David Beckmann will return to Trident for the 2020 FIA Formula 3 campaign, renewing their successful partnership from the 2018 GP3 season. The German will partner highly-rated duo Olli Caldwell and Lirim Zendeli at the Italian side, replacing Devlin DeFrancesco.

The 20-year-old will look to add to the three wins, two poles and four podium finishes he scored with the side in that season, when he lines up for the Milan-based outfit in Spielberg, Austria, for the season opener.

“I am very motivated and proud to be back with Trident,” Beckmann said. “They’re a team that always believed in me and supported me in achieving extremely positive results. I established a strong relationship with the Team Trident family, so I am looking forward to reaching even more ambitious goals soon."

The 20-year-old spent the 2019 F3 campaign with ART Grand Prix, finishing 14th with 20 points and a highest place finish of fourth.

Team manager Giacomo Ricci added: “We are delighted to welcome David Beckmann back to our team. We always had great chemistry with him, and I am confident that we will be once again among the contenders for the FIA Formula 3 Championship, a pivotal series in the motorsport ladder.

“We will need to put up our maximum effort and to look at every possible element. This series is incredibly competitive, and even the slightest detail can be decisive."
