Christian Mansell will return for a second FIA Formula 3 campaign in 2024, partnering up with ART Grand Prix after a season with Campos Racing.

The 18-year-old secured two podium finishes in his rookie year in the Silverstone Sprint Race and Spa-Francorchamps Feature Race, for which he earned the Dallara Award for Best Comeback of the Year.

After concluding the campaign 12th in the Standings, he completed all three post-season tests with the French outfit alongside an appearance at the Macau Grand Prix. Having already had time to adjust to his new environment, Mansell says he’s looking to push himself and the team further up the order next year.

"I’m super happy to sign with ART Grand Prix for the 2024 FIA Formula 3 season. I’m looking forward to working with the team to achieve better results in the Teams’ Championship and for myself as a driver next year.

“I’ve already competed in Macau with the team, so I'm very well integrated into the ART Grand Prix group, and I could not be happier. I’m really excited to start this new journey and I’m eagerly anticipating the upcoming race in Bahrain!"

Mansell’s racing journey began in karting back at home in Australia, before stepping up to single seaters in 2019 with appearances in the New South Wales Formula Race Car Championship and the Australian Formula 4 Championship.

Moving to the United Kingdom, he made a strong first impression in his 2020 British F4 campaign. Scoring one win and five podiums, he finished seventh in the Standings and was crowned the Rookies’ Cup Champion. In 2021, he joined the GB3 Championship grid, achieving two wins and five podiums to secure third.

The next year he fought for the title in Euroformula Open, ultimately finishing third with three wins and a further 12 podium finishes to his name. In addition, he made his F3 debut with a two-round appearance for Charouz Racing System in Budapest and Spa.

ART Team Principal Sébastien Philippe added: "Christian has shown he has a good ability to learn and progress with a strong second half of the 2023 season. He confirmed his qualities to the team during the off-season tests and in Macau. In 2024, he will have everything he needs to blossom and achieve both his goals as well as those of the team.”
