Carrie Schreiner to represent Sauber Academy for 2024 F1 Academy season
Carrie Schreiner will be returning for a second F1 Academy season, as the German driver has been announced as part of the Sauber Academy for the upcoming campaign, driving for Campos Racing.
Last year saw the 25-year-old score 11 points-scoring finishes, including a maiden victory in Race 2 at Zandvoort.
“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.”
Beginning her racing career in 2011, she became the first and, so far, only female driver to secure the X30 Junior Championship title in the 2012 ADAC Kart Masters. After graduating to single-seaters in 2015, she made the switch to GT Racing two years later.
In 2018, she secured titles in both the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Middle East Pro-Am class and the DMV Gran Turismo Touring Car Cup – Class 1. Further success followed when she won the SP8 class in the 2021 ADAC 24 Hours of Nürburgring 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,” he said. “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 1 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 Adrian 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.”
