The story so far...

Petr’s journey through motorsport’s junior categories has been an impressive one. The successes that have earned him a call-up to the prestigious Sauber Academy driver development programme are detailed below.


2020 Season

Having enjoyed a successful first season in the Formula Renault Eurocup in 2019, Petr has joined the championship-winning R-ace GP squad for the 2020 season. After learning what is required to be successful in Renault Sport’s highly-competitive single-seater championship, the 17-year-old is determined to build on his impressive rookie form in 2019 and become a regular podium finisher during the upcoming season.

This is a famous old circuit that’s just been overhauled for F1. Being on the coast and right by the North Sea, it can get very windy and it’s quite common for the track to have a sprinkling of sand on it. That presents an unusual challenge!

This is a circuit that has everything. The first sector is high speed, the second is medium and the third is low. That means it’s really important to factor how your tyres will come in.

This is where you can show how big your balls really are! This is a super high-speed circuit and it’s beautiful. The run through ‘Eau Rouge’ is magical and it really tickles you when you take it flat for the first time.

This isn’t one of my favourite venues. When I raced there last year it was very cold and rainy. It’s quite a low grip track and I found it hard to get the tyres to work properly in the past. That’s not a combination that gives you much confidence.

This is a track that I don’t look forward to racing on. For me, it has no character and I honestly find the configuration a bit dull. Last year I was flipped over at Turn One so this isn’t a track that holds particularly good memories for me!

This is a futuristic circuit from the outside and it looks amazing. But I don’t find it too enjoyable to race on. The layout is simple and I don’t really find it much of a challenge from the driving side. It doesn’t give you a buzz like other tracks.
