Marcus Armstrong

The Kiwi with a cool head on his shoulders. Not much fazes Marcus Armstrong, and filling the shoes of F2 Champion Nyck de Vries won’t be one of those things.

In F3 last season, PREMA teammates Robert Shwartzman and Jehan Daruvala notched their first wins in the opening round, while Armstrong had to wait for the fifth. The Kiwi wasn’t worried though and three podiums ensured he kept pace with the top two, but his maiden victory opened the floodgates and he truly came alive.

He won twice more in the remaining rounds, as well as a further podium finish, overtaking Daruvala for second in the process and helping PREMA to the Teams’ Championship.

With just one seat available at PREMA in F2, the Ferrari F1 junior has switched to 2019 Driver’s title-winning outfit ART Grand Prix. With the team’s Championship-winning knowledge and his form in the latter half of the campaign, Armstrong will expect to move out from the shadow of his former teammate, Shwartzman, and could be an unexpected title-challenger.
