Amaury Cordeel will enter this year’s Formula 2 championship as a rookie for series newcomers Van Amersfoort Racing.
Prior to joining the F3 grid, Cordeel won the 2018 Spanish Formula 4 title before racing in the Formula Regional Asian Winter series and then three races in the primary Formula Regional Asian series. He drove for Fernando Alonso’s team in the Formula Renault Eurocup in 2020, finishing 15th in the championship.
Cordeel’s best result in last year’s Formula 3 campaign was an 11th place finish at the Red Bull Ring. Having started on reverse-grid pole for the opening race at Zandvoort, a clash with Alexander Smolyar saw him fall to the back of the field from his best starting position of the season.
With the announcement of Cordeel moving up to series for 2022, only four spaces on the grid for this season remain to be filled. One seat at ART alongside Theo Pourchaire, a seat with Campos, the second seat at Charouz and the second seat at the Trident team.
