Williams junior Roy Nissany will stay in Formula 2 for a fourth season in 2022, and do so with the same DAMS team he raced for this year.

The Israeli has been competing in F2 since 2018, but missed the 2019 season due to injury, and has one sprint race podium from 67 starts.

His first two seasons were with Campos Racing and Trident, and he scored three times as many points as with his previous teams when he made the switch to DAMS. Before F2 he won four races in three Formula V8 3.5 seasons.

“I’m extremely happy to continue with DAMS, we have become a family which has made me feel very confident and comfortable,” said Nissany.

“I’m sure we will carry on with the amazing progress we have achieved so far, constantly pushing ourselves upwards.

“I’m really focused on continuing my development within the team throughout the new season and getting some solid results next year.”

He will be joined in post-season testing at Yas Marina Circuit this week by Red Bull and Honda junior Ayumu Iwasa, a winner in FIA Formula 3 Championship this year who is rumoured to be stepping up to F2 for 2022.

“We’re very happy to confirm Roy as part as our F2 line-up for next year, we have been able to build a strong relationship in our first year together,” DAMS’ co-owners Gregory and Olivier Driot commented.

“Both Roy and the team have their goals for the season to come, as we showed some very strong performances throughout 2021 but sometimes failed to materialise them into proper results.

“With two races per week instead of three, the new format will make it less unpredictable and it should help us transform our pace into consistent results. The three-day post-season test held in Abu Dhabi in the forthcoming days will be the kick-off for the preparation for next year and we are looking forward to it.”
