Ben Hanley is a British racing driver who competed in the first part of the 2008 GP2 Series season. He is also a member of the Renault F1 team's young driver program.

Career[edit]

Hanley had a successful career in karting, winning a number of championships and individual races and coming close to winning the Karting World Championship. Hanley raced in the Formula Renault 3.5 Series in 2006 and 2007, and he finished as runner-up in the championship in 2007. He was signed to drive for Campos Racing in early 2008.[1] He will be partnered by Vitaly Petrov. He also joined the team for the second round of the 2008 GP2 Asia Series, scoring a podium finish in his first GP2 race. After three races of the season Hanley and Campos parted company, but he secured a drive with Durango before the next race.[2] He replaced Marcello Puglisi, who was in turn deputising for the injured Davide Valsecchi. However, this was only a one-off drive, as Valsecchi returned to racing action at the next round of the championship.[3] He began 2009 without a drive, but joined the Euroseries 3000 mid-season and won during his first event in the category. He also returned to karting in 2009, finishing third in the Karting World Championship.[4]
