Aitken set for F2 return with HWA at Monaco and Baku

Williams reserve driver Jack Aitken will return to the FIA Formula 2 Championship this weekend in Monaco with HWA Racelab, a call-up that will also include an outing with the German outfit in Baku.

Aitken will sub for Matteo Nannini who will focus exclusively on his Formula 3 efforts HWA after initially planning to run in both F2 and F3 this season.

Aitken, who will race at HWA alongside Alessio Deledda, first competed in F2 with ART Grand Prix in 2018 before undertaking two seasons in the junior series with Campos Racing, and P5 in 2019 his best championship position.

"I was surprised but also very honoured that HWA asked me to support the team in Monaco and Baku," said Aitken.

"They are two of my favourite circuits and it is going to be a real pleasure! I know HWA from races in the past, in which we have competed against each other.

"I have always been aware of their high standard. I am looking forward to returning to Formula 2 and working with HWA, in order to get the absolute maximum out of the two weekends."

HWA team boss Thomas Strick added: "We are delighted to have acquired such a talented driver as Jack. With his wealth of experience in the FIA Formula 2 Championship, he is sure to be a great help to us.

"In the case of Matteo, we will be focussing on the FIA Formula 3 Championship for the rest of the season. He has already shown his potential in that series at the start of the season.

"We now want to develop that potential and offer Matteo the best possible support on the rest of his career path.

"It is now important for him to continuously develop with regular successes. We feel this is the right step to sustainably develop and support him in the current phase of his promising career."

Tsunoda undergoes 'mind reset' ahead of first trip to Monaco

AlphaTauri rookie Yuki Tsunoda will undertake his first trip to Monaco with a "reset mind" after a difficult outing at the Spanish Grand Prix.

Tsunoda's frustrating weekend in Barcelona started with the Japanese driver's unexpected elimination from qualifying in Q1, a setback that led the 21-year-old rookie to question whether he was driving the same car as his teammate.

He later apologized to his team for the inappropriate inference, but race day delivered another disappointment when Tsunoda was left stranded on the side of the track by an electrical problem after just six laps.

"I’m looking forward to Monaco, particularly as Spain was a difficult weekend for me," Tsunoda said in AlphaTauri's Monaco Grand Prix preview.

"I was not happy with my driving in qualifying and made a mistake, but I must learn to accept that these things can happen and move on.

"I have only done four race weekends in F1 so far and now I am just resetting my mind. I am focusing on my driving and adapting as much as possible to the car."

Tsunoda will have his work cut out for him next weekend along the blue shores of the Mediterranean, having never raced around Monte Carlo's tight and twisty layout.

But the AlphaTauri charger believes his experience of racing in the streets of Macau will come in handy in the Principality.

"I’ve never raced in Monaco in any category, but I have raced in Macau for example, so I have quite a bit of experience on street circuits," he explained.

"They’re okay. You need a very different approach on a street circuit like Monaco, especially considering I have never been there before.

"Track evolution is a big factor there, with very low grip at first and then it changes with every session."
