Lancaster Joins F2 Grid Ahead Of Magny-Cours

1 Mins read

Jon Lancaster has joined the FIA Formula Two Championship ahead of the second round of the season at Magny-Cours in France this weekend.

The 22-year-old Briton has competed in the Formula Renault 3.5 Series for the past two seasons, winning once. He was also a race winner in the Formula 3 Euro Series prior to that.

The Leeds racer got his first taste of the F2 car at today's test session at Magny-Cours.

“I'd been considering a move to F2 for a while although we've had to rush to make it in time for the Magny-Cours test,” said Lancaster.

“I only arrived at the track this morning at 6am so I'm just trying to get up to speed. I have raced at the French circuit before and have done a shakedown in the car at Bedford so that should help this weekend. So far I really like the car and am getting used to the specific driving style.”

Despite missing the opening round at Silverstone, Lancaster is optimistic in his aims. “I only have one goal for this season and that's simply to win and pick up the Williams F1 test.”

Series director Jonathan Palmer commented: “We're delighted that Jon has chosen to race in F2 this year. He is already a very accomplished driver with plenty of experience behind him and despite being unfamiliar with the car, I have no doubt he'll be a frontrunner right from the start.”
