Lucas V-Prix have this evening announced their driver line-up for 2020 in a glitzy event taking place at Lucas' mansion.
Reports from the paddock have confirmed that within the mists of the teams leaving for the 2020 season, new and upcoming teams from other disciplines have shown interest in the sport with many seats to be filled.
Downton have this morning confirmed the rumours that Matteo Zetticci has signed a full-time contract with the team, and will join Downton for 2020.
Bradley Downton has labelled the performance of his drivers Nathaniel Powers and Klaas van Snelheid in the Belgian V-Prix as "unacceptable" and "a disgrace".
Klaas van Snelheid has taken pole position for the Belgian V-Prix ahead of Tumo Kinnumen, while title rivals Nathaniel Powers and Enrique Ruiz struggled in fifth and seventh, the latter completing just three laps before colliding with Elroy Wagner and ending both their sessions.
The German was left unable to set a time and will start last, while Mario Juan Lopez proved the star of qualifying, and will start third - his highest grid position to date.
Nathaniel Powers was fastest in practice once again for Downton, topping the opening session at the famous Spa-Francorchamps circuit ahead of rivals Enrique Ruiz and Klaas van Snelheid.
In the wake of the news that popular new team Andromeda will be leaving the sport after only one season, it seems that Formula Virtual is looking for new teams to replace the Brazilian outfit. At this time, it’s mere speculation as to whether there is just one new team that could be joining the virtuous series, or whether multiple teams could be considered.
Andromeda ABR, by Hector Seibel, has been declared bankrupt by the Rio de Janeiro Court.
