Career[edit]

Karting[edit]

Born in Buenos Aires, Lichtenstein began his karting career at the age of ten. He raced primarily in his native Argentina up to 2011, becoming a champion in various regional karting championships.[1]

Early career[edit]

In 2011, Lichtenstein graduated to single-seaters, racing in the Fórmula Metropolitana series. He also competed in the newly created Formula Pilota China championship.[2]

Formula Ford[edit]

For the next year, Lichtenstein moved to Europe to compete in the British Formula Ford Championship with Jamun Racing, with the support of Velociudad Driver Management, who signed him as their first driver for their program designed to support young Argentine talents. He dominated the second half of the season, winning eleven races total and ultimately finishing third overall in the championship.[3]

GP3 Series[edit]

Lichtenstein will step up to the GP3 Series with Carlin in 2013.[4] After the race at the Hungaroring his contract with Carlin has been terminated by the team due to non-payment of outstanding driver fees by Velociudad Driver Management.[5]
