Gregoire Saucy will drive for ART Grand Prix in the upcoming Formula 3 season.
Saucy had his debut season in F3 with ART GP this year. The Swiss driver finished the season 15th in the standings. He scored 30 points and finished on the podium once.
“In 2023, I will celebrate my 4th anniversary with ART Grand Prix, a milestone I am very proud of,” Saucy commented on the announcement.
“Knowing the team for this long is a plus because we know each other’s strengths and we know how to work on our weaknesses. I have already started on my mental and physical preparation so I can be ready for the first laps of 2023.
“I learned a great deal in the first season of F3 and I will be using that to bring ART Grand Prix a second title, following the one in FRECA back in 2021.
“The championship will be long and exciting, with new dates, and one of the keys will be to be consistent right from the onset. This is what we missed last season and I know that to achieve my title objective we will have to do what we did in 2021: score the maximum number of points when victory is not within our reach.
“I am very happy to continue working with ART Grand Prix and I can’t wait for the new season to start. I want to thank ART Grand Prix, Dominique Guenat, Richard Mille, and my sponsors without whom this project would not have been possible.”
Team principal Sebastien Philippe added: “Gregoire has been a member of the ART Grand Prix family for three years, and we could only congratulate ourselves on his personal and sporting qualities.
“In the wake of his title in the European Regional Formula by Alpine, where he moved forward a step, he made a promising debut in Formula 3 by climbing onto the podium in Bahrain during his first weekend of racing in the series.
“Like the team, Gregoire has had his ups and downs, but he fought hard throughout the year and in 2023 his first year of experience in the discipline will be an asset to help him aim for regular victories.”
