Although the 2022 Formula 2 season isn’t over yet, the pieces for 2023 are already beginning to fall into place as Dennis Hauger becomes the first driver announcement for next year, switching from PREMA Racing to MP Motorsport.
The 19-year-old will be joining the team that helped Aston Martin reserve and development driver Felipe Drugovich to the title and currently sit top of the teams’ championship ahead of the final round in Abu Dhabi.

“I am really excited about joining MP Motorsport for another assault on the FIA Formula 2 Championship. MP have been the revelation of this season, consistently producing a great car for every round of the season,” Hauger said.
“We have recognised that, and it’s wonderful news that we have been able to make the deal work. I’m looking forward to working with the team starting at the Abu Dhabi test, which I hope will be our jump start to a very successful 2023 season.”
Graduating to F2 off the back of his 2021 Formula 3 title with PREMA, the Norwegian has experienced an up-and-down run of form.
He lies 11th in the standings with two wins and four podiums to his name heading into the season finale and the Red Bull junior will get his first running for MP during the post-season F2 test in Abu Dhabi from 23-25 November.

Team Principal Sander Dorsman added: “We are absolutely delighted that someone of Dennis’ calibre will be part of our Formula 2 programme in 2023. His 2021 Formula 3 title year is still fresh on my mind – he made no prisoners and was truly outstanding.
“With the knowledge and experience that he has gained in his F2 rookie season, I’m positive that he will translate those into consistent pace-setting form and more results like the ones he produced at Monaco and Baku this year.”
