Antonio Giovinazzi has said he is aiming for the FIA Formula 3 European Championship title, after the Italian was announced to be returning to Carlin for 2015.

The 21-year-old teamed up with Jagonya Ayam for Carlin last season and secured two race wins on his way to a sixth place finish in the drivers' championship.

Looking ahead, Giovinazzi has set his sights on challenging for the Euro F3 title after enjoying a strong finish to 2014, reaching the podium five times in the final ten races.

"I'm very excited to have another season with Carlin in F3," said Giovinazzi. "We had a good season last year, we finished on a high with some very good results. I go into 2015 with the championship definitely the aim and it's great to have the same team around me to do that."

Team Principal Trevor Carlin said he is delighted to see the young Italian driver develop and expects him to improve on last year. Giovinazzi debuted in the Euro F3 series after he finished runner-up in the 2013 British F3 championship.

"Antonio should be seen as a real contender this season," said Carlin. "He really matured as a driver last year and overcame some issues to finish the season on a high. We're proud once again to be flying the colours of the Jagonya Ayam brand in Formula 3 and look forward to another season of racing winning success."
