Sportscar racer Carrie Schreiner has signed with ART Grand Prix to race in the new Formula 4-spec F1 Academy series.

The 24-year-old German last raced in single-seaters back in 2016. She came 43rd in ADAC F4 in a full season with US Racing, and 17th in British F4 in a part-time campaign with Double R Racing. In 2015 she was 44th in ADAC F4 as a rookie.

She then switched to GT racing, first competing in Lamborghini Super Trofeo events – coming second in the Middle East championship’s top Pro class in 2017 and winning its Pro-am class in 2018 as well as sharing a car with Sebastian Vettel’s brother Fabian in the European series – then joining Germany’s Gran Tourismo Touring Car Cup.

Schreiner won its 2018 Class 1 title in an Audi R8 LMS, and was 24th in ADAC GT Masters in 2019. She joined the Nurburgring Endurance Series in a touring car that year too, and has since become a regular in the circuit’s 24-hour race.

In 2021 she was a part of a class-winning all-female entry in the Nurburgring 24 Hours, as well as racing in Italian GT where she was fifth in the Endurance standings and 14th in the Sprint standings.

She is the fifth driver to be announced in the all-female F1 Academy series, and is ART GP’s second signing.

“It’s a great honour to be driving for ART GP,” Schreiner said. “Not many teams have the amount of records they do, or have been champion so many times.

“I am proud to be joining the list of their drivers and excited about what we can achieve together. I think it’s an important step that F1 has its own championship for women.

“It will certainly be fun to drive the car with the new aero and with a team like ART GP. I have the best requirements I need to perform well. I will give everything to achieve the best results and compete for front positions.”
