The 20-year-old Brazilian, who is the younger brother of Haas F1 reserve Pietro, has secured his graduation with the Charouz Racing System squad with whom he had been competing for in Formula 3.

Fittipaldi will replace David Beckmann as Guilherme Samaia’s new teammate at the Czech team from the next round of the 2021 season at Monza. Beckmann leaves Charouz despite scoring all its 25 points so far this year.

“I am extremely happy to be making my debut in the FIA Formula 2 championship,” said Fittipaldi.

“I really want to thank Charouz Racing System and all my sponsors for this opportunity.

“We had a very solid first part of the F3 season together and I am looking forward to the next chapter. Monza will be my first time in an F2 car and I’m very excited.

“I will have a huge learning curve ahead with a 30min practice and then straight to qualifying but nonetheless I can't wait to get in the car at Monza.

“The goal will be to gain as much experience as possible to get me more prepared for the last F2 rounds.”

Fittipaldi had contested the first four rounds of the F3 season with Charouz and claimed a best result of second place in Hungary, before he was absent from the last event at Spa-Francorchamps.

“I’m truly glad to welcome Enzo in our F2 team,” said team owner Antonin Charouz.

"He did a great job with our F3 team in the first half of this season, proving to be a talented and professional driver, with a great desire to improve and grow at every race.

"As a team, we are very pleased to be able to give him the chance to make his debut in F2, where I am sure he will do just as well. The second part of the season will be challenging, but we know we have everything we need to aim for important results”.
