Theo Pourchaire : In 2019, the French driver joined the Sauber Academy and on Friday in Texas, he will drive Valtteri Bottas’s Alfa Romeo C42 in the first practice session. Pourchaire, who is now second in the Formula 2 standings, will be one of Alfa Romeo’s backup drivers in 2019.
Team Principal Frederic Vasseur commented, “Theo has been providing fantastic results throughout this season and in prior years.”
“We have been working with him closely as a member of our Academy for about four years now, and we have been pleased by his steady improvement and development as a driver first and, just as significantly, a person.
We couldn’t be happier to give him a shot in Free Practice for the first time next week in preparation for the United States Grand Prix. He’s earned this chance, and I have no doubt that he’ll continue to wow us with his results.
For his part, Pourchaire said, “I am pleased to be making my Free Practice debut in Austin; it will be my second time behind the wheel of a Formula 1 vehicle, but in some ways it will feel like it’s the first time, since this time it will be during an official Grand Prix session.
This seems like a dream come true, so I’d want to extend my gratitude to the Alfa Romeo F1 Team for giving me this incredible chance. I can’t wait to go out on the track and give it my all in order to help the team get ready for the United States Grand Prix.
“Ever since he joined the Sauber Academy back in 2019, Théo has demonstrated great improvement,” stated Beat Zehnder, Alfa Romeo’s Sporting Director. In F3, he won the championship this year and will be a strong candidate again next year; in F2, especially this season, he gave it his all and was in the thick of the title fight for the vast majority of the championship.
It’s great to see him take the next step and earn his first Formula One Free Practice appearance, as he is undeniably one of the most talented young drivers on the rise. His professionalism and willingness to constantly give his all on and off the track made an immediate impression, and we’re excited to see him reach the next level in his racing career.
