Ralph Boschung completes Trident F2 driver line-up

Swiss racer Ralph Boschung has joined series rookie Giuliano Alesi to complete the Trident line-up in Formula 2.

The 21-year old will compete in his third season of F2 after spending the previous two seasons with MP Motorsport and Campos Racing respectively.

Boschung's best results have been as high as seventh place and he has been a regular finisher inside the top 10.

"I am thrilled to join the Trident family for the 2019 FIA Formula 2 Championship, said Boschung. "I have been in contact with them for several years and I am delighted that the conditions to work together are finally in place.

"The team is high-level, both from a technical and human point of view, and I am sure that there will be the needed chemistry for a top season. I cannot wait to get back on track.

"I thank Team Trident for the trust placed in me, and my partners and sponsors as they enabled me to start this new and important chapter of my career.”

Trident Team Manager Giacomo Ricci added: "In 2018, three drivers were directly promoted from F2 to F1, reflecting how the motorsport ladder is getting more and more effective.

"Ralph is a driver of great quality and undisputed talent. Together with Giuliano Alesi, he will form a complementary line-up with high potential. Never like today, I am waiting for the engines to start and to begin a new and exciting season."

The FIA Formula 2 season gets underway in Bahrain on March 29-31.
