Théo Pourchaire (born 20 August 2003) is a French racing driver, currently competing in the FIA Formula 2 Championship for the ART Grand Prix team. He won the 2019 ADAC Formula 4 Championship,[2][3] and was runner-up in the 2020 FIA Formula 3 Championship with ART Grand Prix.

Career

Karting

Born in Grasse, Pourchaire began karting at the age of two and a half and made his competitive debut at age seven.[4] From there he claimed multiple championships in his native France, as well as finishing third in the CIK-FIA OKJ and DKM Junior championships.[5][6][7][8]

Lower formulae

In 2018, Pourchaire stepped up to single-seaters, contesting the French F4 championship.[9] Despite being ineligible for the main championship on account of his age, he claimed victory in the second race at Spa-Francorchamps and claimed sixteen junior victories to be crowned Junior Champion.[10]

The following year, Pourchaire remained at Formula 4 level, but switched to the ADAC Formula 4 championship as part of the US Racing-CHRS outfit.[11] Claiming four wins, multiple podiums, including a double at the German Grand Prix support race, Pourchaire claimed the championship title at the final round at the Sachsenring by seven points from Red Bull Junior and title rival Dennis Hauger.[12][13][14][15]

FIA Formula 3 Championship

In October 2019, Pourchaire attended the post-season test at Circuit Ricardo Tormo, contesting all three sessions with Carlin Buzz Racing and ART Grand Prix.[16][17][18] Two months later, he joined the latter to contest the 2020 season.[19] Pourchaire took his first FIA Formula 3 victory at the sprint race of the second Red Bull Ring round, followed by his first feature race win in the next race at the Hungaroring.

This proved to be the final race win of his season, but a late surge in performance, including a string of podium finishes towards the end of the season, hauled him into the championship fight going into the final round at Mugello. Following a first-lap retirement for title rival Logan Sargeant in the final race of the season, Pourchaire ultimately finished as championship runner-up, just 3 points behind champion Oscar Piastri.

FIA Formula 2 Championship

In October 2020, it was announced that Pourchaire would make his FIA Formula 2 Championship debut at the final two rounds of the 2020 season at the Bahrain International Circuit. He drove for HWA Racelab, replacing former FIA Formula 3 competitor Jake Hughes and partnering Artem Markelov.[20] Pourchaire qualified 16th for the first feature race and finished 18th. In the first sprint race, he was forced to retire when his fire extinguisher deployed inside his cockpit.[21] He finished the final two races in 18th and 21st place.

Pourchaire drove for ART Grand Prix at the post-season Formula 2 test in December 2020, and in January 2021 it was announced that he would join the team for the 2021 Formula 2 Championship.[22]

After a consistent start to the season, Pourchaire took his maiden F2 win at Monaco, winning the feature race after qualifying on pole position. In doing so, he became the youngest driver ever to win a F2/GP2 race.[23] He broke his wrist in a first-lap collision with Marcus Armstrong and Dan Ticktum during the feature race at the next round in Baku.

Formula One

As part of his signing with US Racing-CHRS, Pourchaire was made a member of the Sauber Junior Team.[24] In June 2020, Pourchaire renewed his relationship with the scheme.[25]
