It's time to be back in action for PREMA Racing as the FIA Formula 2 Championship braces for one of its most anticipated rounds of the year at Spa-Francorchamps. The event on the mighty 7-kilometre track is one of the most exciting for drivers too, and it will be especially true for Mick Schumacher, who delivered his first F3 win there in 2018 before cruising to the title. The 20-year-old German is also coming from his maiden Formula 2 win at Hungaroring, and will thus rely on maximum motivation to continue the great work done.

On the other hand, Indonesian Sean Gelael is looking for stability and hopes for an untroubled weekend after the rough ride of the last few rounds. He is focused on delivering a solid run and pave his way throughout the final part of the year.

René Rosin - Team Principal
"We are aware that the coming round is set to be pivotal in deciding how the final part of the season will unfold, and as we are determined to leave our mark on the next few races, we must line-up for this weekend focused, prepared and ready to make the most out of every single aspect, every single detail. I'm sure that Mick fits this description pretty well, and the win scored in the previous round will help in terms of putting up more steady runs. We are equally supportive to Sean, who didn't have the easiest situation lately, so we hope he will soon be back into a positive comfort zone."
