Nicholas Latifi will remain with DAMS for a third year in FIA Formula 2 in 2019, becoming the first confirmed driver in its line-up for next year.

Latifi, 23, finished ninth in the F2 standings last year with one win and two further podium finishes to his name as he balanced his racing commitments with a development role at Force India in Formula 1.

"My aims for this year are quite clear, I want to compete for the drivers' title and help DAMS win the Teams' Championship," said the 23-year-old.

"The potential has been there for us to fight at the front, but we had some bad luck early on in 2018.

"My best performances came in the last few rounds, so hopefully we can continue that strong form into 2019.

"Driving for DAMS has given me the opportunity to showcase my abilities, which has helped in securing my F1 role with Williams, and I'm excited to be returning for another season."
