F2 News: Trident Announce 2021 Drivers
A familiar face remains whilst a fresh face joins the team.
Trident have announced their drivers for the 2021 Formula 2 Season. They will be retaining Marino Sato for the 2021 Formula 2 campaign, with Bent Viscaal joining him in their line-up.
21-year-old Sato will enter his second full season of Formula 2 with the Italian team, having driven for them last year too. The Japanese driver claimed eighth place at Mugello and came close to the top-10 on multiple occasions.
Sato made his F2 debut in the final part of 2019. Also that year, Sato won the Euroformula Open title with nine wins, eleven podiums, six poles and five fastest laps. Sato also competed in the European Formula 3 Championship and the Italian Formula 4 Championship, winning once in the process.
Meanwhile, 21-year-old Viscaal will make his Formula 2 debut with Trident in the opening round of the season in Bahrain. The Dutchman, who is also set to drive for the team in pre-season testing, will make the step up from a race-winning season in Formula 3.
Viscaal was second in the 2018 Euroformula Open Championship with one win, 12 podiums and four poles. The Dutchman also ran in the 2017 Spanish Formula 4 championship, finishing third with five wins and 12 podiums.
