René Binder (born January 1, 1992 in Innsbruck) is an Austrian racing driver. He is the nephew of former Formula One driver Hans Binder, and his father, Franz, was also a racing driver.[1]

Career[edit]

Binder began his racing career in karting in 2002, remaining in the category until 2008.[2] During this time, he finished third in the German Junior Kart Championship in 2007 and was runner-up in the German Challenger Kart Championship in 2008. In 2009 he began his formula racing career by competing in the ADAC Formel Masters series for the Abt Sportsline team. Whilst his teammate Daniel Abt won the championship, Binder finished the season in seventh position with three podium finishes. Binder then moved up to the German Formula Three Championship: in 2010, he drove for Motopark Academy and finished in twelfth place in the championship, with a best result of third position; 2011 saw him move to the Jo Zeller Racing team,[3] for whom he improved to eighth place despite missing a round of the championship; and for the 2012 season he is driving for the Van Amersfoort Racing team. In 2011 he also competed in one round of the FIA Formula Two Championship, held at the Austrian Red Bull Ring.

Binder made his GP2 Series début in the tenth round of the 2012 season, held at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps. He replaced Giancarlo Serenelli in the Lazarus team, where he partnered Sergio Canamasas.[4] He did not score any championship points.
