Charouz Racing System
“Blending an exceptional driver pairing with our proven F2 pedigree is a hugely exciting prospect for 2020.”
Charouz Racing System is returning to the FIA Formula 2 Championship for the third successive season in 2020. The target is clear: to win.
The season is long and tough, with 12 Grand Prix-supporting events and 24 races to contest. But with talented drivers on the track and an experienced team of race-winning F2 engineers behind the scenes, we’re in fantastic shape.
Our driver line-up of Louis Delétraz and Pedro Piquet is one of the most exciting in the paddock. Louis is a proven and experienced contender in the F2 category and Pedro is one of junior motorsport’s rising stars having shown blistering pace in F3.
Swiss native Louis developed a passion for motorsport at an early age, with father Jean-Denis participating in various categories, including Formula 1. Louis followed in his footsteps, winning the 2015 Formula Renault 2.0 title, before finishing a close runner-up in the Formula Renault 3.5 Series.
The 22-year-old stepped up to Formula 2 in 2017 and has emerged as a formidable front-runner and regular points scorer, taking five podiums and P8 in the 2019 standings. He’s also accumulated some valuable Formula 1 experience, having tested for Haas F1 Team and secured a position as the squad’s simulator driver during 2019 and 2020.
A Formula 3 champion in his homeland of Brazil, the son of the legendary three-time Formula 1 champion Nelson made the move across the Atlantic in 2016 to race in the European series.
A race-winner in GP3, Pedro ran at the front of the reborn 30-driver FIA Formula 3 Championship in 2019, claiming victory at Spa, en route to P5 in the final points standings.
