Zoël Amberg (born 25 September 1992) is a Swiss former racing driver, who competed in the FIA GP2 Series during the 2015 season with Daiko Team Lazarus.[1] Having only secured enough funds to complete a few races in 2015, Amberg would not race again beyond 2016 due to health concerns.[2]

Background

Amberg began his career in karting, competing primarily in his native Switzerland from 2004 through to the end of 2008.[3] 2009 saw the Swiss racer graduate to his first single seater campaign, joining the Italian Formula Renault Championship, as well as its Swiss counterpart.[3] Fourth and fifth in each respective series earned Amberg a seat in the newly formed FR Middle European Championship, which the Swiss racer would go on to win with six race victories.[3]

Slow Burn

For 2011 Amberg would secure a seat in the GP3 Series as well as a handful of races in European F3 Open, claiming one win in the latter.[3] An otherwise quiet season saw the Swiss racer transfer his colours to the Formula Renault 3.5 Series for 2012, although Amberg only claimed one point.[3] Regardless, Amberg would secure funds to stay in FR 3.5 for both 2013 and 2014, claiming a best end-of-season finish of eleventh in the latter campaign.[3]

GP2 Series History

Post GP2 Series Career

Amberg would not be fit enough to race after his accident in Monte Carlo, and duly dropped off the entry list for GP2, as well as his complimentary World Endurance Championship on health grounds.[2] Amberg subsequently withdrew from racing at the end of the season, and has not raced in any category since the end of 2015.[3]
