Virtuosi Racing has announced its driver line-up for the 2023 FIA Formula 2 season, with Jack Doohan returning and Amaury Cordeel joining him at the team.

The Australian driver embarks on his second campaign with Virtuosi after achieving three victories this season, including a stand-out weekend at Spa-Francorchamps. Doohan ended the Sprint Race on the podium in P2 before going on to claim the Feature Race win on Sunday. He was also prolific in Qualifying, taking three pole positions across the season as well as a further three podiums in 2022.

“I’m thrilled to be continuing with Virtuosi Racing for my second year in Formula 2,” Doohan said of his re-signing. “After a strong first season together, I couldn’t be happier to be going into 2023 with the same great team around me. I can’t wait to get redemption from this season.”

Cordeel joins Virtuosi on the back of a rookie campaign in F2 that ended with an improvement in form. The Belgian driver returned from the summer break and put together his most consistent run to date, scoring four times in the final six races. It included a season-best weekend during the finale at Yas Marina, finishing 5th in the Sprint and 6th in the Feature Race.

“I’m very happy to say I will be driving with virtuosi in F2 next year,” Cordeel said. “It is clear that Virtuosi is among the top teams which will only make my personal growth better. I already noticed with the three-day test in Abu Dhabi that they support me insanely well. The second half of last season is very promising for next year. I am sure that together with them I can achieve my future dreams. Really thankful for this opportunity.”

Virtuosi team boss Andy Roche said that he was looking forward to seeing how the line-up would compete in 2023.

“We’re delighted to be sticking with Jack for 2023. Jack enjoyed a brilliant rookie season with us and showed obvious potential for more. Together, we will be working hard to ensure he achieves that.

“Amaury's results improved over his rookie year and we’ll be looking to work with him to improve further in 2023. Amaury settled into our car well during the Abu Dhabi post-season test and we’re looking forward to getting to it in 2023.”
