Amaury Cordeel will drive for Van Amersfoort Racing in the upcoming Formula 2 season, confirmed on Thursday.
Another seat in the 2022 Formula 2 grid has been taken. Cordeel will make his debut in the championship alongside the new team Van Amersfoort Racing.
In the 2021 season, the Belgian competed in Formula 3 with Campos Racing. He had not scored any points and finished 23rd in the drivers’ standings.
“I am extremely excited to make this step up to F2. I got to know the car during the post-season test at Abu Dhabi and it is an impressive drive. The power increase in comparison to F3 is obviously very noticeable, but I felt comfortable behind the wheel. I am very well aware that the season ahead will be a challenging one and I will face a steep learning curve,” Cordeel said.
“However, having Van Amersfoort Racing as my team to rely on gives me great confidence. I am thankful for the trust they’ve put in me and I look very much forward to being part of their FIA F2 debut. The level of dedication and professionalism shown during the test at Yas Marina was impressive, the least said.
“I will put my learnings from F3 to best use and together with the support of VAR, will build up from there onwards. I have been using the off-season to get in optimum shape, both physically and mentally, not to mention the endless hours I’ve spent in the simulator. I feel ready!”
