Collet’s decision to stay with MP Motorsport comes after an extremely promising debut season in FIA F3 that saw the Brazilian ace finish on the podium in his very first race at Barcelona. Adding another podium at Paul Ricard as well as a string of other big points finishes elevated him to ninth in the season’s final classification and second in the rookie standings. For his sophomore year, the Alpine junior joins Alexander Smolyar in the Dutch outfit along with a yet to be announced third driver.
“I’m very happy to continue in FIA F3 with MP Motorsport and the enduring support of the Alpine Academy”, said Collet. “We were strong in 2021 – and that was while taking on many accomplished drivers in an intensely competitive championship. With the knowledge that I have gained in my first season, I’m very much aiming to improve on last year’s results. I’m also looking forward to again be racing in the special atmosphere of the Grand Prix weekends, and in front of the F1 teams.”
