The Sauber Junior Team is determined to make its mark in the FIA Formula 2 Championship during 2019.

The season is long and tough, with 12 rounds and 24 races to contest. But with a talented driver line up on the track and an experienced team of race-winning F2 engineers behind the scenes, we’re in fantastic shape.

With the support of Sauber Motorsport and Charouz Racing System, Callum Ilott and Juan Manuel Correa are pushing to set the F2 pace and put on an exciting show at each Grand Prix weekend.

With a glittering karting career behind him, Callum moved directly into the Formula 3 category at the age of 16 and immediately caught the eye. He battled for the 2017 European title with six wins, and in 2018 placed third in an ultra-competitive GP3 season.
