Sauber Junior Team
“Drivers have the chance to potentially progress all the way from Formula 4 to the verge of F1 with a single team.”
The Sauber Junior Team ladder of progression begins with the FIA’s Formula 4 category – a hugely important proving ground for young drivers.
Our quartet of F4 drivers run under the watchful eye of the engineers at US – CHRS in 2019, a squad that guided one of our F3 drivers, Lirim Zendeli, to the ADAC F4 Championship title in 2018.
With a race-winning team infrastructure already in place, we have created the perfect environment in which our development drivers can flourish as they tackle a programme of races in both Germany and Italy.
Highly-rated Czech National Team driver Roman will start a new chapter in his career in 2019 by making the leap from karts to single-seater competition.
The youngster has progressed through the European kart racing ranks and arrives in the Formula 4 category with an impressive reputation. He’s ready to show his mettle in both the German and Italian series.
The highly-rated Frenchman joins the Sauber Junior Team programme with a regional Formula 4 title to his name.
He was the standout driver in the 2018 South East Asia Formula 4 Championship and has also tasted Formula 3 machinery during the European off season, finishing on the podium in his maiden Asian F3 Winter Series race.
The 15-year-old joins the Sauber Junior Team programme with an exemplary record in karting as a Formula 4 rookie in 2018.
With three French national karting titles to his name, he then finished P3 in the OK-J World Championship and became a winner in the CIK-FIA OK European Championship in 2017. A successful move into the French F4 series followed in 2018 as he won the Junior title and finished P3 overall.
