Oliver Rowland (born 10 August 1992) is a British racing driver, who competed in the 2017 FIA Formula 2 Championship with DAMS.[1] A former front runner in F2, Rowland would leave the series for a reserve/junior driver roll in Formula One, before entering the FIA Formula E Championship in 2018/19.[2]

Background

A promising youngster, Rowland started karting at the age of seven before going on to win numerous Club and National level Championships.[3] 2010 saw Rowland get a chance in a racing car for the first time, joining Formula Renault UK Winter Series, competing against several future Formula One stars.[3] One victory, and seventh overall, was enough to earn Rowland a drive in the full Formula Renault UK Championship.[3]

His run to second in Formula Renault UK earned Rowland the McLaren Autosport BRDC Award in 2011, before moving to the Eurocup version of the Series.[3] Two successful seasons saw Rowland progress to the Formula Renault 3.5 Series in 2014, taking two wins on his way to fourth.[3] A dominant display in 2015 saw Rowland take the title, with the Brit also making his debut in the FIA Formula E Championship.[4]
