Marcus Armstrong will compete for Hitech Grand Prix in this year’s FIA Formula 2 Championship.
The ex-Ferrari junior stepped up to the category with ART Grand Prix in 2020 and last year represented DAMS.
Armstrong claimed his sole victory to date at Jeddah en route to 13th place in the final standings.
Armstrong will link up with Red Bull junior Juri Vips at Hitech, having tested for the squad at the end of 2021.
“I’m thrilled to be joining Hitech this season in Formula 2,” said Armstrong.
“Team Principal Oliver Oakes brought me to Europe a few years back and I saw Hitech in the early days. Since then, it’s transformed into one of the powerhouses of Formula 2 and 3.
“I’m looking forward to be working with a successful group of people and giving it everything I’ve got in my new Hitech team this year.”
Only five seats now remain on this year’s Formula 2 grid, ahead of the opening round of 2022 alongside Formula 1’s Bahrain Grand Prix in mid-March.
Only ART Grand Prix, Campos Racing, Trident Motorsport, Charouz Racing System and Van Amersfoort Racing have a vacancy apiece.
