MP Motorsport have announced that Felipe Drugovich will complete their 2022 driver line-up, re-joining the team with whom he enjoyed a successful rookie year in 2020.
Drugovich delivered three wins, four podiums and one pole during a highly promising first season in Formula 2 at MP Motorsport, before switching to UNI-Virtuosi for 2021.
He added four podiums to his tally with the British team, including two in the final round at Yas Marina, helping them to win the Teams’ title.
Joining rookie Clément Novalak at the Dutch side, the pair will appear together in MP colours for the first time at post-season testing on Thursday.
“I’m really delighted to reconnect with MP for my third season in FIA F2”, said Drugovich. “I have such wonderful memories of my debut season with them in 2020, starting off with a win in my very first F2 weekend and collecting two more victories after that. The team and I are eager to repeat that form in 2022, and then some more!”
Prior to F2, Drugovich raced in Formula 3 with Carlin, following a dominant campaign in Euroformula Open, where he won the title with 14 wins, 16 podiums and 10 poles.
The 21-year-old also won Spanish Formula 3 in 2018, with five wins, six podiums and three poles, as well as MRF Challenge Formula 2000 in the same year, with 10 wins, 13 podiums and two poles.
“It’s great news to have Felipe return to as the old nest, we’re really happy to welcome him back at MP”, said MP Motorsport team principal Sander Dorsman. “We gelled so nicely back in 2020, and with Felipe’s added experience I’m convinced we can do it all over again or even improve on our 2020 form.
“I’m also pleased that we have our line-up confirmed this early in the winter season. Having both Drugo and Clem on board so soon means that we can fully focus on the season ahead, and prepare ourselves as best we can.”
