DAMS have confirmed that Roy Nissany will remain with the team for the 2022 Formula Two season.
Nissany first joined F2 in 2018 with Campos before returning in 2020 with Trident before switching to DAMS this season, amassing 22 points in total across three seasons including his first podium which came in the opening 2021 Monaco Sprint Race.
Speaking about his decision to extend his stay in F2 with DAMS, Nissany said; “I’m extremely happy to continue with DAMS, we have become a family which has made me feel very confident and comfortable.”
Nissany also is eager to make progress after enduring a tough season as he added; “I’m sure we will carry on with the amazing progress we have achieved so far, constantly pushing ourselves upwards.
“I’m really focused on continuing my development within the team throughout the new season and getting some solid results next year.”
DAMS Co-Team Owners, Gregory and Olivier Driot added that they’re “very happy” to retain Nissany after building “a strong relationship” with the Israelian this season.
Gregory and Olivier though iterated that both DAMS and Nissany have separate goals in 2022 but are eager to build on “very strong performances” of this season, despite failing to often translate those drives into points.
This season saw three-race weekends introduced which will be dropped in 2022 in favour of a return to a two-race weekend format, following a review into the new format’s success featuring feedback from drivers and teams alike.
Gregory and Olivier therefore are confident that DAMS will be back amongst the frontrunners in 2022, as they explained; “With two races per week instead of three, the new format will make it less unpredictable and it should help us transform our pace into consistent results.”
Nissany has also spent the last two seasons as Test Driver for Williams in F1 which has seen him participate in three Pre/Post season tests and six FP1 sessions on race weekends.
Nissany’s fellow Williams F1 member, Logan Sargeant yesterday was confirmed at Carlin for next season.
