The FIA Formula 2 Championship is about to burst back on the scene at the British track of Silverstone this weekend. The Northamptonshire venue will host the seventh round of the season which will mark its half point. The Trident Motorsport drivers have the goal to continue their positive trend and improve their championship position.



Three weeks after making the trip to Baku, the FIA Formula 2 Championship will be back underway next weekend at Silverstone, on the most classic British circuit. The series selected one of the fastest and most technical tracks available to make its return to Europe, and kick off the middle part of the season.



The series' calendar features four races in July. That could not be more challenging for Formula 2 drivers and it’s an aspect that could become key for the balance of the year. The iconic Northamptonshire circuit is 5.891-km long and is famous for being a technical and fast facility, where high downforce is needed and managing thermal tyre degradation is key.



Conditions at Silverstone are notoriously windy and changes in wind direction occur quite frequently. This can have a major impact on car balance, forcing drivers to adapt their driving style accordingly in terms of braking points, cornering speed, and acceleration. There are several areas in which to perform overtaking maneuvers.


The Trident Motorsport drivers are lining up with clear goals. Richard Verschoor already has one win and two podiums to his credit this season. The fifth position achieved in Baku allowed the Dutchman to break a negative cycle and regain momentum. The 21-year-old driver is aiming to regain the podium positions at Silverstone, a track where he captured his first Formula 2 victory 12 months ago.



Australian rookie Calan Williams had his best result so far in the Jeddah Sprint Race, where he took fourth place. Since then, he has not gone back to the points zone, although he has shown solid potential. The Perth native hopes to get back on the move in the points standings and contribute, along with Verschoor, to taking Trident Motorsport higher in the Team classification.



Giacomo Ricci, Team Manager:
“We are almost halfway into the season and the data show us that our performance definitely improved compared to 2021. However, we have room to go for more. With the event at Silverstone, the Championship is entering a key moment with four races to be held in only one month. We faced the preparation phase for the trip to the UK with great commitment. We want to be ready to play our game to the finest and start this demanding series of races in the best possible way”.



The cars of the FIA Formula 2 Championship will be switched on for the 45-minute Free Practice on Friday morning at 10:45. Qualifying will be on the same day at 17:30, while the Sprint Race is scheduled for Saturday at 17:00. The Feature Race, the final one for the weekend, will be starting on Sunday at 10:05. All the action will be broadcasted by the Sky Sports F1 network. Times are local, CET -1.
