ART Grand Prix is proud to confirm that Léna Bühler will be behind the wheel of one of its three single-seaters entered in the new 100% female championship, the F1 Academy.
A complete athlete, Léna began her sporting career with BMX where she reached an international level before moving into the four-wheel category when she discovered karting back in 2016. Four years later, she moved into motorsport, recording six top 10 finishes in the Spanish Formula 4 championship.
Léna then moved into the Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine where she has competed for the past two seasons and, after being forced to end her program prematurely, she has actively prepared for the rest of her career with this new challenge in the F1 Academy.
“It’s with great pleasure that I will be able to discover the first F1 Academy
championship and even more so with ART Grand Prix, a team with a fantastic record. It will be a great challenge for me and for the team as we learn more about this new single-seater. I am looking forward to coming to grips with it. This will only be my 4th year in a motorsport and I still have a lot to learn, but I am ready to give 100% both mentally and physically to honour the trust ART Grand Prix has in me, together with that of my partners without whom this adventure would not be possible”.
“We are happy to welcome Léna to our team. She will be one of the first 15 drivers to write her name in the history books of the F1 Academy. This corresponds perfectly to the philosophy of ART Grand Prix, which is to help young drivers climb the ladder of the junior formulas which lead to the highest level of motorsport. The team will do everything sportingly, humanly and technically possible to take up this new historic challenge with Léna”
