Robert Mikhailovich Shwartzman (Russian: Ро́берт Миха́йлович Шва́рцман, IPA: [ˈrobʲert mʲɪˈxajləvʲɪtɕ ˈʂvartsmɐn], born 16 September 1999) is a Russian racing driver currently competing in the FIA Formula 3 Championship. He is a member of the Ferrari Driver Academy.[1] He is the 2018 Toyota Racing Series champion.[2]

Career[edit]

Karting[edit]

Born in Saint Petersburg, Shwartzman began karting in 2004 at the age of five. Throughout a seven-year career of karting professionally, he claimed karting titles across Europe (predominantly in Italy).

Formula 4[edit]

In 2014, Shwartzman graduated to single-seaters, partaking in six races of the Italian F4 Championship with Cram Motorsport, finishing sixteenth overall.

The following year, Shwartzman partook in the championship full-time with Mücke Motorsport, claiming two wins and finishing third in the standings behind the Prema Powerteam duo of Ralf Aron and Guanyu Zhou. He also partook in the inaugural ADAC Formula 4 championship, finishing fourth in the standings.

Formula Renault[edit]

In 2016, Shwartzman moved to Formula Renault 2.0 with reigning series champions Josef Kaufmann Racing after testing with the team at Motorland Aragon.[3] He claimed two victories in the Northern European Cup and finished sixth in the standings. In the Eurocup, Shwartzman finished eighth.

For 2017, Shwartzman stayed in Formula Renault 2.0, but decided to switch to the R-ace GP team.[4] He lost thirteen points to his teammate Will Palmer and finished in the third place in the driver standings, but was able to win six races, having podium finish at all rounds excepting Red Bull Ring and Le Castellet.

GP3 Series[edit]

In November 2016, Shwartzman was listed among the drivers partaking in the post-season test at Yas Marina with Koiranen GP.[5]

Toyota Racing Series[edit]

Shwartzman made his Toyota Racing Series debut during the 2018 off-season, competing for M2 Competition.[6] He finished all fifteen races in the top-five and was the only driver in the season to do so. He won the Denny Hulme Memorial Trophy and the series title, ahead of the M2 teammates Richard Verschoor and Marcus Armstrong, who have raced in the series in 2017.[7][2]

FIA Formula 3 European Championship[edit]

In September 2017, Shwartzman tested the European Formula 3 machinery with Prema Powerteam.[8] After his tests with Prema he was included into the Ferrari Driver Academy.[1] In December 2017, it was confirmed that he will race for Prema in 2018 FIA Formula 3 European Championship.[9] Shwartzman took his first European Formula 3 win in the third Spielberg race.[10] With his second win in the season finale he outscored another Ferrari Driver Academy member Marcus Armstrong in the drivers' standings, completing the top-three with claiming the rookie title.[11]

FIA Formula 3 Championship[edit]

Following the merger of the FIA Formula 3 European Championship and GP3 Series into the new FIA Formula 3 Championship in 2019, Prema announced Shwartzman as one of its drivers for the inaugural season.[12] Shwartzman qualified on pole for the first Barcelona race and initially finished the race in second before being promoted to race winner following a time penalty to Christian Lundgaard.
