Ido Cohen will move up to FIA Formula 3 with Carlin for the 2021 season.
Cohen finished seventh in last year’s Euroformula Open championship, taking a pair of podiums, having previously competed in the Toyota Racing Series and Formula 4.
Cohen is Carlin’s second signing for its Formula 3 roster and joins Red Bull-backed ADAC Formula 4 champion Jonny Edgar.
“I’m pleased to be remaining within the Carlin family and taking this step up to FIA Formula 3,” said Cohen.
“I know it’s going to be a challenge, but I feel I have the right people around me to push hard in the championship this season.
“I have already competed at some of the tracks on the calendar but it’s great to be going to new circuits too.
“I’m really looking forward to getting back behind the wheel of the car – it feels like it’s been a really long time since the test I participated in with the team in 2020.”
Formula 3’s first pre-season test is scheduled to take place later this month.
“I’m delighted that Ido is staying with us for the 2021 season and making the step-up to the immensely competitive FIA F3 Championship,” said team boss Trevor Carlin.
“Ido really applied himself last season; he worked very hard and delivered some great results in the EuroFormula Open car.
“FIA F3 is a very tough championship but I know if he applies the same methods he can be pushing for some good results again in 2021.”
