BREAKING: Oliver Bearman replaces sick Carlos Sainz in Saudi Arabia

Jeddah – Carlos Sainz has been diagnosed with appendicitis and will require surgery. As from FP3 and for the rest of this weekend, he will be replaced by reserve Ferrari driver Oliver Bearman. Oliver will therefore take no further part in this round of the F2 Championship.

The 18-year-old British racer, who delivered a race-winning rookie campaign in 2023, is set for his second season in the high-profile F1 feeder series. He is looking to build and improve on the already exceptional results of this year, which included four wins, three of which in the feature races, and three pole positions. 

Bearman joined PREMA for the 2022 FIA Formula 3 Championship after winning two Formula 4 titles in 2021. He made amazing progress race by race, ending up a close third in points and contributing to PREMA’s Team Championship title.
