Theo Pourchaire, ART Grand Prix

Interview

The making of an F1 hopeful re-writing the F2 record books

He'd marked himself out as a star of the future in last year's FIA Formula 3 championship, but 17-year-old Theo Pourchaire underlined his credentials by winning his first Formula 2 race in the Monaco feature. Sauber junior status gives him a clear route to the top, but with wisdom beyond his years, he's not getting caught up in his own hype

He’s not yet old enough to hold a driving licence and still studying at school, but he is the youngest-ever Formula 2 race winner, achieving the feat at Monaco no less. You could forgive 17-year-old Theo Pourchaire for admitting his life is somewhat surreal, for that is very much the reality.

The teenager is signing autographs and posing for photos on the weekend, while focusing on schoolwork during the week, a situation that Pourchaire finds somewhat funny.
