Barnicoat, a protege of the Racing Steps Foundation, was originally to sign with Prema Powerteam - with RSF's Derek Walters having confirmed the planned move.

However, the deal with the Italian team, which had run another RSF driver in Jake Dennis in 2015, was called off, and Barnicoat will now make the jump with Hitech instead.

19-year-old Barnicoat won the Formula Renault 2.0 NEC series in his first season in cars in 2014 and raced in Eurocup FR2.0 last year, finishing fourth.

At Hitech, he joins fellow FR2.0 graduate Nikita Mazepin, as well as sophomore racer George Russell.

Prema, meanwhile, has yet to announce its fourth driver for 2016, with Nick Cassidy and Guan Yu Zhou among the drivers who have tested for the squad in the off-season.
