Victor Martins signs with the Renault Sport Academy after an excellent rookie season in single-seaters, where he clinched the Junior Championship in French F4.
Victor, a former French champion gymnast, narrowly missed out on the Drivers’ title to fellow new Academy recruit Arthur, but nonetheless made a mark in his rookie year.
A successful karter, he won the CIK-FIA World Championship in 2016. Victor later entered as a guest driver for the Le Mans round of the French F4 championship that year and recorded two podiums.
In 2017, he entered the series for the full season, finishing on 299 points courtesy of eleven podiums, four wins and nine pole positions along the way.
