Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula One Team (AMF1) have announced that their Brazilian Reserve and Test driver, Felipe Drugovich, will continue with them in his current capacity for the 2024 season as well. 

Serving as the team’s Official Test and Reserve Driver, Drugovich will be seen in action later this month at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix FP1 session, sitting in for Fernando Alonso. Earlier this year, he appeared in a Free Practice session at the Italian Grand Prix, filling in for Lance Stroll. 

Drugovich will continue to work on simulator development at the AMR Technology Campus in Silverstone. AMF1 also have in mind their Brazil-facing partnerships with XP and Banco Masters, which have Drugovich front and centre of the agreements. 

Speaking about continuing his association with the team, Felipe Drugovich commented:

I’m really proud to be continuing to work with Aston Martin for a second season. This year, I’ve learnt a huge amount – not just at the racetrack, but working with the engineers in the simulator and from the development programme that was designed for me. I’m proud of the contribution I’ve been able to make, and pleased that I’ve been able to help progress the development of AMR23. My focus now shifts towards preparing for the upcoming FP1 session at Abu Dhabi – I’m already looking forward to driving the AMR23 again – and to the work I’ll be doing with the engineers over the winter to prepare for 2024.

I want to thank the whole team for their incredible support over the last 12 months; and a big shout-out to my Brazilian partners, XP, Porto and Banco Master, who have supported me every step of the way. I feel there is so much that we can achieve as a team in the future.

Mike Krack, Team Principal, Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula One Team, said:

Everyone at Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula One Team is incredibly pleased that Felipe will be staying with us in 2024. He’s a familiar face within the team; he understands the particular demands of the role, has a tremendous work ethic, and has shown his speed and experience after stepping in superbly for an injured Lance Stroll during pre-season testing in Bahrain.

Every time he gets behind the wheel, we clearly see the strength of his contribution: his pace, feedback and commitment are all extremely valuable to our engineers. We are already looking forward to him rounding out his season in style with another opportunity to drive the AMR23 during FP1 of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. We look forward to another productive season together next year.
