Raffaele Marciello will return to Formula 2 with Trident at the Red Bull Ring this weekend.

The former Ferrari junior driver raced in the series then known as GP2 for three seasons between 2014 and 2016, and competed for Trident in his second campaign.

He returned to the Italian outfit for the end-of-season test in Abu Dhabi last December, before moving into GT racing for 2017.

Marciello will be team-mate to Nabil Jeffri, taking the place of Sergio Canamasas, who is understood to have switched to Rapax in place of fellow veteran Johnny Cecotto.

?I?m really proud to be back working with Team Trident after the previous and really positive experience in the 2015 GP2 Series,” said Marciello, the 2013 European Formula 3 champion.

“They proved both competitive and professional throughout the years, a real benchmark in motorsports.

“I look forward to making my contribution to strengthen the team even further.”

Marciello finished third in both GP2 races at the Red Bull Ring in 2014, then driving for Racing Engineering, and did so again in last year’s feature race with Russian Time.
