British youngster Olli Caldwell will step up to the FIA Formula 3 Championship this season, completing Trident’s driver line-up.
Caldwell joined the squad for post-season testing and the Macau Grand Prix in 2019, having secured fifth in the Formula Regional European Championship.
Caldwell, 17, will partner Lirim Zendeli and Devlin DeFrancesco at the Italian operation.
“I am very happy to be joining Trident this year in FIA F3,” Caldwell said.
“The team has the capability to win races and I’m looking forward to pushing the car to the limit and collecting trophies for them.”
Trident finished fourth in last year’s Teams’ Championship, with Formula 2-bound Pedro Piquet earning its sole victory at Spa-Francorchamps.
“Olli Caldwell is one of the most promising and appreciated prospects in British motorsport,” said Trident boss Maurizio Salvadori.
“We had the chance to evaluate his skills and qualities last year in post-season testing at Valencia and in the Macau Grand Prix.
“Despite being a rookie, Caldwell impressed our technical staff on both occasions.
“I am sure that all the right ingredients are in place for him to do extremely well with Trident, which will give its 100 per cent to support him in such a competitive series like the FIA Formula 3 Championship.”
