Tveter to make F2 debut with Trident

The 25-year-old was part of the Italian team's GP3 roster in the two previous seasons, scoring five podium finishes in that time.

He sampled the F2 car with Trident, as well as BWT Arden, in post-season testing in Abu Dhabi in 2018, but did not wind up with a full-time drive for this year.

"I am incredibly excited to be back with the Trident family again and am so grateful for the opportunity to make my debut in FIA Formula 2 this weekend in Austria," Tveter said.

"Together we have achieved some pretty remarkable results over the last two seasons and I thank Trident for showing their continued confidence in me.

"It’s been a bit of a long wait since my first F2 test in Abu Dhabi last year, but as you can imagine, I’m beyond excited to get back out on track."

GP3 race winner Boschung, who has featured on the F2 grid since the championship's rebranding in 2017, will make way for Tveter, who will line up alongside Ferrari protege Giuliano Alesi.

Boschung wrote on social media earlier this month that he was "bleeding myself to be on the grid every round with the financial issues" - and has now confirmed that he was departing F2 for good.

 

The Swiss driver has scored three of Trident's four points in 2019 so far, with the Italian outfit resigned to last place in the teams' standings.

Tveter is the second driver confirmed to be making his F2 debut in the upcoming Austrian round, with Red Bull-backed IndyCar driver Patricio O'Ward replacing the banned Mahaveer Raghunathan at MP Motorsport.
