Gregoire Saucy will spend a second season in ART Grand Prix’s Regional Formula 3 line-up, although it will now be in a different series.

ART GP returned to the Formula Renault Eurocup last year, with Saucy as one of its drivers, but the end of that series has led to the French outfit switching to Formula Regional European Championship which uses the same car and now the same Renault engines too.

Saucy picked up two podiums on the way to seventh in the points in 2020, which was his first full season in the series after occassional starts in previous years. The 21-year-old also has experience in Formula 4 and the Toyota Racing Series.

“2020 went really well with ART Grand Prix, I learned a lot and although there were ups and downs, this was my best year of competition so far,” said Saucy.

“I am therefore very happy to continue with ART GP. My goal is to use everything I learned last season to be at my best from the first race.”

The Swiss will be team-mate to reigning Italian F4 champion Gabriele Mini and Spanish F4 graduate Thomas ten Brinke in ART GP’s line-up.

“Grégoire had a solid first season in Formula Renault Eurocup, he was often close to the front rows,” added ART GP CEO Sebastien Philippe.

“He has evolved in the right direction both technically and mentally and in 2021 he will be able to give the team the benefit of his full potential and experience to pull him to the top.”
