Charouz Racing System: Bahrain Formula 2 Preview

Charouz Racing System will get its 2018 FIA Formula 2 Championship campaign underway in Bahrain this weekend (6-8 April) and the team is ready for the challenge that awaits.

With a pair of successful pre-season tests complete, the Czech-based squad will get its first taste of official F2 competition on Friday when drivers, Louis Delétraz and Antonio Fuoco take to the Sakhir International Circuit in their Ferrari Driver Academy-liveried cars for free practice and a 30-minute qualifying session.

The team, which has graduated to Formula One’s main feeder series after dominating the Formula V8 3.5 championship in 2017, will then face a 32-lap feature race on Saturday afternoon, followed by a 23-lap sprint race on Sunday.
