F2 champion Drugovich included in Aston Martin F1 team development program

Brazilian Felipe Drugovich was crowned Formula 2 champion. An immediate switch to Formula 1 and a corresponding race seat was not possible for Drugovich, but he will become a reserve driver with the Aston Martin F1 team.

Drugovich will become the first driver to be included in the newly established ‘AMF1 Driver Development Programme’, in addition to becoming a reserve driver with the team.

“I am extremely proud to inaugurate the ‘AMF1 Driver Development Programme’,” said Lawrence Stroll. “I strongly believe in rewarding young talent and this is a great way to help develop the next generation of race drivers.”

“We have followed Felipe’s path to success in Formula 2 this year and we want to give him all the skills and necessary experience so that he can take the next step.”

“It would be great and a credit to him if he could become an F1 driver in the future, he would join great Brazilian drivers like Emerson Fittipaldi and Ayrton Senna.”
