Ralf Aron has rejoined Prema for the 2018 Formula 3 European Championship after one year away.
The Estonian driver won the Italian Formula 4 title with Prema in 2015 before stepping up to F3 with the squad the following season, winning a race and finishing seventh in the standings.
Last year he moved to Hitech GP and came ninth overall, while he drove for Van Amersfoort Racing on his Macau Grand Prix debut in November and finished third after starting 13th.
“We are really looking forward to working with Ralf again,” said Prema chief Rene Rosin.
“He is smart, fast and consistent and he’s also a very positive person to have within the team.
“He was able to take victory straight away with us at his Formula 3 debut and I’m sure he has the skill set to become a real contender this season.
“I couldn’t be more satisfied with how our line-up for 2018 is shaping up so it will sure be a great season.”
Aron joins Ferrari juniors Marcus Armstrong and Robert Shwartzman with confirmed deals with Prema for 2018, with both Guan Yu Zhou and Mick Schumacher linked to staying on.
“I am very excited to be back with Prema Powerteam for 2018,” said Aron.
“We won a championship in F4 together and I have learned from the mistakes I have made in F3.
“Combining the experience and determination that I and Prema have, we will be stronger than ever and ready to conquer the podium at round one.”
