Ferdinand Zvonimir Maria Balthus Keith Michael Otto Antal Bahnam Leonhard von Habsburg-Lothringen (born 21 June 1997), common name Ferdinand Habsburg, is an Austrian motor racing driver and heir apparent to the headship of the House of Habsburg-Lorraine as eldest son of Karl von Habsburg.

Ferdinand von Habsburg competes in the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM), and has also raced in the FIA Formula 3 European Championship. In November 2017, he finished 4th in the 2017 Macau Grand Prix after crashing at the final corner of the last lap whilst attempting to complete an overtake for the lead.

Family background

Ferdinand von Habsburg was born on 21 June 1997, a member of the House of Habsburg-Lorraine, from Karl von Habsburg and Francesca von Habsburg. His paternal grandparents are Otto von Habsburg, the last Crown Prince of Austria-Hungary, and Princess Regina of Saxe-Meiningen. His maternal grandparents are Baron Hans Heinrich von Thyssen-Bornemisza and Fiona Frances Elaine Campbell-Walter, descendant of the Campbell baronets.

He was baptised on 20 September 1997 in Zagreb by Cardinal Franjo Kuharić as Ferdinand Zvonimir Maria Balthus Keith Michael Otto Antal Bahnam Leonhard von Habsburg-Lothringen. His godparents were his uncle Georg von Habsburg, Alois-Konstantin, 9th Prince of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg, Margarita Gómez-Acebo y Cejuela, and Agnes Husslein (born Countess of Arco).[1] He was also given the traditional Croatian name Zvonimir.

He is legally referred to in Austria as Ferdinand Zvonimir Habsburg-Lothringen,[2] in Hungary as Habsburg Ferdinánd Zvonimir, and by his royal name as Archduke Ferdinand Zvonimir of Austria[2]

He is the brother of Eleonore von Habsburg and Gloria von Habsburg. His brother-in-law (Eleanore's husband) is Formula E driver Jérôme d'Ambrosio.[3]

Ferdinand is the heir apparent to the headship of the House of Habsburg, currently held by his father. He is informally titled as an Imperial and Royal Archduke of Austria. However, the titles and honorifics are unofficial as Austria is a republic with all royal titles being legally abolished in 1918.

Racing career

Karting

Habsburg began his racing career at the age of 14 with the Austrian team, Speedworld Academy.[4] He has worn racing number 62 since the beginning of his karting career. In 2014 after 4 years spent in ROTAX Junior category, winning multiple championship titles, he switched to Rotax DD2. He qualified three times for the Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals (Portimão – 2012, New Orleans – 2013, Valencia – 2014)

Results
  • 2014 – Austrian champion in Rotax DD2, 12th place in the Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals in Valencia, Spain
  • 2013 – Hungarian Champion and Lower Austrian Champion, Central-Eastern European vice-champion in Rotax Junior,

10th place in the Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals in New Orleans, USA

  • 2012 – Lower Austrian Champion, 33rd place in the RMC World Finals in Portimao, Portugal

Formula Renault 1.6 NEC

In 2014, Habsburg made his début in single seaters, taking part in the Formula Renault 1.6 NEC Championship with Lechner Racing. He finished 4th with a 100% finishing rate in 15 races.

Toyota Racing Series

For 2015, Habsburg contested New Zealand's Toyota Racing Series in January and February 2015 with Victory Motor Racing, finishing 11th in the championship and 5th in the rookie class with two podium finishes. He would return to the series with Giles Motorsport for 2016 and finished fourth in the championship behind Lando Norris, Jehan Daruvala and Brendon Leitch with four podium finishes.

Formula Renault 2.0 NEC

For 2015, Habsburg decided to switch to the Formula Renault 2.0 NEC for Fortec Motorsports.

FIA European Formula 3

For 2017, Habsburg stepped up to the FIA European F3 Championship, racing for Carlin. He had a highly successful season, taking four podiums and a first series win at Spa. However his most impressive drive came in the end of year Macau Grand Prix. In the main race, he battled hard for the lead with Brazilian Sérgio Sette Câmara, but was unable to pass. On the final lap, Habsburg took the lead around the outside of the final corner at Fisherman's Bend, but braked too late and understeered into the barriers on the exit of the corner, with Sette Câmara doing exactly the same thing, handing the race win to Câmara's teammate Dan Ticktum. Habsburg eventually limped across the line fourth despite broken front suspension. Nonetheless, the Austrian would gain much praise from both his team boss and journalists for his final lap maneuver, along with his great season as a whole. He returned to the series in 2018.

Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters

In 2019, Habsburg signed for R-Motorsport II racing the Aston Martin Vantage DTM. He scored two points finishes in Circuit Zolder and the Norisring. He finished 18th in the driver's championship.[5] In 2020, Habsburg made the switch to Audi Sport Team WRT racing the Audi RS5 Turbo DTM. [6] This season was comparatively successful for Habsburg as he secured 10 points positions one of which was a podium in Circuit Zolder. This meant that Habsburg finished 10th in the driver's championship with 68 points.

Endurance racing

In 2020, Habsburg competed in the 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual with Mahle Racing, driving the 2018 Aston Martin Vantage GTE alongside IndyCar Series driver Robert Wickens and sim-racers Jimmy Broadbent and Kevin Rotting. They classified in 46th place.[7][8] In 2021, Habsburg is due to race in the Asian Le Mans Series with G-Drive Racing. Together with his teammates Ye Yifei and Rene Binder he won the Driver's championships taking two wins along the way. Alongside this, Habsburg raced with High Class Racing in the 2021 24 Hours of Daytona alongside Robert Kubica, Dennis Andersen, and Anders Fjordbach. However, they retired from the race due to a gearbox failure.[9] On 26 February it was confirmed he would compete in the 2021 FIA World Endurance Championship for Team WRT alongside Robin Frijns and Charles Milesi driving an Oreca 07 in the LMP2 class.

Art car

Together with his mother Francesca von Habsburg, Habsburg launched a unique interpretation of racing and art in 2014. The famous Swiss designer group, Lang-Baumann, designed and painted his race car.[10]
