The Ferrari Driver Academy student to make GP3 debut in 2018 with the ART team
Callum Ilott is ready to move up a category. In 2017, the 19 year old Englishman was a frontrunner in the European Formula 3 series and next year he will compete in the GP3 Series, racing for the ART team. Along with the management of the FDA, we evaluated all the opportunities that could further my career,” commented Ilot. “And I’m very pleased that the final decision is to race in GP3 with ART, a very professional team with proven experience in this category. I can’t wait to get to grips with a new car, new tracks and new challenges.”
Ilot joined Ferrari’s Driver Academy back in October and rounded off his time in Formula 3 at the Macau Grand Prix, winning the qualification race. In the 2017 European championship, Callum had six wins and ten pole positions to his name. Last week, he got a first taste of a GP3 car, driving one for the three days of the Yas Marina circuit test session.
