2019 Eurocup Formula Renault

Fernando Alonso’s FA Racing squad will expand to include an entry in the Formula Renault Eurocup from 2019.

Alonso’s team was announced alongside nine others that were pre-selected for the 2019 campaign which will feature a new generation Formula Renault car.

Seven of last year’s teams are set to continue alongside three new outfits including FA Racing.

“It’s a real honor to have FA Racing by DriveX pre-selected for the 2019 Formula Renault season,” said Alonso.

“This series has provided some of my toughest competitors in F1 and this highlights its very high competitiveness level.

“After karting, e-sport and F4, Formula Renault is for FA Racing the logical step in our development.

“The arrival of the new car was the opportunity to start on the same level as all the teams and we are now eager to be on the starting grid to show what we are made of!

“On a more personal note, it is a great pleasure to continue my history with Renault.”

Formula Renault Eurocup is a feeder series to Formula 1 which has produced drivers like Daniel Ricciardo and Sebastian Vettel.

In 2018 three Australians competed in the category with Alex Peroni winning in Monaco and Oscar Piastri claiming three podiums over the course of the year.

The 10 round 2019 season kicks off at Monza in April.
