The 2017 GP3 Champion is moving up to FIA Formula 2 for the up-coming season. George stormed to the GP3 title after taking four victories and three further podiums over the course of last year.
It was a big season for George, as he also got his first experience driving a Mercedes F1 car, getting behind the wheel of the W08 at the post-Hungarian Grand Prix test. He also made FP1 outings with Force India in Brazil and Abu Dhabi.
Following on from his success in 2017, George is making the step up to F2 for this season, remaining with ART Grand Prix - the team he took the GP3 title with.
"I am very happy to be able to race in Formula 2 while continuing to drive for ART Grand Prix," George said. "We had a very successful year together last season and so it makes sense to continue working together and seek out new successes.
"With the introduction of a new Formula 2 car, it will be challenging for all the teams to optimise the set-up from the start of the season, but I have every confidence in ART. I cannot wait to take part in the first race and fight against some of the best drivers and teams at the pinnacle of junior motorsport."
