Seventeen year old Jonny and Red Bull Junior Team Driver, has chosen the Italian Trident Team to face his second season in the FIA Formula 3 Championship.
Jonny who won the ADAC F4 Championship in 2020, and was born in Whitehaven, has been able to appreciate the qualities of the team’s technical staff during the post season test at Valencia in 2021, on the Ricardo Tormo circuit. This first association with Trident proved extremely positive, whereupon he impressed the Italian outfit with his professionalism.
The move to Trident – traditionally a top team in the championship – will provide Jonny with the opportunity to be among the main protagonists of the series. Jonny who made his debut in the FIA Formula 3 Championship last year, has an excellent curriculum vitae in Motorsport. The 2022 FIA Formula 3 Championship will start on the Sakhir track in Bahrain, on the 19th and 20th of March 2022.
Maurizio Salvadori, Trident Team Owner: “Jonny Edgar is a driver that we followed very closely last year in the Formula 3 Championship. Although he did not receive particular results, the English driver impressed us thanks to his qualities. I am therefore very happy that Johnny will be part of the Trident Team line up in 2022. I am sure that he will compete in a top championship and will be a real protagonist of the season. Edgar hit the track in the Trident car in the post-season test held last November in Valencia where we were able to appreciate his talent at the wheel, his mature behavior and his impeccable professionalism.”
Jonny Edgar, 2022 FIA Formula 3 Championship driver for Trident: “I am very happy to be able to race for Trident Motorsport in the 2022 FIA Formula 3 Championship, an extremely professional team that will surely give me the possibility to compete in the top positions in the 2022 championship.”
