Cohen remains in Carlin for FIA F3 step-up | F3 News – Motorsports

Carlin has confirmed that Id Cohen will be graduating from the FIA ​​Formula Three Championship with the British team this season.

The 19-year-old Israeli has joined Red Bull Junior Johnny Edgar in the United Kingdom and has not yet been named the third driver in the Carlin 2021 lineup.

Cohen stepped up to FIA F3, which drove Carlin in last year’s Euro Formula Open Series, and finished seventh overall with two podiums.

The teenager raced in Italian and ADAC Formula 4 at Van Amersfoort Racing in 2019 and also appeared in the Toyota Racing Series in New Zealand.

“I’m happy to stay in the Carlin family and take this step towards FIA Formula 3,” Cohen said.

“I know it will be a challenge, but I feel that there are people around me who deserve to push hard in this season’s championship.

“I have already competed on some tracks on the calendar, but going to a new circuit is also great.

“I’m really looking forward to grabbing the steering wheel of the car. It feels like it’s been a long time since I took part in the test with the team in 2020.”

Cohen has already experienced the Carlin F3 car that took part in the post-season test last year.

Team boss Trevor Carlin said:

“Last season, Id really applied himself. He worked very hard and had some great results with the Euroformula convertible.

“FIA F3 is a very tough championship, but I know he can get some good results again in 2021 if he applies the same method.”

Three pre-season tests are planned for FIA F3, the first of which will take place February 25-26 in Jerez.

The season is set to begin with a support bill for the F1 Spanish Grand Prix on May 7-9.
