Mercedes’ junior driver Frederik Vesti will participate in the 2022 Formula 2 Championship with Lewis Hamilton and George Russell‘s old team ART Grand Prix.

Mercedes junior Frederick Vesti has been competing in Formula 3 for the past two years, finishing fourth on both occasions.

In 2022, however, he is moving up to Formula 2 with ART Grand Prix, a team that both Lewis Hamilton and George Russell had driven for in the past. Hamilton claimed the title with the team in 2006, while Russell did the same in 2018.

“To sign my FIA Formula 2 contract with ART Grand Prix is a big thing for me,” Vesti said.
