Carrie Schreiner will return for her sophomore F1 Academy campaign, with Sauber announcing that the German driver will be representing them for the 2024 season.

Last year, Schreiner went from strength-to-strength and secured her maiden victory in Race 2 at Zandvoort. Now getting behind the wheel for Campos Racing, the 25-year-old has also joined the Sauber Academy development programme.

“I am proud to represent this team and the Sauber Academy in F1 Academy this year,” said Schreiner. “After an exciting first season, I'm looking forward to getting back to work. Sauber has an impressive motorsport history and I want to play my part in continuing its success story in F1 Academy.

“My goal for this season is only one: to win, and to do so flying the flag for the team, while generating more awareness for women in motorsport. F1 Academy is a great platform to realise my ambitions, and I am highly motivated to achieve new milestones with our team and Campos Racing.”

Schreiner’s racing career first began in 2011 when she made her debut in the ADAC Kart Masters. Success quickly followed the next year as she became the first and, so far, only female driver to secure the X30 Junior Championship title.

Stepping up to single-seaters in 2015, Schreiner earned several top 10 finishes in both the German and British F4 Championships, before making the switch to GT Racing in 2017. The following year saw her bring home titles in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Middle East Pro-Am class and the DMV Gran Turismo Touring Car Cup – Class 1.

After securing third in the SP3T class at the ADAC 24 Hours of Nürburgring, she went on to triumph in the SP8 class in 2021 alongside finishing fifth in the Italian GT Championship GT3 Pro-Am Class Sprint Standings.

Welcoming Schreiner to the team’s fold, Sauber Academy Director Beat Zehnder said they’re looking forward to building their new partnership and harnessing her wealth of on-track experience.

“It is a pleasure to welcome Carrie to the team, and we are looking forward to our journey together in F1 Academy. Despite her young age, Carrie already boasts an impressive track record, which shows great racecraft and a strong ability to adapt to so many different series. We can’t wait to get started and see what we can build together. With the expertise and the support of our Formula One team, the Sauber Academy, and Campos Racing, entities with decades-long experience in motorsport, we are confident we will achieve great things together.”

Campos Racing Team Principal Adrián Campos added: “We are delighted to welcome Carrie to the team, and to begin a new collaboration with Sauber. Both our outfits boast vast experience in nurturing and raising the champions of tomorrow, and we cannot wait to get started. Carrie showed great promise in her previous racing experiences, and we are ready to support her as we go for gold in the 2024 F1 Academy season.”
