William Buller will make a return to 3.5-litre machinery this weekend at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza as he joins RP Motorsport in Formula V8 3.5.

The twenty-four-year-old becomes Vitor Baptista’s fourth team-mate of 2016 after Johnny Cecotto Jr, Artur Janosz and Marco Bonanomi, and rejoins the championship he last raced in back in 2014 when it was named Formula Renault 3.5.

Back then he raced for Arden Motorsport and clinched a podium finish at Jerez, and has been plying his trade in the Japanese-based Super Formula championship since, although he did make a one-off appearance for Carlin in the FIA European Formula 3 Championship earlier this season at the Norisring.

“I am very happy to join Formula V8 3.5 grid at Monza,” said Buller on “I want to get behind the wheel and start rolling with the Formula Renault 3.5.

“This is a very competitive series and will be a great challenge for me”.

RP Motorsport team principal Fabio Pampado is delighted to welcome the experience of Buller to the team for Monza, and feels he will benefit them greatly this weekend.

“We are very excited to have William at Monza, is a very experienced driver who certainly will help us a lot,” said Pampado. “We will do our best to help him feel comfortable with the car and with the team”.
