Mercedes Formula 1 junior driver Paul Aron will race in the Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine in 2021, making a return to the Prema team.
Aron raced for the Italian squad in the 2019 German and Italian Formula 4 Championships, finishing third in the standings in the latter.
In 2020, the Estonian moved to Formula Renault Eurcocup with ART Grand Prix, scoring just a single podium on his way to 11th in the Drivers’ standings.
This year marks the third campaign of the Formula Regional European Championship, which has merged with Formula Renault Eurocup, and sees Aron join Ferrari junior Dino Beganovic and David Vidales at Prema.
“I can’t express how thankful I am for this opportunity,” Aron said. “I’m super happy to be back with Prema for the 2021 Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine.
“The team is like a second family for me. We managed to do an amazing year together in Formula 4, and I am sure they are just the ingredient I need to make a successful year in 2021. Can’t wait for the season to start!”
Prema founder and Team Principal Angelo Rosin added: “It’s great to welcome Paul back with us.
“He impressed us in his debut season in car racing, and we are looking forward to seeing how he progressed and matured.
“We are sure he has outstanding potential and the fact that he already knows the car-engine package means that he will be an even more valuable asset.”
