Austrian Rene Binder To Contest F2 Rounds On Home Soil

1 Mins read

Rene Binder will make his FIA Formula Two Championship debut at his home round of the season at the Red Bull Ring in Austria next weekend.

The 19-year-old has been racing in his second season of the German F3 Cup this year, currently lying eighth in the standings having scored one podium finish.

“I'm really excited about racing at the Red Bull Ring,” said Binder. “I competed there earlier this month which went well and it means I already know the track which I think will be a big help to me.

“I've not really had much chance to get to grips with the car but from the time I've had it felt nice to drive and is very different to anything else I've raced. At the moment I'm just competing in Austrian rounds but if things go well F2 is certainly a possibility for me next year.”

Series boss Jonathan Palmer said: “We're very pleased to be welcoming Rene to F2 this weekend. Getting to grips with the 500bhp F2 car will certainly be a challenge but his impressive showing in the F3 Cup should hopefully help him be on the pace early on and even challenge for top ten results as the weekend progresses.”
