Charlie Wurz will join Jenzer Motorsport for the 2024 FIA Formula 3 campaign, filling out the final spot in the Swiss team’s lineup for this season.
Wurz, son of ex-F1 driver Alexander, arrives in F3 after a partial campaign in Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine and Euroformula Open Championship. The Austrian took five podiums en route to P6 in the Standings as well as a maiden win at Monza in the latter.
Prior to that, the 18-year-old began his single-seater career in the Italian F4 Championship back in 2021, taking part in six races before returning for a full campaign the following year. That same season, he won the 2022 Formula 4 UAE title with two wins and 10 podiums in total. He finished the Italian F4 season fourth, also taking one win and six podiums in total.
Speaking about his promotion to FIA Formula 3 with Jenzer, Wurz said that he couldn’t wait to begin his year in F3 with the team.
“I am thrilled to be racing with Jenzer Motorsport for the 2024 FIA F3 season. I feel confident and comfortable having a team with such high motivation behind me. I can’t wait to get started in Bahrain in a few weeks time.”
Team Principal Andreas Jenzer added that Wurz’s experience with the team during post-season testing was a big positive to take into the new campaign.
“Part of Charlie’s blood seems to be pure fuel and passion! The FIA F3 official test days we did together at the end of 2023 as well as how he was able to shine in the demanding FIA F3 Macau World Cup event was very positive. Let’s push together to achieve great results and bring the Jenzer Motorsport car - featuring the new livery - once more to the front.“
