The next steps for Pourchaire after an F2 title miss

Theo Pourchaire entered the 2022 Formula 2 season a firm favourite for the title after remaining with ART Grand Prix for a second season. But an unexpected charge from Felipe Drugovich and MP Motorsport meant the Frenchman was forced to settle for second. What went wrong for the Sauber protege, and where does he go from here?

Theo Pourchaire had a bright year ahead of him before the start of the 2022 Formula 2 season. He had finished fifth in his 2021 rookie campaign with ART Grand Prix, the then-18-year-old becoming the youngest ever series winner as he dominated the Monaco feature race, underlining his status as one of the most promising young drivers on the junior single-seater ladder. The Sauber Academy member was the highest-placed returning driver from last year’s cohort, and had his eyes firmly on the prize.

Remaining with French outfit ART, he started as he meant to go on by taking victory in the year's opening feature race in Bahrain to claim an early lead in the standings. Failing to score in Jeddah the next time out hampered his chances somewhat, but he was back on top after round three in Imola thanks to another feature race win while scooping a precious two points from Saturday’s reverse-grid sprint race.
