Danish racer rejoins the team for second F2 attempt
PREMA Racing is delighted to welcome Frederik Vesti back to the team for the 2023 FIA Formula 2 Championship. The 20-year-old Dane will be entering his second season in the series after a learning rookie year that already saw him break through to his maiden win.
Vesti started racing in his native Denmark before stepping up to the Italian and German Formula 4 championships. In 2019, he moved to PREMA and put up a dominant display in the Formula Regional European Championship with 13 wins and the driver title. In 2020 he graduated to FIA Formula 3, winning three races with the team.
Vesti will aim for a further step forward next year, and the team is looking forward to rebuilding a combination that led to so much success in the past. A junior driver for the Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS F1 Team, Vesti will rejoin PREMA for the series' post-season test at Yas Marina in Abu Dhabi.
Rene Rosin - Team Principal
“We are delighted to welcome Frederik back. He is a quick and hard-working driver, which we already had the chance to appreciate in 2019 and 2020. We are obviously looking forward to joining forces again and seeing what we will be able to achieve together next season. With his skills and the experience he has matured, we expect him to be a contender and we are determined to support him the best way we can.”
“To join Prema Racing for the 2023 Formula 2 season is great news for me. I have known Prema since 2019 when we won the Formula Regional European Championship together. Prema is an amazing place to be at and in my opinion, gives me the best opportunity to fight for the F2 title in 2023! I have big dreams and Prema is the team I believe that I can achieve those dreams with. There is no doubt that 2023 F2 is going to be incredibly close, but I will give my everything to be fast and consistent throughout the season.”
