Christian Lungaard will make his debut in the FIA Formula 2 championship next weekend in Abu Dhabi, competing with Trident.

The Dane contested the full FIA Formula 3 season in 2019 with ART, finishing sixth in the championship with one race win to his name, coming in Hungary.

Lundgaard will race alongside Guiliano Alesi for the event, and becomes the fourth driver this year to race the #21 Trident entry.

“I’m proud and excited to make my F2 debut and would like to thank Renault Sport Academy, Trident and my partners for their faith in me," Lundgaard said.

"Stepping into a championship at the last round is going to be a big challenge, but it will be great experience.

"F2 is a big step up, the racing is always hard-fought and you need to think strategically on how to turn the races to your advantage – I’m looking forward to getting started and seeing what we can do.”

Giacomo Ricci, Team Manager, added: "We are very happy to welcome a talented young driver like Christian Lundgaard, as he is proving to be one of the most interesting prospects in Motorsport.

"This year, as a rookie, Christian delivered a great season in the FIA Formula 3 Championship: I was impressed by his skills every time I saw him on track.

"For Team Trident, to have Christian on board represents an excellent opportunity to take home good results and contribute to his growth. We will do our best to support him on his Formula 2 debut, on a track on which he has never raced on".
