The Brazilian has been retained by the Czech team for 2022, where he will team up with Turkish e-sports participant who became racer Cem Bolukbassi.
The 20-year-old, who is the grandson of two-time Formula One champion Emerson Fitipaldi, has joined Charuz to compete in F2 in 2021, starting with Monza in September, starting the year in races for Charuz in FIA Formula 3.
Fitipaldi will return to drive a Formula 2 car after finishing last season aside after a nasty crash in the penultimate round of the year in Saudi Arabia.
The invisible Fitipaldi knocked down Sauber junior driver Theo Purshar, who stopped his ART car near the front of the net, resulting in a 72G crash.
While Purshar came out of the incident altogether, Fitipaldi suffered a broken heel, facial injuries and bruises that excluded him from the Abu Dhabi final and post-season trials.
On the eve of his first full season in Formula 2, Fitipaldi is aiming to regularly get into the top 10 this year after the crash became the best of his career seventh in the sprint race in Jeddah.
“For me, it’s a pleasure and an honor to be able to continue my adventure in Formula 2 with the Charouz Racing System,” Fitipaldi said.
“Last season they gave me the opportunity to make my debut in this category after a good first part of the season in Formula 3, and it will allow me and the team to immediately work on performance from the first test sessions.

“It will be a long and demanding championship, and the level of competitiveness has never been as high as this year, so it is a great advantage that you do not need to spend the first test days to get acquainted with the car.
“We are definitely looking to be constantly present in the top 10 positions and we will definitely try to take every opportunity to take a few places on the podium and maybe win.”
Team owner Antonin Charuz added: “We are happy with the team that we can work with Enzo again next season.
“Last year, he proved he deserves a chance to move from Formula 3 to Formula 2, despite the misfortune that befell him in Jeddah.
“Now that he’s back in shape, I’m sure it will only push him to show even more what he’s capable of.
“Starting the season in an environment he is already familiar with is definitely an advantage for both the team and the driver, and we will do our best to take advantage of this condition to find speed and get into the top 10.”
Only one seat in Trident remains to be filled to complete the 2022 F2 network, and the season is set to begin in Bahrain from 18 to 20 March.
