Luca Ghiotto completes UNI-Virtuosi's F2 driver line-up

Luca Ghiotto will race for UNI-Virtuosi in Formula 2 next season, completing the team's driver line-up.

UNI-Virtuosi has taken over the entry and assets of the Russian Time outfit for which Ghiotto raced in 2017, when he finished fourth in the championship.

Ghiotto, who classified eighth in the 2018 standings after switching to Campos, will link up with Ferrari-backed Guan Yu Zhou at the operation.

It will be Ghiotto’s fourth campaign in the championship, having stepped up to F2’s predecessor GP2 with Trident in 2016 off the back of finishing runner-up to Esteban Ocon in GP3.

“I am obviously very excited to be joining UNI-Virtuosi Racing,” said Ghiotto.

“I am re-joining this group of hard-working people just 12 months after our last race together in 2017.

“Each one in the team has the highest culture of motorsport and a winning pedigree, which you can feel in every single act and their approach to motor racing.

“Obviously, our common target is to do much better than in 2017, when we ended fourth in the Drivers’ Championship.”
