Juan Manuel Correa has been handed a role as an Alfa Romeo development driver for the 2019 season.

Correa will compete in the upcoming FIA Formula 2 championship this year as part of the Sauber Junior Team, racing for Charouz Racing System. The 2019 campaign kicks off next weekend in Bahrain, supporting the Formula 1 Grand Prix.

“To have received this opportunity, and to be a part of such an iconic team and brand in motorsports, Formula 1 in particular, is a privilege for any driver,” said Correa.

“I will do my best to honour the opportunity I have been given and want to thank Fred [Vasseur] and the entire Alfa Romero Racing Team for having me. I’m excited for what the future has to hold.”

Correa joins Colombian Tatiana Calderon as an Alfa Romeo development driver for the upcoming year.

Alfa Romeo team principal said: “We are happy to announce that Juan Manuel has joined Alfa Romeo Racing.

"Juan Manuel will be taking on a new challenge with our team as our Development Driver and we look forward to further advancing his skills in support of his progress as a racing driver.”
