The 20-year-old racer from Iserlohn, Germany, will enter the 2020 Formula 3 Championship with Team Trident.

The Milan-based squad is delighted to welcome back a promising racer, who previously cruised to three wins, two poles and four podium finishes in the 2018 GP3 Series.

There is always a tiny bit of regret when a success story comes to its closure, but when Team Trident and David Beckman parted ways at the end of the outstanding 2018 season, both parties were aware they had one more mission to accomplish in the future: the chase for the FIA Formula 3 Championship.

After more than one year, the challenge is on again, and the 20-year-old German will make his return under the Team Trident banner to race alongside Olli Caldwell and Lirim Zendeli in a highly-competitive line-up.

Beckman joined Team Trident for the first time during the 2018 season, in the round held in August at Budapest, and quickly found perfect chemistry with the operation led by Maurizio Salvadori.

The team enabled Beckmann to express his full potential, which included two pole positions and two Feature Race wins on some extremely challenging and world-famous tracks like Spa-Francorchamps and Monza.

Another win came at Sochi in Russia, at the end of an amazing comeback. Beckmann also ran for Team Trident in the 2019 Macau Grand Prix, ending up in 9th place.

David Beckmann said: "I am very motivated and proud to be back with Trident, a team that always believed in me and supported me in achieving extremely positive results."

"I established a strong relationship with the Team Trident family, so I am looking forward to reaching even more ambitious goals soon."

Team Manager Giacomo Ricci added: "We are delighted to welcome David Beckmann back to our team."

"We always had great chemistry with him, and I am confident that we will be once again among the contenders for the FIA Formula 3 Championship, a pivotal series in the motorsport ladder."

"We will need to put up our maximum effort and to look at every possible element. This series is incredibly competitive, and even the slightest detail can be decisive."
