Clement Novalak has his future secured for the rest of the 2021 season and also full-time in 2022 with MP Motorsport in FIA F2 championship.

Having finished third in the FIA F3 season with Trident, Novalak has his future secured for the rest of the 2021 season and also a full year in 2022. The Frenchman will replace Lirim Zendeli for the final two rounds in Jeddah and Abu Dhabi in the #12 car.

For 2022, he will race full-time with MP Motorsport, making him the first driver to be confirmed for next year. “I’m delighted to get my first taste of F2 as soon as at Jeddah and Yas Marina,” said Novalak. “This will only help me towards my ambitions for a first full season in F2 in 2022.

“I’m truly thankful to MP Motorsport for handing me this opportunity, and I fully intend to make the most of it. MP has been a race-winning outfit in F2 for the past two years, so I hope that teaming up with them will allow me to return to my winning ways. I can’t wait to get started.”

At the same time, MP Motorsport team manager, Sander Dorsman, added: “We are very happy to welcome Clement Novalak in our F2 line-up for 2022, and are especially excited to give him his first runs in a Formula 2 car in the six 2021 races still coming up.

“He pulled together a very strong season in F3, and especially his late run of form that took him up from sixth to third in the standings was extremely impressive. We are aiming to capitalize on that momentum by putting him in one of our F2 cars in the two remaining rounds on the Arabian peninsula. For next year, I’m sure he will be among the outstanding rookies of the year.”
