Boschung was forced to miss the last event at Spa-Francorchamps due to financial issues and was replaced by Red Bull junior Niko Kari.

The 18-year-old, however, announced on social media that he will be back this weekend, racing in the #17 car, alongside regulars Matt Parry and Matevos Isaakyan.

The Swiss driver currently sits ninth in the drivers' standings with 48 points, after taking his maiden win in Austria's sprint race.

Meanwhile, Tunjo will once again vacate his Jenzer seat, having returned for the Belgium round, after missing three race weekends in Britain, Hungary and Germany.

On his return, the Colombian was only able to compete in the feature race, as he was forced to sit out the sprint due to damage to his #19 car.

Thus, the Swiss team will be down to only two cars for the Italian round, with Arjun Maini and Akash Nandy driving.
