Alessio Lorandi (born 8 September 1998) is an Italian racing driver who competes for Trident in the 2018 FIA Formula Two Championship.[1] Lorandi arrived in F2 rather quicker than expected, having been brought in mid-season to replace the controversial Santino Ferrucci ahead of the 2018 Hungaroring Feature Race.[2]

Background

Lorandi's career began in conventional fashion, with the Italian taking up karting before his ninth birthday.[1] By 2015 Lorandi had earned enough notice to earn a spot in car racing, joining, rather ambitiously, the FIA Formula 3 European Championship with almost no experience outside of karting.[1] As such, Lorandi struggled to become a regular face at the front of the field, but did enough to secure a second season in F3.[1]

Rapid Rise

2016 saw Lorandi improve beyond expectations, the Italian claiming his first F3 win at the third round of the season.[1] Whether that would have given way to more was, however, made impossible, for Lorandi moved to the GP3 Series before the end of the season.[1] Indeed, Lorandi completed four races in the F2 feeder series at the end of 2016, but failed to score a point.[1]

Regardless, Lorandi was handed a full GP3 Series seat for 2017, and duly delivered a double podium finish at the opening round.[1] A win would come later in the season as Lorandi finished seventh in the Championship, before moving to Trident for 2018.[1] Lorandi soon settled into his new team, securing a podium finish in his fifth race with them, only to be promoted mid-season to Trident's F2 team.[1]

Formula Two History

Lorandi's promotion to the FIA Formula Two Championship came at the expense of Santino Ferrucci, whose actions during and after the 2018 Silverstone Sprint Race resulted in the American racer being sacked by Trident.[3] Lorandi, as Trident's leading scorer in GP3 in 2018, was duly given Ferrucci's #17 car, and would make his debut at the Hungaroring.[2] A quiet debut for Lorandi would, however, see the Italian racer fail to threaten the points, before retiring from the Sprint Race via an accident.[4]
