Red Bull strengthens squad with grandson of legendary F1 champion

Red Bull will have a new addition to their driver academy, with Enzo Fittipaldi announcing that he has joined the team.

Red Bull have added to their young driver roster by signing Enzo Fittipaldi to their stable. Fittipaldi becomes the fifth Formula 2 driver in Red Bull's junior roster, joining Jehan Daruvala, Liam Lawson, Denis Hauger and Ayumu Iwasa. Enzo Fittipaldi, grandson of two-time F1 Champion Emerson, announced ahead of the Brazilian Grand Prix that he has joined the Red Bull driver academy, announcing the news through his social media channels. He is the brother of Pietro Fittipaldi, the current reserve driver at the Haas team. The Brazilian driver joins after a solid first season in Formula 2, achieving six podiums finishes in his first full season in the series. He is currently sixth in the F2 Championship but, with one round to go, he can finish as high as second place in the 2022 standings.
