Brazilian youngster Enzo Fittipaldi has joined Red Bull’s driver academy.
Fittipaldi, 21, has competed full-time in Formula 2 for Charouz Racing System this season.
Fittipaldi, the younger brother of two-time F1 starter and Haas reserve Pietro, holds sixth in Formula 2’s standings with six podium finishes.
His plans for the 2023 season have not yet been communicated.
“Very happy to announce that I will be joining the Red Bull family,” Fittipaldi wrote on social media. “Thanks to Dr. Helmut Marko and Christian Horner for the opportunity.”
Fittipaldi’s grandfather, Emerson, won the Formula 1 title in 1972 and 1974 respectively.
Brazil has not had a full-time representative on the Formula 1 grid since Felipe Massa’s retirement at the end of 2017.
Felipe Drugovich won this year’s Formula 2 championship and has since taken up a reserve position with Aston Martin.
