Carrie Schreiner to fly Sauber’s colours in F1 Academy


Sauber will be represented in the 2024 F1 Academy series by 25-year-old German driver Carrie Schreiner.

The young Sauber protégé, who began her motorsport career back in 2011 in the competitive ranks of karting, will undertake her second campaign in the all-female championship driving for Campos Racing.

Last year, Schreiner scored 11 points-scoring finishes and won her maiden F1 Academy round at Zandvoort.

“I am proud to represent this team and the Sauber Academy in F1 Academy this year,” said Schreiner. “After an exciting first season, I'm looking forward to getting back to work.

“Sauber has an impressive motorsport history and I want to play my part in continuing its success story in F1 Academy.

“My goal for this season is only one: to win, and to do so flying the flag for the team, while generating more awareness for women in motorsport.

“F1 Academy is a great platform to realise my ambitions, and I am highly motivated to achieve new milestones with our team and Campos Racing.”

After cutting her teeth in karting and winning the X30 Junior Championship in 2012, Schreiner switched to single-seaters in 2015, achieving several top-ten finishes in the German and British F4 championships.

A move to GT Racing in 2018 yielded titles in both the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Middle East Pro-Am class and the DMV Gran Turismo Touring Car Cup – Class 1.

Further success followed when she won the SP8 class in the 2021 ADAC 24 Hours of Nürburgring alongside finishing fifth in the Italian GT Championship GT3 Pro-Am Class Sprint Standings.

“It is a pleasure to welcome Carrie to the team, and we are looking forward to our journey together in F1 Academy,” commented Sauber Academy Director Beat Zehnder.

“Despite her young age, Carrie already boasts an impressive track record, which shows great racecraft and a strong ability to adapt to so many different series.

“We can’t wait to get started and see what we can build together. With the expertise and the support of our Formula 1 team, the Sauber Academy, and Campos Racing, entities with decades-long experience in motorsport, we are confident we will achieve great things together.”

The F1 Academy, managed by Susie Wolff, will boost its exposure this season as a support event at seven Grands Prix, with the action kicking in March in Jeddah.
