Dorian Boccolacci (born 9 September 1998 in Cannes, France) is a French racing driver who competes for MP Motorsport in the 2018 FIA Formula Two Championship. Boccolacci was brought into F2 to replace Roberto Merhi after the summer-break in 2018, having two wins in the GP3 Series, including one on his final appearance.
Boccolacci began his career in karting, before making his car racing debut in the French F4 Championship in 2014. An excellent rookie campaign saw Boccolacci finish second in the Championship, earning him a spot in the FIA Formula 3 European Championship for 2015. Unfortunately that seemed to be a step too far, too soon, for Boccolacci, who only scored a handful of points en-route to nineteenth in the Championship.
For 2016 Boccolacci took a more pragmatic approach, moving into the Formula Renault 2.0 NEC and Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0. The step down saw Boccolacci demonstrate his ability finishing the season second in the latter, and third overall in the former. Those results duly earned Boccolacci a spot in the GP3 Series, with the Frenhcman joining Trident.
A good maiden GP3 campaign saw Boccolacci end the season with a maiden victory, leaving the Frenchman sixth in the Championship. Boccolacci then spent the winter in the Andros Trophy, and signed up to the Venturi Next Gen Programme for Formula E. Regardless, Boccolacci would again to commit himself to the GP3 Series in 2018, claiming his second GP3 victory shortly before the summer break.
Formula Two History
Boccolacci's second GP3 Series season would, however, be interrupted, as MP Motorsport decided to promote him to the FIA Formula Two Championship midway through 2018. Indeed, they needed to find a replacement for Roberto Merhi, whom left the team after the 2018 Hungaroring Sprint Race after a disappointing run of qualifying performances. Boccolacci therefore came in to complete the rest of the season, partnering Ralph Boschung as he made his debut in Spa.
