Red Bull Junior and sometime Carlin IndyCar driver Patricio O'Ward is set to make his F2 debut this weekend in Austria.
The highly rated Mexican driver is set to step into the Formula 2 MP Motorsport car vacated by Mahaveer Raghunathan this weekend in Austria, returning to European competition following the Indians race ban from the Formula One supporting category.
Having engaged in a part season of the NTT IndyCar Series for 2019, O'Ward is taking the opportunity to broaden his racing experience by making a much anticipated first start in the FIA Formula 2 category at Austria's Red Bull Ring this coming weekend - marking a return to European competition for the first time since his seventh place finish in the 2014 French F4 series for Auto Sport Academy.
Outgoing MP Motorsport driver Raghunathan incurred the wrath of the FIA for a messy weekend of super licence penalty point gathering last time out at Paul Ricard, but should return to the series for the British round in Silverstone on the weekend of July 12th - 14th.
