Italian youngster Lorenzo Colombo will compete in the Formula Renault Eurocup this year with JD Motorsport.
Colombo came third in Italian Formula 4 in 2017, after finishing 12th as a rookie the previous season.
He made his Euroformula Open debut at the final round in Barcelona in October with Campos Racing, finishing fifth and sixth in the two races before topping the post-event test at the circuit.
Colombo then also starred in the subsequent Eurocup rookie test at Barcelona with JD Motorsport, lapping as the top rookie and only four thousandths of a second off overall pace-setter Neil Verhagen.
He was second again to Verhagen on the final afternoon of official testing at Paul Ricard.
