Career

Karting

Born in Tyresö, Lundqvist began karting at the age of six during a holiday in Finland and from there contested numerous championships in his native Sweden and across Europe and won numerous titles.[2][3]

Lower Formulas

In 2015, Lundqvist made his single-seater debut in the Formula Renault 1.6 Nordic championship with Team TIDÖ, where he claimed fourth in the Nordic championship, second in the JSM standings and third in the NEZ championship.[4] The following year, Lundqvist returned to the renamed Formula STCC Nordic championship with the LL Motorsport Junior Team, where he dominated proceedings to claim ten wins and finish as Drivers and NEZ champion.[5][6]

In 2017, Lundqvist moved across to the British F4 championship with Double R Racing.[7] In the championship, he claimed five victories but a string of inconsistent performances meant he could only achieve fifth in the drivers' standings.[8][9]

Formula 3

In July 2017, Lundqvist made his debut in the BRDC British Formula 3 championship, again with Double R.[10] There he achieved three points finishes, the highest being a seventh in the third race.[11]

In February 2018, Double R announced Lundqvist would contest the championship full-time.[12] There he claimed seven wins and three pole positions to claim the title at Silverstone after a season-long battle with Nicolai Kjærgaard.[1]

Euroformula Open Championship

After partaking in the winter series and pre-season testing with Campos Racing, Lundqvist once again teamed up with Double R to partake in the Euroformula Open Championship.[13][14]

Formula Regional Americas

In April 2020, Global Racing Group announced Lundqvist would race with them in the 2020 championship.[15] In a dominant display, Lundqvist claimed sixteen of the eighteen race wins on offer and took the championship title at the penultimate round at Homestead.[16][17]

GP3 Series

In November 2018, Campos Racing confirmed they would run Lundqvist in the post-season test at Yas Marina.[18]

Road to Indy

Indy Lights

As part of winning the Formula Regional Americas title, Lundqvist received a Honda-backed scholarship to contest the 2021 championship.[19]

Sports Car Racing

In November 2018, Lundqvist won the Sunoco Whelen Challenge and received a drive for the 24 Hours of Daytona for 2019 with Precision Performance Motorsports.[20]
