Enzo Fittipaldi will drive for Charouz Racing System for the rest of the Formula 2 season. This was announced by the team. He will replace David Beckmann.

Formula 3 was the home for the grandson of two-time Formula 1 World Champion Emerson Fittipaldi for the first half of the season, now he will try it in a higher formula class.

The highlight of the season in F3 for him was a podium in Hungary when he took P2.

He will now drive for Charouz Racing System alongside Guilherme Samaia, replacing David Beckmann. His debut will be at Monza, which will take place from September 10-12.

“I am extremely happy to be making my debut in the FIA Formula 2 championship. I really want to thank Charouz Racing System and all my sponsors for this opportunity.

“We had a very solid first part of the F3 season together and I am looking forward to the next chapter. Monza will be my first time in an F2 car and I’m very excited.

“I will have a huge learning curve ahead with a 30min practice and then straight to qualifying but nonetheless I can’t wait to get in the car at Monza.

“The goal will be to gain as much experience as possible to get me more prepared for the last F2 rounds.”

The Charouz Racing System team is currently in P9 of the championship with 25 points (all scored by Beckmann). Antonin Charouz, the team owner, is also pleased with the new addition.

“He did a great job with our F3 team in the first half of this season, proving to be a talented and professional driver, with a great desire to improve and grow at every race.

“As a team, we are very pleased to be able to give him the chance to make his debut in F2, where I am sure he will do just as well. The second part of the season will be challenging, but we know we have everything we need to aim for important results”.
