Williams has added Formula 3 racer Luke Browning to its Driver Academy, the Formula 1 outfit announced on Thursday.
Browning is currently contesting his debut season in F3 with Hitech, and holds 10th in the championship after the opening two rounds, which were held in Bahrain and Australia.
The Briton won the British Formula 4 title in 2020 and last year secured the GB3 Championship.
