Friday, 23 June: Maverick F1 Racing has confirmed that they will run a third boat with Beranger Robart joining the team at the Grand Prix of France in Evian on 1-2 July, round 2 of the UIM F1H2O World Championship.
Robart, runner-up in the F4 world championship in 2007 and champion of France in F2 in 2008 lines up for his F1H2O debut alongside fellow countrymen, team leader Cedric Deguisne and Amaury Jousseaume.
Maverick F1 Racing line up for their home Grand Prix for the first time as a fully-fledged ‘full time’ F1H2O Team, with Cedric Deguisne returning to the venue where he enjoyed his best ever result on the tour finishing a fine fourth last year and has been the first Frenchman home in Evian for the last two years. He will be looking to build on a solid season opener in Portimao after finishing in sixth despite technical problems, with teammate Amaury Jousseaume looking to make up for the disappointment of retiring after 27 laps on his F1H2O debut and put his first championship points on the board.
