Ferrari Driver Academy member Dino Beganovic will spend a second season in Formula Regional European Championship with Prema in 2022.

It will be the Swede’s third year with the team, having debuted in single-seaters last year as one of Prema’s Italian Formula 4 drivers and taking a win, before stepping up to FRegional.

A half-season in Formula Regional Asian Championship helped him adapt to the step up in machinery, and bagged him four podiums, before he came 13th in FREC with a pole and a podium.

“I’m thrilled to be back in the Formula Regional European Championship next year and extend my relationship with Prema and the Ferrari Driver Academy for another season,” said Beganovic.

“We worked incredibly hard to put ourselves in a position to win races towards the end of the year, and I can’t wait to try and build on that momentum in 2022. The championship is fantastic and I’m excited to be back!”

Beganovic could have Mercedes-AMG Formula 1 junior Paul Aron as one of his team-mates, as in 2021.

“We are delighted to have Dino with us for another season,” Prema’s team principal Rene Rosin said.

“He improved a lot through the course of the year, and with the potential he has shown in the last few races, we are sure he can be a contender for the championship.

“We all know that he is also extremely dedicated and hard-working, so he has been a perfect fit for the team since the beginning. We think his presence will be beneficial for everybody on board.”
