Ralph Boschung has become the latest driver to take up a seat in the FIA Formula 2 championship, penning a deal with Trident.

The 21-year-old has spent the last two seasons in the series, racing with Campos and MP Motorsport.

The Swiss driver's best result in the F2 category is a seventh-place finish. Boschung will line-up alongside GP3 graduate Giuliano Alesi for the upcoming campaign.

"I am thrilled to join the Trident family for the 2019 FIA Formula 2 Championship," Boschung said.

"I have been in contact with them for several years and I am delighted that the conditions to work together are finally in place.

"The team is high-level, both from a technical and human point of view, and I am sure that there will be the needed chemistry for a top season. I cannot wait to get back on track.

"I thank Team Trident for the trust placed in me, and my partners and sponsors as they enabled me to start this new and important chapter of my career.”

Trident Team Manager Giacomo Ricci added: "I am extremely proud to announce that Ralph Boschung will wear the colours of Team Trident for the 2019 season of the FIA Formula 2 Championship, a category that is increasingly regarded as the only benchmark for drivers who have the ambition of making their way to Formula 1.

"In 2018, three drivers were directly promoted from F2 to F1, reflecting how the motorsport ladder is getting more and more effective. Ralph is a driver of great quality and undisputed talent.

"Together with Giuliano Alesi, he will form a complementary line-up with high potential. Never like today, I am waiting for the engines to start and to begin a new and exciting season."
