Luca Ghiotto (born 24 February 1995) is an Italian racing driver currently competing in Formula 2 for Campos Racing.

Career[edit]

Karting[edit]

Born in Arzignano, Ghiotto entered karting in 2008, when he took the title in the KF3 class of the Champions Cup,[1] before he finished fourth the following year.[2] Ghiotto remained in the KF3 category until the end of 2010.

Formula Abarth[edit]

In 2011, Ghiotto made his début in single-seaters, taking part in the Formula Abarth series for Prema Powerteam.[3] He finished ninth in the Italian Series standings with a single podium at Misano, while in the European Series he finished sixth with four podiums.[4] He contested a sophomore campaign with the same team in 2012, improving to runner-up spots in both championships.[5]

Formula Renault[edit]

Ghiotto remained with Prema, as they moved to the 2-litre Formula Renault machinery to compete in the final rounds of Formula Renault 2.0 Alps and Formula Renault 2.0 NEC at the end of 2012. For 2013, Ghiotto had full-time campaigns in both Formula Renault 2.0 Alps and the Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0, staying with Prema.[6] He took a podium finish at Le Castellet, as well as a victory at Spa,[7] and finished ninth in the final championship standings. In the Alps series, he scored five wins and finished as runner-up to teammate Antonio Fuoco. Also he won the main race of the Formula Renault 2.0 Pau Trophy.[8]

Ghiotto graduated to the Formula Renault 3.5 Series in 2014, competing for International Draco Racing.[9]

GP3 Series[edit]

Ghiotto made his debut in 2014, with Trident, at Spa, taking pole position on his debut.

He remained with Trident for 2015, taking five victories in the season, but losing the title to Esteban Ocon by eight points.

GP2 Series[edit]

In February 2016, it was announced that Ghiotto would be graduating to the series, whilst continuing his collaboration with Trident. After a shaky start to the season, he claimed his first victory at the sprint race in Sepang and finished eighth in the overall standings.

FIA Formula 2 Championship[edit]

In 2017, Ghiotto switched to Russian Time.[10]

Formula One[edit]

In August 2017, Ghiotto participated in the post-Hungarian Grand Prix test for Williams Martini Racing.[11]
