Indian Formula 1 hopeful, bags a race seat at formula 2 championship with Trident Motorsport


The 20-year-old driver moves from GP3 series, where he was driving for Swiss squad Jenzer Motorsport, had a great season last year with a win and a third-place finish. 

"I’m very excited to be competing in the FIA Formula 2 championship with Trident Motorsport," said Maini. "I felt we were quite competitive during the post-season test and given that the series is using all new cars for the coming season, I’m quite excited for the year ahead. Trident is a very strong team and I’m sure if we work hard we’ll be in for some strong results during the course of the season.”

Maini participated in the post-season F2 tests as a rookie, topping two out of the six sessions. Along with racing for Trident, Arjun will continue in his role as the Haas F1 Team’s development driver, attending races and tests throughout the year in addition to undertaking a simulator programme. Fellow Haas F1 development driver Santino Ferrucci will be his team-mate at Trident. Arjun will continue with his role as development driver for Haas F1 Team.

Maini is second Indian driver to bag a seat in the series after Karun Chandhok, who raced in the championship from 2007-2009 when the races were run under GP2 banner
