Isack Hadjar will make his debut in the FIA Formula 3 Championship this year, joining Hitech Grand Prix.
Hadjar, who was a recent addition to the Red Bull junior programme, will also race for Hitech in Formula Regional Asia prior to the F3 campaign.
Last year, Hadjar raced in the Formula Regional European Championship and ended the season fifth in the Drivers’ Championship.
His most successful season of single-seater racing came in 2020, when he ended the French Formula 4 campaign third in the standings.
“I am really happy to race with Hitech for a full campaign in FIA F3 and Formula Regional Asia,” said Hadjar. “I’m excited to see what we are able to achieve together and be working with a new team as I make my step up.
“There will be a lot to take in and plenty to learn, but I am ready for the challenge! Thanks to Red Bull for their support.”
Hadjar is the first F3 driver confirmed to the Hitech team for 2022.
Last year, Hitech ended the F3 season sixth in the Teams’ Championship, scoring a single victory across the campaign.
