Formula One: Teenage sensation Oliver Bearman signs for Haas from 2025

Ahead of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone this weekend, the American-owned Haas F1 Team have announced Oliver Bearman, who raced for Ferrari at the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix standing in for an appendicitis-ridden Carlos Sainz, as their first confirmed driver for the 2025 season and beyond.

The 19-year-old British driver is currently competing for Prema Racing Team in the FIA Formula Two Championship, and despite a strong performance last season, finishing 6th in the Driver’s Championship with four wins, five podiums, two pole positions and two fastest laps, is struggling to keep that same level of form, currently 14th in the Driver’s Championship, five places off of his teammate, 17-year-old Andrea Kimi Antonelli, an Italian driver with strong links to the vacant seat at Mercedes, with seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton taking Sainz’s seat at Ferrari.

Speaking to Haas’ in-house media team, Bearman feels “so immensely proud” to say he is going to be a Haas F1 driver:

“It’s hard to put into words just how much this means to me.

“To be one of the very few people who get to do the thing they dreamed of as a child is something truly incredible.”

With Haas confirming Bearman as one of their drivers, there are only a few seats left, with one seat at each of Williams Racing, Kick Sauber, Mercedes AMG-Petronas, Alpine, and Visa Cashapp Red Bulls (VCARB) left on the grid, with drivers such as Sainz, Daniel Ricciardo, the Australian veteran driver, and French driver Esteban Ocon still to secure drives in the highest-calibre of motorsport.
