Jenzer Motorsport have confirmed that Federico Malvestiti will join Ido Cohen and William Alatalo for the remainder of the 2022 F3 season. The Italian had previously raced for the Swiss outfit in 2020 and worked with the team at both 2022 in-season testing sessions at Jerez and Barcelona earlier this month.

Malvestiti and Jenzer first joined forces in 2017 and 2018 in Italian F4, before a season of Formula Renault Eurocup in 2019. That same year, the Italian had a first taste of F3 at Silverstone ahead of a challenging rookie season.

“I’m very happy to be back in the team in a such prestigious championship, “ he said. “After I moved to GT cars for one year and a half I’m happy to be back in formula. Thanks to the team for giving me this great opportunity that I never expected for this season. I will do my best to work well with the team and achieve the best possible result.“

Jenzer’s team owner Andreas Jenzer added: “We welcome Federico! It is very motivating for all of us that he is back with his “old team”! Obviously, it was not originally planned like this. We now look forward and will work hard to make the best out of this second chance together.”
