Matsushita switches to MP
Nobuharu Matsushita returns to the FIA Formula 2 Championship, having signed to drive for Dutch team MP Motorsport.
The 26-year-old Japanese driver teams up at MP for 2020 with series rookie Felipe Drugovich. Through his F2 career thus far, Matsushita has bagged a total of six wins and 14 podiums to rank himself among the most successful FIA F2 drivers of past seasons.
“I’m excited to join MP for a fresh assault on the FIA F2 Championship”, said Matsushita, “I’m convinced that together we will be able to create a package that will surprise all our rivals on the grid. Also, I hope that Felipe’s raw speed will spur me on to extract the best from myself in my efforts to add more victories to my FIA F2 win tally.”
“It’s great news that Nobu will be part of our team in 2020”, said MP Motorsport’s team manager Sander Dorsman, “In the past seasons you could always count on him being up there fighting for the points and the wins, and I’m certain that his experience will help the team thrive in its search for success. He’s won in every F2 season that he competed in and, of course, I’m hoping for this trend to continue in 2020! Also, Nobu will be a formidable yardstick for Felipe going into his debut season in FIA F2.”
