The remarkable career turnaround of Enzo Fittipaldi

By:

Sixth in the F2 standings heading into this month's final round, but within touching distance of third, Enzo Fittipaldi has quietly put together a strong first full season in the Formula 1 support series, recovering well from the scary Jeddah start crash that cut his 2021 campaign short. It marks a turn in fortunes for the Brazilian who thought he'd bid hopes of a career in Europe goodbye two years ago.

At the end of 2020, Enzo Fittipaldi thought his days of racing in Europe were over. Having lost his biggest sponsor amid the ongoing shockwave of the COVID pandemic, the Brazilian parted ways with the Ferrari Driver Academy and signed up to drive on the third rung of the Road to Indy ladder - Indy Pro 2000 - for 2021, his hopes of a second FIA Formula 3 season in tatters.

But today, nearing the end of his first full season in FIA Formula 2 with Charouz Racing System, he's on an even keel in the standings with drivers touted as future Formula 1 prospects and ahead of several who have managed F1 mileage in Friday practice sessions this year. It's been quite the turnaround for the grandson of two-time F1 world champion Emerson, who finished only 15th in the standings in his first F3 campaign with HWA Racelab alongside teammates Jake Hughes and Jack Doohan.
