Career[edit]

Formula Ford[edit]

After spending time in karting between 1997 and 2001, Jousse began has circuit racing career in 2002 in the Formula Ford Kent series. In the three races he contested he took three podium finishes, including one race win. In 2003 he moved to the French Formula Ford series, taking a single podium place to finish the year in 9th place. He also took part in the end-of-season Formula Ford Festival at Brands Hatch, finishing in 17th position.

Formula Renault[edit]

For 2004, Jousse moved up to the French Formula Renault 2.0 championship with Hexis Racing. During his first season he took one podium finish to end the year in 14th place. He continued in the series for 2005, switching to the front running SG Formula team. He took three podium places, including a debut win at Magny-Cours, to finish 6th in the standings. He also took part in six Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 races, scoring twelve points on his way to 21st overall.

Jousse stayed in French Formula Renault for a third season in 2006, securing a win and three further podiums on his way to third in the final standings. He also took part in a further two Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 races, although he failed to score a point.

For 2007, Jousse stepped up to the Formula Renault 3.5 Series with the French Tech 1 Racing team. He finished the year in 10th place overall, taking one pole position, a fastest lap and three podium finishes during the season. In a very successful year his team-mate, Portugal's Álvaro Parente, won the drivers' championship with Tech 1 Racing taking the Teams' title.

Jousse stayed with the team for a second season in 2008, where he was joined by fellow countyman and Formula Renault graduate Charles Pic.[1] He finished as runner-up in the championship, behind Giedo van der Garde, after taking six podium places including his first series win in the final round at Barcelona.[2] He also helped Tech 1 Racing secure their second consecutive Teams' championship.

After taking part in off-season GP2 testing with Fisichella Motor Sport and Trident Racing, Jousse joined the newly revived FIA Formula Two Championship for the 2009 season, driving car number four.[3] He finished fifth in standings with a win coming at Donington Park.
