ART Grand Prix is pleased to reveal the identity of its second driver, who will defend the team’s colours in the 2020 Formula Renault Eurocup championship, Paul Aron.
CIK-FIA European karting champion in 2018, the young Estonian being just 14 at the time, had secured two victories and three fastest laps from four races, demonstrating his speed and ability to compete very early in his career.
Paul made a spectacular start in single-seaters last year, managing two major junior championships head-on, Formula 4 Germany and F4 Italy. Claiming several victories, he was also the best rookie in the transalpine championship and finished third overall in the final ranking.
Paul has been a member of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team junior program since 2019.
Paul Aron :
“I am very proud to be working together with ART in the 2020 Formula Renault Eurocup. This is a stepping stone to success and I am sure I can improve myself together with them. In the past, many drivers who were a part of this team went on to greatness and I am looking forward to doing the same thing myself. I had a successful first year in single seaters and I am sure that with ART Grand Prix we can have a second successful year in formula racing. It is an honor to be part of this legendary and historical team and I am very much looking forward to the upcoming season”.
Sébastien Philippe (ART Grand Prix President) :
“Paul is an example of the modern driver, whose talent was expressed very early with a dazzling start to his career. He had a great first season in F4 and is taking another step this year. He is 16, he is very young and his objective, like ours, will be to exploit his potential without burning his wings, to progress throughout the year to finish the season in the top places of a championship that is so full of rising talent”.
