Arthur Leclerc is set to make his Formula 2 debut with DAMS in the 2023 campaign.
Leclerc competed in Formula 3 with PREMA Racing in 2022. The Monegasque ended the season in P6 in the standings with 114 points in his tally. He also won the Formula Regional Asian Championship.
In 2023, Leclerc will step up to F2. The Ferrari Driver Academy member will join DAMS.
“I’m delighted to be making the step up to Formula 2 with DAMS in 2023. They’re a very successful team that has achieved great results in the championship, and I hope I can be a part of that and continue the team’s success,” Leclerc reacted to the announcement.
“Charles Pic [DAMS team owner] has done an amazing job to help the team back to winning ways throughout the season, and I’m aiming to keep that going next year. We have a lot of work to do before the start of the new campaign in Bahrain in March, and I’m really looking forward to getting started in the post-season test in Abu Dhabi!”
“It’s great to have Arthur join DAMS for 2023. We’ve seen his talent and skill throughout his career so far, and he’s shown in the last two years in F3 that he’s capable of challenging for victories,” Pic said.
“We’re excited to have him in the car for the post-season test in Abu Dhabi, preparing for next season. The team is aiming for a strong campaign in 2023, and we have no doubt that the addition of Arthur will help us towards our goals.”
