Prema Racing Team Principal Rene Rosin added: “We deeply respected Maya as a competitor, and we were always impressed by her potential and achievements.

“We are really delighted to finally get her on board for the second season of F1 Academy, and we think we will do a great job together.

“Our lineup is really promising, with three outstanding racers and the support of three great Formula 1 teams. We are proud of the trust we received and cannot wait for the season to start.”
