The All Road Management stable run by Formula 1 driver manager Nicolas Todt has signed young Italian karter Gabriele Mini.
Mini, 13, enjoyed a strong first season in the OK Junior category in 2018, finishing second both the European and World championships.
He now joins the management group that has guided Charles Leclerc from karting to his 2019 Ferrari Formula 1 drive, and which has also overseen Felipe Massa’s career.
As an All Road recruit, Mini follows Caio Collet, who was signed up while karting and this year won the French Formula 4 title in his first season in cars.
“We always choose our new members with extreme attention, as was the case with Jules Bianchi, Charles Leclerc or more recently Caio Collet, all detected during their years in karting,” said Todt.
“We have been watching Gabriele for a long time this season, and he has shown very convincing qualities that suggest a huge potential to become a great car champion.”
Mini commented: “Being spotted by All Road Management at the age of 13 is a dream that has suddenly become a reality. I thank Nicolas Todt sincerely for the great trust he has placed in me. I am very happy with the direction my career will take and my will to win is even greater.”
