Clement Novalak will remain in the FIA Formula 3 Championship for a second campaign in 2021, making a switch to Trident Motorsport.
Novalak, who races under a British licence, made his debut in the series in 2020 with Carlin, securing two podium results throughout the year on his way to P12 in the standings.
Prior to his maiden season in F3 last year, Novalak won the British F3 Championship in 2019 after making his single-seater debut in 2018, racing British F3, Formula Renault Eurocup and the Toyota Racing Series.
“It is with great pleasure to announce that I will be racing with Trident this year,” Novalak said.
“I am extremely honoured to join such a prestigious team and I hope to take this opportunity to achieve my goals.
“I had an amazing experience with the team last year throughout post season testing, and I really felt at one with the crew. Hence, I am extremely looking forwards to racing under the Trident colours for 2021.”
Novalak is the second driver confirmed in Trident’s 2021 F3 line-up, after it announced the signing of David Schumacher last week.
The 20-year-old linked up with the Trident at the post-season F3 tests last year following a successful year for the Italian team, who picked up three race wins throughout the season.
Trident Team Manager Giacomo Ricci said: “Clement is an extremely fast and competitive racer who has a lot of qualities.
“He is enthusiastic and absolutely dedicated to the work, I really like his approach and work method. We are delighted that he is part of our line-up for the 2021 FIA Formula 3 Championship.
“He impressed the team in the postseason tests and created great chemistry with all its members. I am sure that he is now set for a very competitive season under our banner.
“In 2020, he showed his full abilities, albeit with ups and downs. If he will make the step forward that I expect, he will be among the leading contenders in 2021.”
