Trulli name returns to the paddock as Enzo joins F3

Enzo Trulli, son of former F1 race winner Jarno, will line up on the F3 grid this year after signing for Carlin.

In his debut season in cars last year, the 16-year-old captured the Formula 4 UAE Championship with four wins to his name while also achieving podiums in the Euroformula Open Championship with Carlin.

The Italian will now make the step up to F3 alongside Brad Benavides and Zak O'Sullivan, who recently joined the Williams Driver Academy.

"It is with great pleasure that I announce my commitment with Carlin for the 2022 FIA F3 Championship," said Trulli.

"I am so happy to stay in the Carlin family for this fantastic experience, after a very successful first season with them in the Euroformula. I am truly thankful to Trevor Carlin and the team for believing in me.

"Of course, it's going to be a learning season for me, considering the limited experience I have and the limited mileage available in the car.

"Yet, I'm ready to work hard and to support the team’s work and progress, in order to bring Carlin on top of the F3 list. It is such a fantastic opportunity and I look forward to starting the learning process!"

Racing director Trevor Carlin welcomed Trulli to the team and acknowledged the learning curve ahead of him after only one season in cars.

"Enzo has made a remarkable start to his single-seater career," said Carlin. "He impressed us greatly with his performances in Euroformula Open despite having extremely limited experience.

"His performance in the rain in Monza, his first wet single-seater race, was particularly indicative as to his mindset and approach. This season will be a massive learning curve for him.

"FIA F3 is a hugely competitive series and a huge ask for a driver in only their second season of racing.

"Enzo needs to focus on learning and taking something from each weekend. We are thrilled to be working with him and look forward to helping him progress with each race."
