Robert Schwartzman goes to Formula 2November 28, 2019
Formula 3 champion, pilot of the SMP Racing program Robert Schwartzman will spend the 2020 season in Formula 2 – as part of the PREMA Racing team along with Mick Schumacher.
Last season, the 20-year-old student of the Ferrari Academy won three victories, ten times went up to the podium and won the league title at the stage in Sochi.
Boris Rotenberg, founder and head of the SMP Racing program: “Robert made a new step in his career, now he is a Formula 2 driver. This is a new challenge for a talented athlete, and we at SMP Racing are confident that he will manage. Last season, Robert climbed the podium ten times, scoring three victories and won the championship title in Formula 3. He is purposeful, hardworking and in a good way greedy for victories. We wish him great success in the upcoming season. ”
Rene Rosin, Head of PREMA Racing Team: “We are pleased to confirm the competitive composition of the team for the Formula 2 season in 2020. Schwartzman moves to Formula 2 after a successful season in Formula 3. We are confident that his skills will allow you to quickly get used to it and immediately achieve high results.
Our other pilot, Mick Schumacher, had already spent a year in this championship and won his first victory. In addition, it has outstanding potential, which will certainly be realized.
We believe that we can be strong rivals to other teams and we can’t wait to start preparing for 2020. We are especially proud that the pilots grow in our family until the very last steps before Formula 1 “.
Robert Schwartzman: “I am very happy to go to Formula 2, the last and very important step before Formula 1. At the same time, I am pleased to continue to play for PREMA Racing. Next year will be my third consecutive season with this team. We know each other well, we have excellent mutual understanding. Our goal is to win the championship, as we did this year.
Even with a new machine, with a large number of unfamiliar and strong competitors, you can be in the front row. I am sure we have everything to repeat the achievement in 2020. I will do my best to learn how to work with tires as quickly as possible, so that we are ahead from the very beginning. I want to thank Ferrari, the Ferrari Academy and SMP Racing for their help and support. I hope to meet their expectations, achieving excellent results. ”
