Prema confirms Arthur Leclerc
Prema Racing has confirmed Arthur Leclerc for a second FIA Formula 3 Championship season in 2022. The 21-year-old Monegasque racer joined the Italian squad in 2020, posting multiple wins in the Formula Regional European Championship. In 2021 he graduated to FIA F3 and secured his maiden win in the second round at Le Castellet and then at Zandvoort. He also delivered a pole position for the Hungaroring Feature Race.
In 2022, FIA F3 will revert to a similar format to the one used until 2020, with two races per weekend. Like for all the 2021 rookie class, Leclerc will have to adapt to a new weekend schedule for him as he looks to become one of the leading contenders of the series. Leclerc, the younger brother of Scuderia Ferrari F1 driver Charles Leclerc, will once again have the support of the Ferrari Driver Academy program.
