Richard Verschoor will drive for Charouz Racing System at the Formula 2 season finale in Abu Dhabi.
The 20-year-old returns to F2 as Charouz Racing System has announced that Verschoor will join the team this weekend at the Yas Marina Circuit. Verschoor will replace Enzo Fittipaldi, who has broken his heel in a big crash during the Feature Race in Jeddah.
“First of all, I would like to express my thoughts to Enzo. I hope he will recover well and very soon,” the Dutchman said.
“I’m happy to be back racing and excited to do so with Charouz Racing System, hopefully, we can end this season together on a high.”
The team owner Antonin Charouz also spoke about the announcement: “On the eve of the last round of the year, we have been forced to change our line-up, as a consequence of Enzo’s injury in Jeddah. On behalf of the whole team, I wish him again a speedy recovery, hoping to see him return on track as soon as possible.”
“At the same time, I’m glad Richard will join our squad for this weekend in Abu Dhabi. We saw him racing during this year in the FIA Formula 2 Championship and I have to say he delivered some very interesting performances.”
Verschoor drove for MP Motorsport in the 2021 F2 campaign. He won the Sprint Race 2 at Silverstone and scored 55 points.
