David Beckmann and Guilherme Samaia have both been announced as the 2021 drivers for the Charouz Racing System team.

Beckmann will make the step up to Formula 2 after competing near the front of the 2020 Formula 3 field. The German clinched two wins and five podiums with Trident during his second season last year, finishing sixth overall.

The 20-year-old – who also has experience in ADAC and Italian Formula 4, as well as the now defunct European F3 Championship – debuted for Charouz during the post-season tests in Bahrain.

Samaia makes the switch to the Czech team’s line-up, as he joins them from F2 rivals Campos Racing.

The 24-year-old is a former Brazilian Formula 3 Champion and also has experience in BRDC F3, European Open and Spanish F3.

What do you make of their new driver line-up? Let me know in the comments below.
