Nissany will run for the team at post-season testing in Yas Marina on December 16-18.

“I’m extremely happy to continue with DAMS, we have become a family which has made me feel very confident and comfortable,” said Nissany. “I’m sure we will carry on with the amazing progress we have achieved so far, constantly pushing ourselves upwards.

“I’m really focused on continuing my development within the team throughout the new season and getting some solid results next year.”

Nissany has gained F1 experience during the season, running for Williams in FP1 at the Spain, France and Austria.

As well as his experience in both F1 and F2, Nissany has raced in several junior categories, including ADAC Formel Masters, European Formula 3 and Formula Renault 3.5.

DAMS Co-Team Owners, Gregory and Oliver Driot added: "We’re very happy to confirm Roy as part as our F2 line-up for next year, we have been able to build a strong relationship in our first year together.

“Both Roy and the team have their goals for the season to come, as we showed some very strong performances throughout 2021 but sometimes failed to materialise them into proper results.

“With two races per week instead of three, the new format will make it less unpredictable and it should help us transform our pace into consistent results. The three-day post-season test held in Abu Dhabi in the forthcoming days will be the kick-off for the preparation for next year and we are looking forward to it."
