Baku, January 12, AZERTAC
Arthur Leclerc will stay with Prema Racing for his second season in FIA Formula 3 in 2022, and will also continue his association with the Ferrari Drivers' Academy, according to Motorsport.com.
The Monegasque driver took two wins in his rookie season in 2021 at Monza and Zandvoort, as well as pole and P2 in Budapest, finishing 10th in the standings with 79 points.
Leclerc said: "I am extremely happy to continue the work we started with PREMA Racing in the 2021 FIA Formula 3 Championship.
"I think we did a good job last year, and 2022 will be a good opportunity to put together everything we have learned so far. I cannot wait for the season to start."
Team Principal Rene Rosin added: "It is great to continue our collaboration with Arthur. I am sure that he will carry on the progress we saw in 2021 when he showed he had the potential to be a frontrunner.
"Last year's experience with the challenging three-race weekends will definitely help him navigate the events with a great focus, which will surely benefit the whole team."
Speaking after the conclusion of the 2021 season, Rosin said it had been a "good season" but said they had "lost a few points sometimes that compromise the title."
