Calan Williams will continue racing with Jenzer Motorsport in the FIA Formula 3 Championship this year.

The Australian driver stepped up to the series in 2020 from Euroformula and scored a best finish of 14th.

He did qualify as high as fourth at Monza and fifth at the Hungaroring.

Williams stayed with Jenzer through both post-season tests in October. He was joined throughout by the team’s Italian Formula 4 racer Filip Ugran.

“I’m really looking forward to competing another season with Jenzer,” he said.

“There was quite a few times where we showed the potential in 2020. We started our 2021 preparations at the recent tests in Barcelona and Jerez very strongly, so I’m looking forward to what we can achieve together.

“The first few races are so important. You want to run at the front, have some good performances and get some points on the board. That’s huge not only for the driver’s confidence, but the team as well.”

A race-winner in 2019 with new Formula 1 racer Yuki Tsunoda, Jenzer scored a solitary podium last season with Matteo Nannini – who has switched to HWA for 2021.

“We are really motivated to have Calan back with us for his second season in FIA F3, fighting for maximum points in the new exciting weekend format featuring 21 races,” team boss Andreas Jenzer said.
