DAMS announces Nicholas Latifi for 2019 FIA Formula 2 Championship

DAMS has announced that Nicholas Latifi will return to the team for the 2019 FIA Formula 2 Championship, as he looks to mount a title challenge.
 
The French squad enjoyed another strong campaign in the main Formula 1 feeder series, and were in contention for both titles at the Abu Dhabi finale, before finishing third in the teams’ and drivers’ standings with Alexander Albon, who will drive for Toro Rosso in F1 next season.
 
Five victories, three pole positions and 11 podiums further confirmed DAMS as one of the top teams in F2, and for 2019 Jean-Paul Driot’s squad is aiming for championship victory.
 
Latifi returns to the squad, after a strong end to the season in which he took victory at Spa-Francorchamps, as well as podiums in Baku and Sochi. The Canadian’s performances with DAMS earned him a call-up to an F1 reserve driver role at Williams for 2019.
 
He will be in action with DAMS for the pre-season tests at Jerez (26-28 February) and Barcelona (5-7 March), before the season officially gets underway in Bahrain (29-31 March).
