Raffaele "Lello" Marciello (Italian pronunciation: [raffaˈɛle marˈtʃɛllo];[1] born 17 December 1994 in Zurich, Switzerland) is a professional Italian racing driver and former member of the Ferrari Driver Academy. He was the 2013 European Formula Three Champion. He will become reserve and test driver for the Sauber Formula One team in 2015, as well as racing for Trident Racing in the GP2 Series.

Career[edit]

Karting[edit]

Marciello debuted in karting in 2005 and raced in various European championships, working his way up from the junior ranks to progress through to the KF2 category by 2010.

Formula Abarth[edit]

In 2010, Marciello graduated to single-seaters, racing in the newly launched Formula Abarth series in Italy for JD Motorsport. He won opening race at Misano and race at Varano and amassed another two podiums it brought him third place in standings.[2] Also he and fellow Formula Abarth champion Brandon Maïsano became members of the Ferrari Driver Academy.[3]

Formula Three[edit]

Marciello stepped up to Italian Formula Three Championship in 2011 and joined Prema Powerteam. He claimed wins at Misano and Adria and another four podiums, finishing third and losing rookie title to Michael Lewis, but overcoming Maïsano by seven points.[4]

In 2012 Marciello continued his collaboration with Prema Powerteam into Formula 3 Euro Series.[5] and the revived FIA European Formula Three Championship. In FIA F3 he finished 2nd in the championship, with nine podiums including seven wins. In Euro Series he finished 3rd with ten podiums and six wins. In both championships he scored more wins than anybody else.

He remained in F3 for 2013, and emerged as a pre-season favourite following his impressive results in the previous year and dominant performances in pre-season testing.[6]

Toyota Racing Series[edit]

During the 2012 off-season Marciello competed in New Zealand-based Toyota Racing Series, taking ninth place in the championship with a win at Hampton Downs.[7]

GP2 Series[edit]

Marciello had been looking to be driving in the GP2 Series or World Series by Renault for 2014 after testing both cars in Catalunya in October 2013.[8]

On 20 January 2014, the Ferrari Driver Academy announced Marciello will be racing in GP2 in 2014. However. they did not confirm the team he will be competing with.[9] On 18 February, it was announced he would be driving for the Racing Engineering team.[10]

Marciello achieved his first GP2 victory in the feature race at Spa-Francorchamps after an intense fight with McLaren junior driver Stoffel Vandoorne in the closing stages.

He joined Trident Racing for 2015,[11] but struggled to capitalize on his 2015 debut, finishing seventh overall.

Marciello will race with Russian Time, replacing the Campos-bound Mitch Evans, in the 2016 season.

Formula One[edit]

On 26 November 2014, Marciello made his Formula One debut behind the wheel of the Ferrari F14 T, during that day's post-season test at the Yas Marina Circuit. He set the second fastest time of the session, half a second adrift of Pascal Wehrlein in the Mercedes F1 W05 Hybrid.[12] On 31 December 2014 it was announced that Marciello had signed as test and reserve driver for the Sauber Formula One team for 2015.[13][14] In January 2016, it was announced that Marciello had been dropped by Sauber[15] and had split with the Ferrari Driver Academy for personal reasons.[16]
