Tatiana Calderón Noguera (born March 10, 1993) is a Colombian racing driver who is the test driver for the Alfa Romeo Formula One team and competes for the Drago Corse with ThreeBond squad in the Super Formula Championship and for the Richard Mille Racing operation in the European Le Mans Series.

Born into a family of car dealers, Calderón began in go-karts at the age of nine, and was the first woman to win national karting championships in Colombia and the United States. She progressed to car racing at the age of 17 in the Star Mazda Championship, taking two podiums in the 2011 season, a victory in the 2014 Florida Winter Series, and was runner-up in the 2015–16 MRF Challenge Formula 2000 Championship. Calderón was the first woman to stand on the podium in the British Formula 3 International Series and the first to lead a lap in the FIA Formula 3 European Championship. From 2016 to 2018, she competed in the GP3 Series and drove in the 2019 FIA Formula 2 Championship. Calderón has been employed by the Sauber Formula One team (later Alfa Romeo Racing) as a development and later a test driver.

Early and personal life[edit]

Tatiana Calderón Noguera was born in the Colombian capital city of Bogotá on 10 March 1993 to Alberto Calderón Palau and María Clara Noguera Calderón.[1][2] Alberto is the first cousin of Juan Manuel Santos, a former President of Colombia. María is the daughter of Rodrigo Noguera Laborde, the co-founder of the Sergio Arboleda University.[3][4] Both of her parents operate a Kia Motors dealership in Bogotá.[5] Calderón has an elder sister Paula,[6] who co-manages the career of her younger sibling with former driver Fernando Plata,[5] and has a younger brother, Felipe.[7] She was educated at the Colegio Helvetia in Bogotá from 1997 to 2011, learning English and German, along with her native Spanish,[8] and accommodated her racing with her education, sometimes having to miss weeks of school.[4][9] Calderón played football, tennis, field hockey, golf and tried horse riding before settling on motor racing at the age of nine.[7][10] Since 2012, she has lived in the Spanish capital of Madrid.[11]

Karting[edit]

2002–2008[edit]

Calderón was four years old when she had her first experience of driving in the streets of Bogotá by sitting on her father's lap and hold the steering wheel of the family car.[12] She began competing in go-karts at the age of nine by visiting a rental race track north of Bogotá in the city's 170th street with her sister Paula and some of her friends.[2][3][9] The two siblings went to the track every night after school and during the weekends.[6] Around the age of ten Calderón began seriously considering a possible motor racing career.[7] She persuaded her father greatly to purchase a green go-kart[2][9] and a 50cc motorcycle for use on a personal basis on her family's farm and he educated her on racing's mechanical aspects.[8][13] Calderón's mother tried to sway her away from racing because she believed it was too dangerous,[8] though she later supported her daughter's career choice on the condition she maintained good grades in school.[14] She was inspired by Juan Pablo Montoya's achievements and the three-time Formula One World Champion Ayrton Senna.[5][7]

As she began winning races, Calderón was regularly rammed by her male rivals and she retaliated in response to demonstrate that she was undeterred by them.[15] In the 2005 season, she won the EasyKart National Championship,[16] making her the first woman to win a Colombian national karting championship in history.[17] The following year, she was runner-up in the EasyKart National Championship, placed third in the Stars of Karting Este Division and was the Rotax Junior Division champion of the Colombian Kart Championship.[16] The success led to Calderón receiving her first few outings racing cars, at the age of 14, initially competing in a Kia Picanto that she shared with her sister Paula.[5] Around this time, the owners of her local go-kart track later allowed her to drive a professional four-stroke go-kart after she began winning races.[5] In 2008, she became the first female driver to win the Snap-On-Stars of Karting Divisional Championship-JICA Eastern Championship and was the IAME International Challenge champion.[18] The former achievement made Calderón the first woman champion of a national American karting series.[9]

Racing career[edit]

2009–2014[edit]

After becoming the Snap-On-Stars of Karting Divisional Championship-JICA Eastern Championship, she told her parents of her decision not to further her education by enrolling at university and focus solely on advancing her racing career.[7] Calderón had more success in 2009 when she made her sports car debut, coming second in the Radical European Master Series — SR5 with one class victory, ten category podium finishes and a total of 240 points accrued for the PoleVision team.[19] She finished second in that year's Colombian Rotax Senior Max Challenge.[16][18] Aged 17, Calderón moved into open-wheel racing, driving in the Star Mazda Championship in 2010 for Juncos Racing in its No. 25 car.[20] She had five top-ten finishes, with a best of seventh in the first Autobahn Country Club race. In thirteen races, Calderón finished with 320 points for a final championship position of tenth.[19] She also won the Colombian Rotax Championship that year.[16]

Calderón stayed with Juncos Racing for the 2011 Star Mazda Championship and her car number was changed to 10.[21][22] She had her best series finish of third in the season's second round at Barber Motorsports Park,[23] and repeated the feat four races later at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.[24] These results made Calderón the first woman to stand on the podium in Star Mazda Championship history.[25] Her final championship position was sixth with 322 points scored.[19] Around this time, she began working with racer Andy Soucek to better her driving technique,[26] and Calderón entered the final three weekends of the 2011 European F3 Open Championship for Team West-Tec in October, scoring three points from an eighth-place finish in the second Circuit de Catalunya race, placing 21st in the drivers' standings with three points.[27] She entered into discussions to compete in Indy Lights for 2012 but she declined due to her and her father's dislike of oval tracks.[26][28]

That year, she competed in the whole season of the 2012 European F3 Open Championship with EmiliodeVillota Motorsport with team owner Emilio de Villota as her race engineer.[29] Calderón finished the season with eight top-ten finishes for ninth in the championship and 56 points scored.[19] In October, she drove the final two weekends of the 2012 Formula Renault 2.0 Alps Series for AV Formula,[30] failing to score any points for a placing of 33rd in the standings.[19] Two months later, Calderón flew to Colombia to enter the 6 Hours of Bogotá in a No. 91 Radical car she shared with Juan Camilo Acosta, Juan Esteban García and Luis Carlos Martínez, finishing third overall and second in class.[31]

For the 2013 season, she joined Double R Racing for both the FIA Formula 3 European Championship and the British Formula 3 International Series.[28] Before that, Calderón entered the five-round, fifteen-race New Zealand-based Toyota Racing Series with ETEC Motorsport as the series' sole female driver.[32] That year, she became the first (and only) woman to stand on the overall podium in British Formula 3 history with a third-place finish at the Nürburgring round. She had tyre issues during her European Series campaign, and Double R Racing's inexperience competing in the championship meant she scored no points in the season.[28] In July, Calderón finished 20th in the Masters of Formula 3 at Circuit Zandvoort.[33] In late October, she tested the Auto GP car at a two-day test session at the Circuito de Jerez.[34] She made a guest appearance for EmiliodeVillota Motorsport in the season-ending European F3 Open Championship round at the Circuit de Catalunya but was illegible to score points.[35]

Competing for Jo Zeller Racing at the Hockenheimring in 2014

During the 2014 Florida Winter Series Calderón won her first open-wheel race at Sebring International Raceway from pole position in its second race.[36] She finished fifth in the championship standings with two more top five finishes.[19] Not long after, Calderón returned to Europe for the EuroFormula Open Winter series round at Circuit Paul Ricard, finishing fourth for EmiliodeVillota Motorsport.[37] She had originally signed for Signature Team days before the 2014 FIA Formula 3 European Championship began; a lack of testing time and the misgivings of her being noncompetitive due to the car's under-powered engine led her to join Jo Zeller Racing.[a][28][39] During the season, in which she was advised by Anthony Hamilton, the father of racer Lewis Hamilton,[4] regular points-scoring finishes put her 15th in the drivers' standings.[28] In November, Calderón became the first woman to contest the Macau Grand Prix since Cathy Muller in 1983,[40] finishing 13th.[41]

2015–2018[edit]

Calderón as a Carlin driver in 2015

In late 2014, Calderón began to be mentored and advised by driver Susie Wolff.[28] She moved to Carlin for the 2015 FIA Formula 3 European Championship after testing with the team in December 2014.[42] Calderón briefly led the rain-affected third race at Spa-Francorchamps, becoming the first woman to lead a series race..[43] She scored no points to go unranked in the 33-race championship.[19] During the 2015–2016 season, Calderón participated in the MRF Challenge Formula 2000 Championship for MRF Racing.[44] In the series, she developed a reputation for being a risky overtaker because the cars' low downforce allowed them to run close together.[45] She consistently finished in the top five, winning at the Dubai Autodrome and finished runner-up to Pietro Fittipaldi in the points standings.[44]

Due to new sporting regulations introduced by motorsport's world governing body, the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile, at the end of 2015 limiting drivers to three complete seasons in European F3,[46] Calderón was ineligible to enter the series for a fourth consecutive season. She instead contested the 2016 GP3 Series for Arden International and was the team's first woman driver in its 19-year history.[47][48] She had tested a World Series Formula V8 3.5 car with Pons Racing at Ciudad del Motor de Aragón in November 2015 before choosing GP3 two months later because it was faster.[47] With two tenth-place finishes at the Hockenheimring and the Autodromo Nazionale Monza, Calderón was 21st in the drivers' championship with two points. She had a slow qualifying pace and an average starting position of 17th.[49] Calderón earned one podium finish at the Red Bull Ring and 66 points for Teo Martín Motorsport and then RP Motorsport in six rounds of the Euroformula Open Championship.[19]

At the end of 2016, Calderón was introduced to the Sauber Formula One team principal Monisha Kaltenborn and began working for Sauber as a development driver.[5] In addition to continuing her GP3 schedule, she conducted tests in Sauber's simulator and joined them at race weekends.[50] Calderón moved from Arden to DAMS for the 2017 season.[51] She had a best result of seventh at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza feature race and was eighth at the Circuto de Jerez to finish 18th in the drivers' championship with seven points.[52] Calderón drove in the series-ending round of the World Series Formula V8 3.5 at Bahrain International Circuit in place of Damiano Fioravanti at RP Motorsport.[53] She finished third in the second race, earning the first podium for a woman in the history of the championship.[54]

Driving for Jenzer Motorsport at the Red Bull Ring in 2018.

She moved to Jenzer Motorsport for the 2018 GP3 Series after DAMS left the championship; she tested for Jenzer at a test session at the Yas Marina Circuit.[55] Sauber promoted Calderón as its test driver the following month. She spent time in Sauber's simulator and engineers coached her at its headquarters and race circuits.[b][56] In GP3, her performance improved from 2017, scoring points in seven races for eleven points and a championship placing of 16th.[57] After Calderón expressed her hope of testing for Sauber before the year's conclusion,[58] she drove the team's C37 as part of a promotional filming day at the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez on 30 October, becoming the first Latin American woman to drive a Formula One vehicle.[59] Calderón utilised a 2013 C32 in a two-day test session at the Fiorano Circuit the next month.[60] On 16 December, she tested the Techeetah DS E-TENSE FE19 electric car at the inaugural Formula E in-season test in Ad Diriyah,[61] and drove for the team again in the championship's rookie test at Marrakesh's Circuit International Automobile Moulay El Hassan on 13 January 2019.[62]

2019–present[edit]

Calderón returned to Arden for the 2019 FIA Formula 2 Championship and the first woman to drive in the series.[63] The renamed Alfa Romeo Racing team retained her as its test driver for the year.[64] She stated her two Formula One test sessions assisted her acclimatisation to Formula 2.[65] At the Baku feature race, Calderón became the first woman in history to lead a lap in Formula 2.[66] Poor qualifying results due to a lack of tyre preparation led her to employ different strategies to advance her position in a feature race and she had two race engineers over the season.[67] Calderón scored no points and was 22nd in the drivers' standings.[68] Late in the year, she obtained sponsorship to contest the season-ending Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez double header round of the Porsche Supercup in Team Project 1's No. 24 911 GT3 Cup car. Calderón attained a best finish of 25th in the second race.[69][70]

Following the purchase of Arden's Formula 2 2020 entry by HWA Racelab and signed drivers Giuliano Alesi and Artem Markelov, Calderón left the team and sought other career routes in either American or endurance motor racing.[71] As a result Calderón decided to leave Formula 2 to join the Super Formula Championship with Drago Corse with ThreeBond for the 2020 season. Team owner Ryo Michigami negotiated with her late in December 2019 and concluded with an agreement not long after. Michigami selected Calderón over fellow driver Nobuharu Matsushita for the seat and she spoke to him regularly about the SF19 car.[72] In addition to her Super Formula seat she remained at the Alfa Romeo Formula One team as a test driver and worked with the reserve driver Robert Kubica to develop its C39 car. Calderón was also appointed an ambassador for the team.[73]

She entered the 2020 24 Hours of Daytona (part of the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship) with GEAR Racing.[74] Calderón was paired with fellow female drivers Rahel Frey, Katherine Legge and Christina Nielsen in the No. 19 Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evo.[c][75] She prepared for the race by increasing her fitness regime and sleeping less in case she was told to drive early in the morning.[76] Multiple car issues caused Calderón and her co-drivers to finish 16th in class and complete 471 laps.[77][78] She later co-drove a Le Mans Prototype 2 (LMP2) Oreca 07-Gibson in the European Le Mans Series with Legge and Sophia Flörsch at the all-female Signatech-run Richard Mille Racing team in 2020.[79]

Driving style[edit]

Calderón describes herself as a smooth driver; she feels she reacts better to more powerful cars and when competing in wet-weather conditions.[5] Since women have less muscle mass than men, she undertakes intensive training to be able to handle a high-performance racing car and grew her neck 9 cm (3.5 in) to deal with the high amount of g-force felt by the driver.[61] Calderón's short stature means she finds it difficult to locate the correct angle and get the most power for her arms. She could not have a rest inserted at the back of her helmet due to restrictions in the GP3 Series sporting regulations. Additionally, Calderón spent half of the 2016 GP3 Series locating her preferred seating position, during which she made contact with her legs in the act of steering and thus made the decision to adjust the position of her car pedals to increase her comfort.[80]
