Antonelli’s meteoric rise through the ranks

Mercedes were thrown a complete curveball at the start of this year’s Formula One calendar when seven time World Champion Lewis Hamilton announced he would be leaving for Ferrari in 2025. ‘I’m really keen and happy to see [Antonelli] in a F1 car. Two years later Antonelli made his single-seated debut in the fifth round of the 2021 Italian Formula 4 Championship, driving for Prema weeks after his 15th birthday. Antonelli credits his father Marco for getting him involved in karting and race car driving. The Mercedes prodigy’s father was also a racing diver and is currently the owner of the AKM Motorsport group that races in the Italian Formula 4 Championship. 2021: Italian Formula 4 Championship – 10th (9 races) FIA Central European Zone Formula 4 – 9th (2 races) Abu Dhabi Grand Prix F4 UAE Trophy Race – 3rd.
