ART Grand Prix is delighted to announce the continuation of its collaboration with Théo Pourchaire in the upcoming 2023 FIA Formula 2 championship. At just 19 years of age, the young Frenchman rose through the ranks of karting, winning one title every year between 2013 and 2016. His first year of motorsport, in 2018, ended with a French Formula 4 Junior championship title and 14 victories from 18 races.
The following year, Théo hit the international scene with the same success, this time taking the ADAC F4 championship. Runner up in Formula 3 in 2020, his first year in the discipline and his first with ART Grand Prix, he moved up to Formula 2 the following year. Vice Champion in 2022, he achieved 5 victories in the category.
“I couldn’t be happier to extend my career in this top-level Formula 2 championship with ART Grand Prix, which has become a family to me. We have had intense moments over the past three years and it’s important to prepare for the 2023 championship with a team that knows me and knows how to put me in the best possible situations. We may have lacked success last year, but we gained experience that makes us even stronger. I will do everything I can to bring the title to ART Grand Prix this season”.
“Théo will still be one of the youngest drivers on the grid, but he has acquired a technical and personal maturity which, combined with his speed and his combativeness, will be a major asset to be consistently at the front of the field and will help the team in its technical focus. Last season showed us how much every detail counts and after two seasons in Formula 2 with Théo, ART Grand Prix’s mission will be to master everything in our power to optimize our chances of winning the title in 2023”.
