The 2018 season marks a new beginning for the FIA Formula 2 Championship.
Our drivers, Louis Delétraz and Antonio Fuoco, will both race the 2018-spec FIA Formula 2 Championship car this season.
We are proud to be one of the teams that will race the brand-new chassis and engine package that is expected to produce plenty of exciting racing and allow our talented drivers to shine.
Our new car will form the basis of the F2 category for the next three years and has been designed to mirror the latest updates in F1 design.
The chassis has been constructed by Italian company Dallara and the new 3.4-litre, V6 turbocharged engine has been produced by French builder Mecachrome.
Our 2018 F2 car features various safety updates. These include a new Virtual Safety Car System (VSC), Drag Reduction System (DRS), updated electronics and the new Halo system which is designed to give further protection to the cockpit area.
As a car that is bigger, heavier, creates more downforce and is powered by a turbocharged engine as opposed to a normally-aspirated variant in the past, the latest F2 car is a different proposition for the drivers in 2018.
Our driver Antonio Fuoco said: “The car is a bit harder to drive and the power is delivered in a different way to before. It’s a new challenge and I’ve done some new training to make sure I’m physically prepared for it.”
