HWA RACELAB has confirmed its first driver for the 2021 FIA Formula 3 Championship, with Matteo Nannini joining its line-up.
Nannini made his debut in F3 in 2020, competing the entire season with Jenzer Motorsport.
The 17-year-old, who is the nephew of F1 grand prix winner Alessandro, scored a best result of third last year at the Barcelona Sprint Race.
“I am very happy with my first year in Formula 3,” Nannini said. “I worked very hard and improved from race to race.
“I am now looking to build on this experience in the coming Formula 3 season.
“I would like to thank everyone who believes in me and supports me, particularly Infinity Sports Management, for their support. I will not disappoint them.”
Nannini joined F3 after a year of racing at a Formula 4 level, where he won the F4 UAE Championship in 2019
“We are pleased to have another very talented youngster on board, in Matteo,” said HWA Team Principal Thomas Strick.
“He fits perfectly into our concept of talent factory for Formula 1. He showed great willing to learn during the tests in Bahrain. If he will keep this up in the upcoming season, we will have a lot of fun with him.”
HWA ended the 2020 F3 season fifth in the Teams’ Championship with two victories and a further two podiums to its name.
