Michael Ammermüller (born 14 February 1986) is a race car driver born in Pocking, Germany.

Career[edit]

Ammermüller driving for Carlin Motorsport in the Donington Park round of the 2007 Formula Renault 3.5 Series season.

In 2004 he drove the number three car in German Formula Renault, as well as competing in Formula Renault 2000 Eurocup. In 2006, he competed in the GP2 Series for Arden International.

As a member of the Red Bull Junior Team, after Christian Klien was dropped by the Red Bull Racing Formula One team for the final three races of the 2006 season, the team's third driver, Robert Doornbos, was promoted to the second race seat. This left a vacancy in the team, and Ammermüller was promoted to the position of third driver for the last three races of the season. He tested the car for the first time on 14 September, clocking up the miles necessary for an FIA Super Licence.[1]

After acting as Third Driver for the last three Grands Prix of 2006, Ammermüller was signed by Red Bull as a full-time tester for 2007.[2]

Ammermüller's 2007 GP2 Series season was disrupted by injury, and he was rested in favour of Sébastien Buemi. However, Sebastian Vettel's move to the Scuderia Toro Rosso F1 team left his Formula Renault 3.5 Series seat vacant, which Ammermüller took.[3] As of 2008, he races in the International Formula Master series.

A1 Grand Prix[edit]

Ammermüller has driven in A1 Grand Prix for Germany. In the 2007-08 season's third race at Sepang, he punted three cars off at turn two in three separate incidents. The first was to take third from Canada in the sprint race. In the feature race, he did it to Britain and got a drive through penalty. After this, he did the same to the Czech Republic, earning him the nickname "Hammermüller".

He then was disqualified but 3 weeks later he scored his maiden victory at Zhuhai.

Racing record[edit]
