"It's taken a lot of hard work but it's great that it's all paid off and we can go racing. I've got a lot to learn after missing the first couple of rounds and I've also not been to the Nűrburgring before, but we've got two sessions to learn the track and I'm confident that I can build on my pre-season pace and finish in the top 10."

Zimbabwean Axcil Jefferies becomes the second African racer to compete in the FIA Formula Two Championship after Ricardo Teixeira who raced in 2010 and now competes in GP2.

The 18-year-old began karting in 2007 in the Rotax Max Euro Junior series followed by the Northern Regions karting championships in 2008, finishing seventh.

In 2009 he made his single seater debut in the Formula BMW Pacific championship ending an impressive third overall with two wins and six podiums to his name. After a second season in Formula BMW Pacific, he was forced to take a step back from racing due to budget restraints but returns to F2 this year full of gusto.

Axcil is also a Goodwill Ambassador for the charity Childline.
