Enzo Fittipaldi and Zane Maloney will be teammates at Carlin in the 2023 Formula 2 season, announced on Wednesday.

Fittipaldi, who joined the Red Bull Junior Team at the end of 2022, finished 8th in the Formula 2 standings last year. He had 6 podium finishes and scored 126 points driving the Charouz Racing System car.

Maloney, also a member of the Red Bull Junior Team, was the runner-up in Formula 3 last season. He won 3 races, took 2 pole positions, and finished on the podium 4 times. It will be Maloney’s first full-time season in F2. He made his F2 debut in last year’s season finale in Abu Dhabi with Trident.

“I’m extremely excited to be joining Carlin and as well to be part of the Red Bull family for the 2023 season. It’s an amazing opportunity and I can’t wait for the first race weekend in Bahrain,” Fittipaldi commented on the announcement.

“Joining Carlin in F2 and to do so as part of the Red Bull Junior Team is a fantastic opportunity after my first year of F3 last season. I’m rejoining a team I know extremely well and have won a championship with before in F4,” Maloney said.

“I’ve seen first-hand how strong the team is in F2 and we had a great test together last year in Abu Dhabi. To embark on this journey in Red Bull colors is a dream come true, and I’m incredibly excited to get the season underway in Bahrain next month.”

“As a team boss, Enzo and Zane are a dream pairing with both experience and potential. Enzo was a driver who really caught our attention last year and will be looking to build on the strong results he had in his rookie season,” team principal Trevor Carlin added.

“Zane was incredibly impressive in his rookie season of F3, and it’s fantastic to welcome him back to Carlin. He certainly needs to focus on building his experience in the first half of the season, but I think by the mid-way point we’ll start to see some real flashes of potential.”
