Antonio Fuoco (born 20 May 1996) is a professional Italian racing driver who currently competes in Formula 2 for Charouz Racing System. He is a former member of the Ferrari Driver Academy.[1][2]

Career[edit]

Karting[edit]

Born in Cariati, Fuoco debuted in karting at the age of four and raced in various European championships, working his way up from the junior ranks to progress through to the KF2 category by 2012, when he finished third in WSK Euro Series and fourth in the CIK-FIA European KF2 Championship.[3][4]

Formula Renault[edit]

In 2013, Fuoco graduated to single-seaters, racing in the newly launched Formula Renault 2.0 Alps series for Prema Junior.[5] He won races at Vallelunga, Imola, Monza and Mugello and amassed another three podiums.[6] He also competed in a round of the Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 championship with the team, at Spa-Francorchamps.[7]

Formula Three[edit]

Fuoco stepped up to FIA European Formula Three Championship in 2014, continuing with Prema Powerteam.[8] He finished fifth in the driver standings, with two wins at Silverstone and Spielberg, and 10 podiums out of 33 races.

GP3 Series[edit]

On 23 January 2015, it was announced Fuoco would be racing in the GP3 Series with Carlin Motorsport.[9] Despite scoring two podiums, Fuoco experienced an inconsistent season, including crashes at the Red Bull Ring, the Hungaroring, Spa and Monza.

In February 2016, following Carlin's departure from the series, it was announced Fuoco would be racing for Trident, where he collected his maiden victories and finished third in the championship.

In November 2016, it was announced that Fuoco would graduate to the series, reunite with Prema and partner fellow Ferrari junior and GP3 champion Charles Leclerc for the 2017 season.[10]

Formula One[edit]

On 23 June 2015, Fuoco had his first Formula One test with Ferrari during the 2-day post-Austrian Grand Prix test in Spielberg at the Red Bull Ring.

On 19 January 2019, when Mick Schumacher was confirmed as a Ferrari Driver Academy driver, it was also confirmed that Fuoco was no longer part of the Academy.[2]
