Antonio Giovinazzi (born 14th December, 1993 in Martina Franca, Italy) is an Italian racing driver.

Early Career

After an impressive karting career between 2000 and 2011, during which he became Italian and European champion in his class, Giovinazzi began racing single seaters. Giovinazzi's first triumph came in the Chinese Formula Masters series in 2012 - which he used to springboard into European F3 series - culminating in a Zandvoort Masters win in 2015. Giovinazzi went stateside shortly after - reaching as high as the Indy Lights series in 2019.

Formula 2

In 2020, Giovinazzi was picked up by the Aspire Formula team to run in the series alongside Sophia Floersch. Giovinazzi's switch to the category paid off with two wins in the opening round at Brazil. Giovinazzi ultimately finished the season in second overall.

Giovinazzi's impressive form saw him receive an offer to test with Red Bull at their late season test session - however a protest from regular driver Daniel Melrose saw the offer be rescinded.
