Ferrari Formula One test driver Callum Ilott to race full 2022 IndyCar Series with Juncos Hollinger Racing


Callum Ilott has signed a deal to race a full IndyCar Series campaign with Juncos Hollinger Racing.

The 22-year-old, who is a Ferrari test driver and Alfa Romeo reserve in Formula 1, completed this season in America with the team, taking part in the final three races.

Now the former Bishop’s Stortford College student is looking forward to competing in all 17 events – 12 road and street courses along with five oval circuits – in 2022.

“Knowing what Ricardo Juncos and Brad Hollinger [team managers] have in place for next season, and especially over the winter of what we can do in testing, I definitely feel we can put ourselves in a great position to start off the 2022 season strong,” said Ilott.

“I look forward to continuing the work that we are doing and heading into the winter to start a new journey over here. I would like to thank the Ferrari Driver Academy for allowing me to take this opportunity.”

Juncos said: “Callum has shown us he is the right driver for our full-time run next year, so we are thrilled to have him.”
