Williams Racing is delighted to announce Luke Browning as the latest member of the team’s Driver Academy.
The 21-year-old currently competes for Hitech Pulse-Eight in the 2023 FIA Formula 3 Championship, sitting 10th in the Drivers’ Championship after races in Bahrain and Australia.
"I’m really looking forward to being a part of the Williams Racing Driver Academy,” Luke shared following the announcement.
"A huge thank you to everyone at Williams Racing for the opportunity to shoot for the stars.
"To be welcomed into the family is a dream come true, the heritage of this team is phenomenal. I can’t wait to see where we can go, our journey starts here."
Luke joins our Driver Academy after a successful 2022 season, claiming the GB3 Championship with Hitech GP with five race victories and eight further podiums.
The British racer also won one of the most prestigious accolades in motorsport, collecting the 2022 Autosport BRDC Young Driver of the Year Award in December.
In doing so, Luke joined an impressive list of previous victors including last year’s winner and fellow Williams Academy driver, Zak O’Sullivan, along with our Brand Ambassador and 2009 Formula 1 World Champion, Jenson Button.
