Jenzer Motorsport has announced its second signing for the 2021 FIA Formula 3 Championship, as Pierre-Louis Chovet joins the Swiss squad.
The Frenchman made his debut in the series last year for Hitech Grand Prix at Spa before picking up his best race finish of sixth at the following round at Monza.
The 18-year-old also competed in the Formula Regional European Championship for Van Amersfoort Racing in 2020, notching up one win in Barcelona and concluding the year overall in fifth.
Jenzer has already confirmed that Calan Williams will stay with the team but has yet to reveal the identity of its third driver.
“Following my few experiences in FIA F3 at the end of last year, I decided to compete in the whole 2021 season with the Jenzer Motorsport team,” Chovet said.
“The state-of-the-art technical know-how and the atypical approach of Andreas Jenzer’s team, as well as its human quality and its focus on FIA F3 are three of the factors that convinced me to jump within this innovative project.
“Competing in this category since the very beginning of GP3, again, with its own and original approach, Jenzer Motorsport contributed largely to the development of Yuki Tsunoda who is reaching F1 this year.
“I can’t wait to start working and drive my beast for the first official testing days in Jerez on the 25th and 26th of February.”
Team Principal Andreas Jenzer added: “We’re really excited to start working with Pierre-Louis on track.
“Judging by what he has shown so far, we see great potential and an exciting F3 season ahead for all of us.”
