Tatiana Calderon will race in the FIA Formula 2 championship this season for BWT Arden, the team has confirmed.
Calderon has spent the last three years in the GP3 Series, having spent the three years prior to that in the European Formula 3 championship. In 2019, she will partner Anthoine Hubert, who also graduates from the GP3 championship.
Calderon tested at the post-season Formula 2 test last year in Abu Dhabi, a month after making her first outing in a Formula 1 car, taking part in a filming day with Alfa Romeo.
“I’m very excited to compete in the FIA F2 Championship with Team BWT Arden in technical partnership with HWA Racelab," she sai. "It is a new challenge in my career and a step closer to my ultimate goal: Formula 1.
"I want to thank my sponsors Coldeportes and Escudería Telmex-Claro for making it happen and to my family for always giving me their unconditional support. I’m sure we will achieve great things together. I can’t wait for testing to start next week!"
BWT Arden team principal & CEO Garry Horner added: “We are delighted to welcome Tatiana back into the Arden fold. Her recent testing results in Formula 2 have been very impressive and I am certain she will be a strong teammate alongside Anthoine.”
