20-year-old Australian Calan Williams will drive for Trident Motorsport in the FIA Formula 2 Championship test session scheduled for December 16th to 18th at Yas Marina.
Trident Motorsport is delighted to announce that Australian racer Calan Williams will enter the upcoming FIA Formula 2 Championship post-season test under the team's banner. The session is scheduled for the 16th, 17th, and 18th of December at Yas Marina in Abu Dhabi.
The Perth native will be driving an F2 car for the first time after completing his second FIA Formula 3 Championship season. Williams showed brilliant promise as his team's leading driver and cruised to a podium finish in one of the most intense races of the season at Circuit Paul Ricard.
Trident Motorsport is proud to welcome a talented racer and is confident that he will carry on excellent work over the three days. The technical staff will provide him with the best possible support to help him merge with the team's work pace and express his full potential.
Giacomo Ricci, Team Manager:
“Calan has great potential, and we are very pleased to be working together for the testing in Abu Dhabi. We know he has more to express as he has all the characteristics of a driver to achieve remarkable results. During the weeks of preparation, we were able to create a great feeling with the driver, in addition to a great working pace that I am sure will lead to very good results.”
Calan Williams, driver:
“I can’t wait to have my first taste of Formula 2 with such a professional team in Trident Motorsport. They’ve had great results this year, with their highlight being winning the teams’ championship in Formula 3. I’ve been preparing physically for the testing for the past few months.The step up to a car which is heavier, and corners and accelerates faster than anything I’ve ever experienced before will push me even further, so I need to be ready. I’m sure the three-day program will also be intense, so I’ll have my endurance tested as well. The Formula 3 season may have finished, but my training and preparation definitely hasn’t. I had a couple days off, before getting straight back into focusing on the test.”
