Two-times Macau Grand Prix winner Dan Ticktum will rejoin his former team Carlin for a second full season in Formula 2 this year.

After making his F2 debut with two races for HWA in 2018, Ticktum won for DAMS at Silverstone last year. He also finished first on the road at Monza, before being disqualified as his car ran too low on fuel to give a sample. He ended the year 11th in the championship.

Ticktum is rejoining Carlin, who he previously raced for in Formula 3, and drove for in last year’s post-season test in Bahrain.

“We had three productive test days in Bahrain and I already feel part of the team,” said Ticktum. “We have worked really well together and already know what our goals are for pre-season testing.

“Carlin proved they had a race winning car towards the end of last season and I really want to capitalise on that and mount a strong championship challenge from the start. I can’t wait to get the season underway.”

Tteam owner Trevor Carlin said “we’ve known Dan a long time and worked with him briefly in Macau a couple of years ago as well as in the post-season F2 tests in December.

“He’s very quick and a great racer and we are excited to see his true potential with us this year. We’ll be working with him to really develop everything he’s learnt so far with the aim to mount a very consistent and measured championship attack.”

Ticktum’s team mate at Carlin will be Jehan Daruvala. Testing for the new Formula 2 season will begin in Bahrain on March 8th.
