The Estonian is a truly talented youngster and part of the Red Bull Junior team. Born in 2000, he started racing karts at the age of 11, immediately showing what he could do, winning several titles in various categories.

Juri took the big step from karts to single-seaters in 2016, competing in the Italian Formula 4 championship. He took one win, two pole positions and three fastest race laps, finishing the series in fifth place. The following year he took his first title, winning the ADAC Formula 4 championship. Having also raced in European Formula 3, he joined the Red Bull Junior Programme in 2019. He was due to race in Super Formula in Japan in 2020, but the travel restrictions imposed due to the Covid-19 pandemic meant he was unable to take part. A few races in Formula Regional preceded Juri taking the step up to Formula 2, the series in which he is currently competing, this year racing for the Hitech GP team.

Juri Vips has already had a taste of what it’s like to drive a Formula 1 car. After been granted an F1 Superlicense in 2020, he tested for Red Bull Racing at Silverstone and then drove in the Abu Dhabi rookie driver tests in 2020 and 2021. In 2022, Juri is the official Reserve Driver for Red Bull Racing and, in addition he fulfils that role for Scuderia AlphaTauri in the Grands Prix outside Europe. For European races, that role is filled by Liam Lawson another Red Bull Junior Team member.
