Ferrari Formula 1 junior and Prema Racing FIA Formula 3 driver Marcus Armstrong has joined the All Road Management stable of Nicolas Todt.
The 18-year-old New Zealander, who has impressed in testing for the new series which replaces the GP3 Series and European Formula 3, joins Todt's group that is spearheaded by Ferrari Formula 1 star Charles Leclerc.
Armstrong spent much of 2018 vying for the European F3 Championship crown with Prema, only to be one of those overshadowed in the latter stages of the season by eventual champion Mick Schumacher, who himself was reported in January to be joining ARM.
Other ARM recruits include F1 veteran-turned-Formula E rookie Felipe Massa, Toro Rosso F1 returnee Daniil Kvyat, Ferrari World Endurance star James Calado, three-time World Touring Car champion Jose Maria Lopez, and reigning French Formula 4 champion and Renault F1 junior Caio Collet.
"I'm very excited to start working with Marcus, who is an extremely intelligent and talented driver," said Todt.
"I have been already watching him very closely [since] he was racing in F4.
"He has the great opportunity to be a member of the Ferrari Driver Academy [which Armstrong has actually been part of since 2017, when he won the Italian F4 crown], and I will try to help him as much as I can to ensure that he ticks all the boxes to achieve his dream to become a Formula 1 driver."
"Some of my heroes have come up through ARM," said Armstrong. "I already feel very integrated in the family and I hope it's the start of a successful relationship."
