Aitken secures Formula 2 step with ART GP

15 January 2018 – Renault junior driver Jack Aitken will graduate to Formula 2 with ART Grand Prix this season, the French team has confirmed.

Aitken finished runner-up to Mercedes protégé George Russell in GP3 last season, taking a solitary victory at the Hungaroring.

Aitken sampled Formula 2 machinery with ART in the post-season gathering at the Yas Marina Circuit and will now duly step up to the secondary division this year.

"I am delighted to sign with ART GP for another year, taking on the challenge of F2," said Aitken.

"I have made a lot of friends here, and I have the confidence in them and myself that we can have an even better season together this year.

"We will aim high, and push hard. Rookie or not, I want to be challenging at the front like always."

Russell is expected to partner Aitken at ART this year, with an announcement due at a later date.
