Arjun Maini will continue as a Haas F1 Team development driver in 2018 while simultaneously competing in his first full season in the FIA Formula 2 Championship with Trident.

The 20-year-old from Bengaluru is paired with 19-year-old American Santino Ferrucci and both are Haas’ development drivers and compete for Team Trident.

“Being involved with an F1 program has really accelerated my learning in terms of what I need to do on the racetrack and with my engineers. In fact, it’s already helped me transition from GP3 to F2. I’m one step closer to my goal of competing in F-1 thanks to Haas,” said Maini. “Arjun enjoyed a breakout season in GP3 last year and we’re keeping a close watch on his progress this year in F2,” said Guenther Steiner, team principal.

“He has a history of finding success at every level in which he’s competed and we’re supportive of his efforts.”
