Zak O’Sullivan today confirmed he will join ART Grand Prix for the 2024 FIA Formula 2 Championship. The 18-year-old from Cheltenham joins the French outfit for his Formula 2 debut, after a successful sophomore season in FIA Formula 3 with four wins, placing second in the standings.
O’Sullivan began his car racing career in 2019 and has already achieved considerable success. Zak secured runners-up honours in the Ginetta Junior Championship, before graduating to the FIA F4 British Championship in 2020 with a record nine race wins. After a breakout season winning the 2021 GB3 Championship, he joined the Williams Racing Driver Academy and made his debut in FIA Formula 3. Zak’s second season in Formula 3 delivered the most race wins of any driver, along with second overall. Zak looks to make an impact on his Formula 2 debut with ART Grand Prix.
“I am delighted to join forces with ART Grand Prix for the 2024 FIA Formula 2 season. The team has clearly demonstrated it has all the attributes to win, so I cannot wait to get started. ART have already made me feel very welcome. 2024 is set to be an exciting year and I feel ready for the challenge.”
“I’m delighted about the collaboration between Zak and ART Grand Prix. He’s a driver we’ve been following for a long time, and he has consistently elevated his level of performance. His background and mindset align with ART Grand Prix’s mission of supporting young drivers to the highest levels of motorsport. It’s with pleasure and honor that we welcome a member of the Williams Racing Driver Academy. With proper winter preparation, his racing approach and adaptability should enable him to compete at the front.”
