Romanian racer Mihai Marinescu has announced that he will be competing in Formula 2 for a second year, with a top three finish in the championship firmly in his sights. The 22-year-old graduated to F2 at the start of 2010 after a year competing in Formula Renault 3.5. After a double points finish during the opening round at Silverstone, Marinescu went on to finish the season in 11th place with 68 points to his name.
"Last year was really good and I’ll be putting that experience into good use this time,” the Braşov-born man commented ahead of the new season. “Silverstone testing went well and I feel confident with the track, so it’s a great opportunity for the podium. In the championship I want to finish in the top three but I have my eyes on the Williams F1 test."
Formula 2 Series Director Jonathan Palmer added: "It’s really great to have Mihai back for 2011. He showed great promise last year and given his impressive run in pre-season testing I’m sure he will be a strong contender for podiums, and maybe even race wins, starting from Silverstone this weekend."
