Jenzer Motorsport have extended their partnership with Australian racer Calan Williams, re-signing the 20-year-old for the 2021 campaign and confirming him as their first driver of the new season.

Williams, who will race under number 26, completed his rookie year in Formula 3 with the Swiss outfit and will return with the aim of challenging for points, podiums and wins in his second season.

Jenzer ran the 20-year-old across all four days of post-season at Barcelona and Jerez in October and the Australian impressed with a string of top three finishes.

"I'm really looking forward to competing another season with Jenzer,” said Williams. “There were quite a few times where we showed the potential in 2020. We started our 2021 preparations at the recent tests in Barcelona and Jerez very strongly, so I'm looking forward to what we can achieve together."

"The first few races are so important. You want to run at the front, have some good performances and get some points on the board. That's huge not only for the driver's confidence, but the team as well.

"I believe this year is going to be a strong one, there's plenty of confidence and belief after the testing, but there is certainly no complacency and both myself and Jenzer are working hard to extract every fraction of performance that we can."

Williams returned to his hometown of Perth, Australia after post-season testing, embarking upon a tough training regime to improve the mental and physical sides of his race craft.

Having secured his future, he will shortly return to Switzerland to continue his work ahead of the new season.

Team Principal Andreas Jenzer added: “We are really motivated to have Calan back with us for his second season in FIA F3 fighting for maximum points in the new exciting weekend format featuring 21 races.”
