Oliver Bearman to Make Historic Ferrari Debut in Saudi Arabia

Oliver Bearman, a rising star in the world of Formula One, is poised to make history as he prepares to debut for Ferrari at the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix. The 18-year-old British driver will replace Carlos Sainz, who has been ruled out due to appendicitis.

Bearman’s debut will mark a significant milestone, making him the youngest driver to participate in a Formula One race since Max Verstappen and Lance Stroll. The young prodigy has already demonstrated his exceptional talent, securing pole position in the F2 race at the Saudi Arabia circuit.

Born in Essex, England, Bearman began his racing journey in karting at the tender age of seven. His remarkable success at the karting level, including multiple championship victories, paved the way for his debut in F4 in 2020.

In 2021, Bearman’s dominance continued as he triumphed in both the German and Italian F4 championships. His impressive performances caught the attention of Ferrari, who offered him a position in their prestigious driver academy.

In his maiden season in Formula 3, Bearman narrowly missed out on the title, finishing third. He then progressed to Formula 2 in 2023, where he showcased his speed and consistency, winning four races and securing two additional podium finishes.

Bearman’s impressive performances earned him a promotion to reserve driver for Ferrari ahead of the 2024 season. Now, he is set to become the youngest driver in the history of the legendary Italian team.

Bearman’s debut at the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix will be a testament to his exceptional talent and the unwavering support of Ferrari. The young driver will face a formidable challenge, but his determination and unwavering focus will undoubtedly make him a force to be reckoned with on the Formula One grid.
