The 17-year-old Frenchman Theo Pourchaire will make his F2 debut in the final races of the season to be held in Bahrain in a month and a half.
Pourchaire is a member of Sauber’s Junior Academy, a team that competes in F1 under the name Alfa Romeo, and behind him is a short but impressive career. He made his Formula One debut in 2018, driving a French F4. He won the junior championship in that category and then in 2019 won the German ADAC F4 ahead of Red Bull junior Dennis Hauger and Ferrari’s Arthur Leclerc, Charles ’younger brother.
This year he made his F3 debut and impressed again - at just 16 he achieved his first victory, and by the end of the season he had won once more and in a close fight for the title remained three points behind champion Oscar Piastri.
The team he will debut for will be HWA, where he will replace Jake Hughes, also an F3 driver, who made his debut in the last round by replacing Giuliano Alesi, now the MP driver.
“We are pleased to provide such an extremely talented young driver with his first steps in Formula 2,” said Thomas Strick, HWA Team Leader.
“Theo’s talent is undeniable. The success he has achieved in his growing career speaks for itself. ”
"We are excited about his debut in Bahrain. In previous years, he has proven several times that he can quickly cope in a new category. "
At the age of 17, Pourchaire will be the youngest driver on the grid in Bahrain, and his teammate will be Artyom Markelov - the oldest on the grid at the age of 26.
