Biography

Nicolas Longuet was born on 8 June 2002 in Turin, Italy. The young Franco-Italian now lives near Aix-en-Provence, in the south of France. Nicolas studied at the American School in South Africa and at the International Bilingual School of Provence.
Passionate about motorsports from a very young age, Nicolas has always dreamed of being one of the elite drivers, especially in the best category : Formula 1.
Karting being the most common way for young 4-wheeled prodigies, it was only natural that Nicolas wanted to start his career in this way, like his idol Lewis Hamilton. For various reasons, this goal could not be achieved, but Nicolas Longuet discovered that his dream could be pursued through video games.
Nicolas bought his first F1 simracing game after discovering F1esport. Quickly at ease with the game and a joystick not being enough anymore for him, he bought a flywheel and started to develop his skills as a driver.
After a first competition in March 2018, the young prodigy won his first title a few months later.
In March 2019, Nicolas reached the legal age to register for the F1esport and was able to qualify for the Prodraft among the 110,000 competitors. Nicolas was then hired by Red Bull to take part in the 2019 Pro Series, after being crowned vice-champion of France 2019.
Rookie of the team, he knew how to take his responsibilities and participated actively in training and bootcamps, accompanied by the Red Bull team.
Nicolas is still the youngest F1esport driver ever to have climbed on a podium, finishing on the second step ahead of the 2019 World Champion. Nicolas concluded 2019 with a F1esport Team World Champion title alongside Frederik Rasmussen and Joni Tormala.
However, the young French driver does not intend to stop at a simulated title and sees esport as a gateway to conventional motorsport, his primary objective.
