Oliver Bearman, a promising young driver in Formula 2, has just secured a seat on the 2025 Formula 1 grid with Haas!

The 19-year-old, who is currently serving as a reserve driver for both Ferrari and Haas, will officially join the Haas F1 team as a full-time driver next year.

Bearman signed his contract on Wednesday, July 3, with Haas Team Principal Ayao Komatsu and team owner Gene Haas.

This significant announcement comes just ahead of the 2024 British Grand Prix weekend, marking a milestone in Bearman’s burgeoning career.

“It’s hard to put into words just how much this means to me,” Bearman expressed in a statement. “To say out loud that I will be a Formula 1 driver for Haas F1 Team makes me so immensely proud.” He continued, “To be one of the very few people who get to do the thing they dreamed of as a child is something truly incredible.

To Gene, Ayao, and everyone at Haas, thank you for believing in me and for trusting me to represent your team.”

Bearman also reflected on his journey and the support he received, saying, “I’ve really enjoyed working with everyone since the first time we met in Mexico and I can’t wait to enjoy this moment with them and hopefully many more in the future.”

He further acknowledged the crucial role of the Scuderia Ferrari Driver Academy in his development, stating, “[To] everyone at the Scuderia Ferrari Driver Academy, quite simply, I wouldn’t be here without you.

Thank you for preparing me since F4 for this incredible opportunity and know I will give it everything I have.”

Earlier this year, Bearman had the chance to drive in his first Formula 1 race at the 2024 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, stepping in for Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz, who was out sick.

Bearman’s impressive performance saw him finishing in seventh place, earning six points for both himself and the team.

This weekend, Bearman got behind the wheel of Kevin Magnussen’s Haas race car during the first practice session of the British Grand Prix.

His signing with Haas not only marks a significant step in his career but also makes him the first and only confirmed driver for the team for the 2025 season.

Current Haas driver Nico Hulkenberg is set to switch to the Kick Sauber team next year, and the future of Kevin Magnussen with Haas remains uncertain.

This transition signifies a new chapter for Bearman, who is eager to make the most of this incredible opportunity and continue to build on his successes in the world of Formula 1.
