Jenzer Motorsport have confirmed the capture of their second driver for the 2021 campaign, announcing that Pierre-Louis Chovet will join Calan Williams at the Swiss team.
The Frenchman made his debut in Formula 3 last season, competing in two rounds for Hitech Grand Prix, with a best finish of sixth in Race 2 at Monza.
The 18-year-old competed in the 2020 Formula Regional European Championship, finishing fifth with one win, one pole and seven podiums overall.
“Following my few experiences in FIA F3 at the end of last year, I decided to compete in the whole 2021 season with the Jenzer Motorsport team,” said Chovet.
“The state-of-the-art technical know-how and the atypical approach of Andreas Jenzer’s team, as well as its human quality and its focus on FIA F3 are three of the factors that convinced me to jump within this innovative project.
“Competing in this category since the very beginning of GP3, again, with its own and original approach, Jenzer Motorsport contributed largely to the development of Yuki Tsunoda who is reaching F1 this year.
“I can’t wait to start working and drive my beast for the first official testing days in Jerez on the 25th and 26th of February.”
Chovet made his single-seater debut in French Formula 4, back in 2017, competing in nine rounds and taking one victory.
He then stepped up to the Championship full-time in 2018, finishing in sixth place, with one win and four podiums.
Team Principal Andreas Jenzer added: “We're really excited to start working with Pierre-Louis on track. Judging by what he has shown so far, we see great potential and an exciting F3 season ahead for all of us.”
