From karts to singleseaters: Charouz Racing System announces FIA Formula 3 driver lineup change, welcoming Christian Mansell

Charouz Racing System is pleased to announce the signing of a deal with Christian Mansell who, starting from the next round in Hungary, will join its FIA Formula 3 driver lineup for two race weekends.

The 17-year-old driver from Australia is set to make is debut in the series at the Hungaroring, a track where he already had the opportunity to race in the past, competing in the EuroFormula Open championship. Mansell is currently a title contender in the series, also thanks to his brilliant last round right at the Budapest circuit, where he was able to win Race 3 and finish in P2 and P4 the other two races.

Before EuroFormula Open and after a few successful years in karting (SP Tools Australian Kart Championship, WSK, FIA Karting), he also competed in the 2021 GB3 championship, ending the season third in the Driver Standings, and in the 2020 F4 British Championship powered by Ford EcoBoost, where he won the Rookie trophy.

Mansell will also race in Round 7 at Spa-Francorchamps on 29-31 August. Another track where he already raced, displaying his driving skills at the wheel of a single-seater and getting two podium finishes in P2 during the recent EuroFormula Open weekend at the legendary Belgian circuit.

Antonín Charouz, team owner
I’m really happy to welcome Christian in the team and I’m looking forward to see him in the car. He’ll need all of our support to get confident with a single-seater different from the ones he already raced with, but I’m confident that it will happen very naturally and very quickly given how talented he is. The fact that he already had experiences at both Hungaroring and Spa-Francorchamps is definitely an optimum starting point for his debut. The team and I are really excited to have him on board, I’m sure that he’s excited too and he’ll show everybody what he’s capable of”.

Christian Mansell
I’m super excited to be joining FIA Formula 3 with Charouz Racing System. This is a fantastic opportunity for me to put myself against an incredibly talented grid of drivers and get my name out there racing on the Formula 1 weekends. It will be my first time in the car so there will be a lot to learn from the start, but I like both circuits so I will be able to hit the ground running with those. I’m mega excited and can’t wait to get started this weekend in Hungary”.
