ART Grand Prix is pleased to announce the addition of Anthoine Hubert in its 2017 GP3 Series line-up. After competing in karting at a national and international level, the 20-year-old Frenchman began his career in motorsport with a title in French Formula 4 in 2013. After two seasons of Formula Renault 2.0 highlighted by a 5th place in 2015, Anthoine had a remarkable year in Formula 3 in 2016, securing a victory and often running at the same level as his more highly-experienced teammate.
At the end of 2016, Anthoine took part in the GP3 test days in Abu Dhabi and positively impressed ART Grand Prix by recording good lap times and adapting quickly and efficiently to the car and the team's working methods.
Anthoine Hubert:
“I am really happy to join GP3 Series with ART Grand Prix! This is an excellent career opportunity because it is the most titled team of the championship. My ambition is to work on my integration into the team this winter in order to get the best out of the package and to be ready to take up the GP3 challenge in the first races of the year as well as fighting with the front-runners. I thank ART Grand Prix for this opportunity, as well as my partners and in particular Eurodatacar, the Lamirault Group, the FFSA and KLM taking care of my management.”
Sébastien Philippe:
“ART Grand Prix is proud to have one of the best young French drivers among its ranks. We have followed Anthoine's career development for several years now and we have noticed his intelligent approach to racing, which will be an important asset for a championship as hotly contested as GP3.”
