Wolff: Mercedes will wait until after FRECA to decide Antonelli F2 move
Discussions are currently taking place regarding the future of Italian 17-year-old driver Andrea Kimi Antonelli, with the possibility of him skipping Formula 3 and advancing directly to Formula 2. Antonelli is currently leading the FRECA standings and driving for Prema. However, a final decision has yet to be made, and Toto Wolff, team principal of Mercedes, has cautioned against creating excessive hype around young drivers. While Antonelli’s success in lower formulas, including winning the F4 championships, has been impressive, Prema boss Rene Rosin believes it is important for him to progress step by step and gain experience before potentially reaching Formula 1.
