Kaylen Frederick will return for a third Formula 3 campaign in 2023, switching to ART Grand Prix after a season with Hitech Grand Prix.

The American racer is the French team’s third and final signing for 2023, alongside returnee Grégoire Saucy and Spanish F4 Champion Nikola Tsolov, and joins off the back of his strong season in the third tier to date, scoring seven points-scoring finishes in the first 10 races.

“I am very happy to be joining ART GP for the 2023 FIA F3 season. It's extremely exciting to be a part of such a prestigious team, and to see what the future holds for our collaboration,” said Frederick.

“A big thank you goes out to my team and sponsors for making this possible, and to everyone at ART for welcoming us into their team. Our performance and relationship have been promising from our first on track outings and I can't wait to build on this over the winter and throughout the coming season.”

Initially making his F3 debut in 2021 with Carlin Buzz Racing, Frederick scored points in his rookie campaign before making the switch to Hitech for the 2022 campaign. After a promising start to the season, he struggled for points in the latter half of the year and finished 17th in the Standings.

Participating in two days of post-season testing at Jerez with ART, the 20-year-old put in an impressive showing, finishing all four sessions inside the top 10 – including topping Day 1’s afternoon running.

Team Principal Sébastien Philippe added: “Kaylen confirmed the talent we thought he had during the Jerez tests, and we are confident in his ability to exploit his full potential with ART Grand Prix. English F3 champion, Kaylen already has the experience of managing a championship where you are racing in the lead and his qualities as a driver are undeniable. He will therefore be a double asset in a long and complex season, during which the team will aim to confirm its good results in 2022.”
