Christopher Zanella has announced that he will be switching categories in 2011, as the young Swiss driver steps up from a full campaign in Italian F3 to take part in Formula 2. After a promising season in which he finished sixth overall, the 21-year-old went on to take part in F2 winter testing, and has since decided to join the grid.
"I chose F2 because I strongly believe that it’s the only racing competition where everyone has a fair and equal chance," said Christopher. "Also in comparison with GP3 and GP2 it has a far better cost to benefit ratio. The quality of the field is very high but I will be aiming for the top two at the end of the year."
Jonathan Palmer, Formula 2 Series Director, added: "Christopher looked strong last December when he tested the Williams F2 car at Barcelona, being only 0.1 sec from Italian F3 champion Cesar Ramos.
"Christopher is an intelligent guy with a great approach and he appreciates that F2 offers him a championship where he has the confidence to know he has a car capable of winning. I’m delighted he’s made the sensible decision to progress his career with us."
