Franco and Zak are recognised in list of next generation talents

After both enjoying a solid first year to life in Formula 3, Franco Colapinto and Zak O’Sullivan have received further recognition.
The Williams Racing Driver Academy pair have been named in Formula 1’s ‘20 of the most exciting up-and-coming talents on the road to F1’ list.
Included alongside 18 other talented next gen racers, Franco and Zak’s efforts in the 2022 campaign have not gone unnoticed.
The 19-year-old Argentinian took pole on debut and celebrated two victories across the nine rounds, whilst his 17-year-old British colleague secured a memorable pole at his home race in Silverstone, as well as adding two podiums to his name.
In 2023, Franco will line-up for MP Motorsport and Zak will race for Prema with both aiming to build upon their rookie F3 season.
