What the future holds for two Red Bull juniors fighting in the F2 battleground

By:

Despite having two talented drivers, albeit at very different stages of their careers, Prema Racing has had mixed fortunes in FIA Formula 2 this year. Both drivers told Autosport how they rate their seasons so far – and their next steps beyond 2022

Prema Racing was flying high at the end of 2021. Finishing top of the teams’ standings, 156.5 points clear of second-placed Virtuosi, and with Oscar Piastri and Robert Shwartzman taking a 1-2 in the drivers’ championship, the team sealed its second double in as many years.

Entering 2022, the squad secured a strong Red Bull junior driver pairing, with third-year driver Jehan Daruvala joining from Carlin and reigning FIA Formula 3 champion Dennis Hauger making the step up the feeder series ladder with the team.
