Trident have retained Roman Stanek for the 2024 Formula 2 season, announcing that their partnership with the 19-year-old driver is set to continue for a third consecutive campaign.

Stanek first raced with Trident back in 2022 when he finished fifth in his second season of FIA Formula 3, scoring one victory and pole position along with his two fastest laps and four podiums.

He then made the step up to Formula 2 with the team last year and wound-up 18th in the Championship after scoring 15 points.

Looking ahead to his second season in the Championship, Trident’s Team Manager Giacomo Ricci is certain that last years’ experience will only help Stanek have an improved 2024 campaign.

"We are delighted to continue our collaboration with Roman Stanek, who has been part of our family for a long time and was able to provide winning results in the past,” said Ricci.

“We are certain that all the ingredients are there to do well and achieve increasingly ambitious goals together. The experience acquired in 2023 will prove pivotal to start the new season with the best conditions and maximum determination.”

Stanek’s return completes Trident’s 2024 line-up with the team having already announced that they had reunited with Dutchman Richard Verschoor.
