Hadrien joins the Renault Sport Academy following a triumphant season in the French F4 Championship, where he won the title courtesy of his seven wins and seven further podiums. 2020 will see Hadrien race in the Formula Renault Eurocup with MP Motorsport.
How pleased are you to join the Renault Sport Academy?
It’s a dream coming true! A lot of sacrifices were made to reach such an important step in my career. My goal has always been to join the Renault Sport Academy and it’s a marvellous feeling to join this legendary French team.
What was it like winning French Formula 4 last season?
It was not an easy season. My goal – as a rookie – was to win the title to step up to the Formula Renault Eurocup category in 2020. We’ve been working very hard physically and on track during the winter. Becoming the youngest FIA F4 Champion in history at the end of the season was a very good achievement.
How much are you looking forward to racing in the Formula Renault Eurocup?
I’ve been watching every single race of the Formula Renault Eurocup since I was nine! It hasn’t sunk in that I’ll be racing instead of watching it! Wearing Renault colours in this challenging championship is by far the best thing I could’ve expected. I will do my absolute best to be on the podium and win races.
What will your targets be this season?
The target is clear: win the rookie title, score as many points as possible and maybe more. I know that it will not be an easy season, even more so considering that I’ll be the youngest driver on the grid. We are all working very hard to make it happen. I can’t wait for the season to start.
Do you have an interesting fact about yourself?
Before starting in karting, I started with motocross. One day the accelerator got stuck and I had a minor accident in my garden. So, I decided to stop and turn to 4-wheels instead!
