Race winner Antonio Giovinazzi will return to Carlin’s FIA Formula 3 European team this season, for an attack on the championship in which he won two races last year. The Jagonya Ayam driver showed strong form towards the end of the season with seven podiums sealing him sixth in the championship standings.
Teamed with Jagonya Ayam team mates Sean Gelael and Tom Blomqvist last year, Giovinazzi was a regular points scorer and took race victories at Red Bull Ring and Nurburgring. Previous to racing in the FIA Formula European Championship, Giovinazzi was 2013 British F3 vice champion and formerly 2012 Formula Pilota China Champion.
Speaking about the season ahead, Giovinazzi said, “I’m very excited to have another season with Carlin in F3. We had a good season last year, we finished on a high with some very good results. I go into 2015 with the championship definitely the aim and it’s great to have the same team around me to do that. Thanks of course to Jagonya Ayam for their amazing support once again, without which this wouldn’t be possible.”
Trevor Carlin added, “Antonio should be seen as a real contender this season. He really matured as a driver last year and overcame some issues to finish the season on a high. We’re proud once again to be flying the colours of the Jagonya Ayam brand in Formula 3 and look forward to another season of racing winning success.”
