Haas select Chloe Chambers for 2024 F1 Academy seat
Haas have become the latest F1 team to confirm their nominated driver for the 2024 F1 Academy season, choosing American racer Chloe Chambers. The 19-year-old will be getting behind the wheel for Campos Racing.
Chambers began karting aged eight, winning several regional and national Championships. In 2020, aged 16, she claimed the Guinness World Record for the fastest vehicle slalom.
Stepping up to single-seaters the next year, she competed in the Formula 4 United States Championship before moving to W Series in 2022.
Last year, Chambers made history in the Castrol Toyota Formula Regional Oceania Championship, becoming the New Zealand-based series’ first female polesitter and winner, and receiving the “Most Improved Driver” award. In addition, she competed in the Porsche Sprint Challenge North America.
“I’m super excited to be driving for MoneyGram Haas F1 Team with Campos Racing in F1 Academy,” said Chambers. “Having the backing of Haas is going to open many doors for new experiences and it’s going to be a place where I can learn.
“I’m excited to be going to Miami for Haas’s and my home race, that’s a race I’m looking forward to. It’s my first season in F1 Academy, so I’m looking forward to getting good results and developing as a driver. I did some testing over the winter with Campos Racing, and the team and I work very well together.”
Ayao Komatsu, Haas Team Principal, added: “As a father to two karting enthusiasts myself, I know the importance of representation in encouraging the next generation to take that leap and follow their dreams.
“It was great to meet Chloe and see her enthusiasm for the season ahead, and the team thoroughly enjoyed getting to know her at the factory – from speaking with our engineers, participating in pit stop practice and undertaking her first media obligations. MoneyGram Haas F1 Team fully supports Formula 1 and F1 Academy in its objectives, and we’re committed to increasing the talent pool of young girls and women entering the sport, utilizing our resources.”
