the same race number he used.”
We’ll update this story accordingly as statements from both sides arrive.
