1 Mins read

Frenchman Brandon Maisano has left Prema Powerteam in the middle of the current weekend of the FIA European Formula 3 Championship at the Red Bull Ring.

Maisano had joined the European Formula 3 part of Prema this season having revitalised his career in 2014 by having a strong campaign in the Italian Formula 4 championship, but has struggled for results this season compared to his team-mates.

Jake Dennis and Felix Rosenqvist finished first and second in race one on Saturday morning, while Lance Stroll was fourth and the rookie winner in the race, while Maisano finished down in twenty-sixth.

The team have announced that he will not be returning to the team, with Prema running three cars for the remainder of the weekend in Austria.

“We are saddened for the end of the long-time relationship with Brandon, who scored brilliant results with us in the Italian Formula 3 Championship and in the Italian Formula 4 series last year,” said team boss Rene Roisin.

“I wish Brendon a successful future in his next career endeavours.”
