Jake Hughes will drive for Van Amersfoort Racing during the 2022 Formula 2 season, he announced on Monday.
Hughes raced with HWA in the 2020 and 2021 seasons as a replacement for Giuliano Alesi and Jack Aitken respectively. He also gave the team their best result to date (4th place) in the series.
After testing with VAR during the post-season in Abu Dhabi, Hughes now confirmed he will race with the team full-time for the 2022 season.
“I’m overly excited to be racing with VAR in 2022. During the post-season test at Abu Dhabi it became clear to me that VAR takes this new challenge extremely seriously,” he said. “We are very much on the same level when it comes to vision and drive for success, making it a very pleasant environment to work in.
I’m just very thankful to the team for putting their trust in me and providing me the opportunity to work together. The F2 car is incredible to drive, and I look very much forward to competing in it for the full season. It will be a long and tough stretch, but I am eager to kick off the season soon in Bahrain!”
