Fabio Gamberini makes F2 debut at the Nürburgring this weekend

Fabio Gamberini is the latest driver to sign up to the F2 series.


Brazilian driver Fabio Gamberini has today (Wednesday) confirmed that he will join the 2011 FIA Formula Two Championship this weekend at the Nürburgring in Germany. The 18-year-old will make his debut in the series during rounds seven and eight at the famed F1 circuit.


Gamberini joins F2 on the back of his current season in European F3 Open, which runs as a support series to Formula Two at the majority of its meetings. Last weekend Fabio secured an impressive maiden win at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit, and he lies second overall in the standings having scored points in every race.


Prior to this season he raced in the British Formula Ford Championship in 2009, finishing third in the scholarship class, before moving to the Formula Renault UK series last year with Mark Burdett Motorsport.


In his native Brazil, Gamberini formed a reputation as an accomplished karter, beginning racing at the age of eight and becoming the Brazilian Champion in the Junior Menor Category in 2005.


Commenting on his decision to join the F2 line-up Gamberini said:
“I’m really excited about this weekend and I’m really looking forward to racing in F2. It will be my first time in an F2 car and also my first time at the Nürburgring so it will take a bit of getting used to and learning the feel of the car.


The F2 car is also a lot quicker than anything else I’ve driven. My goals for the weekend would be to secure a top eight finish and if all goes well a full season in F2 could be a possible option for next year.”



Formula Two Series Director Jonathan Palmer added:
“We’re delighted to welcome Fabio to F2 this weekend. Adapting to a 500bhp Formula Two car will clearly be a big step for him, but given his single-seater experience and impressive form in European F3 Open this year, I’m sure he’ll be on the pace as the weekend progresses and could even challenge for points.


It’s a fantastic opportunity for Fabio to see how he measures up against a really strong field of drivers in F2 this year.”


The next rounds of the 2011 FIA Formula Two Championship get underway this weekend (1-3 July) at Germany’s Nürburgring with full coverage on the official F2 website www.formulatwo.com
