ART Grand Prix
Founded by newly-appointed Ferrari Team Principal Frédéric Vasseur alongside Nicolas Todt, ART Grand Prix has practically been a mainstay of junior single seater racing since its inception. The team has helped a plethora of talent on their way to F1, including Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg, Charles Leclerc, George Russell and, most recently, Nyck de Vries.
Achieving success across all of the junior motorsport categories it participates in, Rodin Carlin has brought through some very recognisable names in racing. Drivers like Lando Norris, Yuki Tsunoda and Logan Sargeant have each raced for the team on their paths to Formula 1. Led by Stephanie Carlin, F1 Academy is the next Championship to be added to the Rodin Carlin programme.
Founded by the late Adrian Campos, the eponymous team has brought plenty of racing talent through its ranks since its inception in 1997. Perhaps most notably, 2021 IndyCar Champion and McLaren F1 reserve driver, Alex Palou earned his early stripes with the Spanish team. Now run by Adrian Campos Jr, Campos Racing carries on the legacy of its founder and continues to develop young drivers en route through to the top of the junior motorsport ranks.
Self-described as a ‘racing family’, MP Motorsport has been one of the established front-runners in FIA single seater racing Championships in recent seasons. With a passionate approach centred around family feeling, equality and talent development, they are the reigning Formula 2 Champions competing at the sharp end of every category it races in, F1 Academy now included.
A presence at almost every rung on the junior single-seater ladder, PREMA Racing sits as one of the most successful teams currently racing. From karting all the way up through to FIA Formula 2, PREMA has brought success in combination with plenty of well-known names, with Charles Leclerc and Mick Schumacher both winning their F2 titles with the Italian outfit en route to F1.
