FIA Formula 2 driver Ollie Bearman will make his F1 debut with Haas F1 Team with two F1 outings in Mexico and Abu Dhabi.

The British driver has performed admirably during his rookie F2 campaign, scoring four victories, including a double triumph in Azerbaijan for PREMA.

Bearman sits sixth in the standings ahead of the final round in Abu Dhabi and is delighted to be making his Formula 1 debut with the American team.

“I am so happy to be joining MoneyGram Haas F1 Team driving in Mexico and Abu Dhabi,” commented Bearman.

“Getting to Formula 1 has been my dream since I was go-karting so to be driving a car for the first time this year is really special. 

“I’m grateful to the team, and of course Ferrari, for allowing me this chance. I’m working hard to make sure I’m ready to support the team as best I can on both occasions.”

Bearman has had a stellar junior career, winning the ADAC F4 title and the Italian F4 championship in 2021 in a dual campaign.

The 18-year-old impressed further up the ladder last year, taking third place in the ultra-competitive FIA F3 Championship.

The Briton walks  in the footsteps of Ferrari F1 driver Charles Leclerc and Le Mans 24 Hours winner Antonio Giovinazzi among others to drive for Haas on an F1 weekend as a Ferrari affiliate.

Bearman will become the youngest British driver ever to drive in a Formula 1 practice session.

 “We’re very happy to offer Oliver Bearman these outings in Mexico and Abu Dhabi,”stated Guenther Steiner, Team Principal of MoneyGram Haas F1 Team. 

“He’s had a stellar rookie season in Formula 2, four wins is testament to that, and as part of the Ferrari Driver Academy – we know his background preparation coming into these weekends will be first-rate.

“We look forward to welcoming Oliver into the team and have him drive the VF-23.”
