F2 champion Drugovich reveals potential options to race in 2023

F2 champion Felipe Drugovich is still looking for a race seat in 2023 to dovetail with his F1 commitments with Aston Martin.

2022 Formula 2 champion Felipe Drugovich says he would be interested in racing hypercars or in Super Formula alongside his Aston Martin commitments in '23. As defending F2 champion, Brazilian racer Drugovich is banned from returning to the series and, with no Formula 1 race seats available, signed a reserve driver deal with Aston Martin to shadow Fernando Alonso and Lance Stroll. He made his F1 debut in FP1 at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, and is set for further such outings in 2023, but is also searching for a race seat in another series. The hypercars of the World Endurance Championship or Japanese Super Formula are potential options Drugovich could be interested in, although he says nothing is decided.

Drugovich explains future plans

"The plan is that I will be the reserve driver for Aston Martin in Formula 1," he explained to media including RacingNews365.com at the FIA's annual prize giving ceremony in Bologna. "I'm going to be following the team and trying to learn as much as I can - I'll be doing a few of the FP1 [session] as well next year, so that's something to look forward to. "The team is keen to let me do something else, which I don't know yet. "We're trying to see if there's an opportunity to keep racing, to just keep the activity going, but the priority will always be Formula 1. "It has to be something that doesn't clash with F1 and a programme that doesn't take so many days from my year. "It can be hypercars or Super Formula or anything. [Le Mans] would be cool if I could do it."
