meet Nyck

Scuderia Alpha Tauri’s Dutch driver, Nyck de Vries, was born on 6 February 1995 in Sneek. With a racing driver father, Nyck was always going to be keen on racing and he started karting from an early age, going on to make his mark on the international stage in this discipline.

Having put together a long string of wins in karts, in 2012 he made the move up to single-seaters. He started off in the Formula Renault 2.0 EuroCup and Northern European Cup and continued his learning curve in this formula for two more years, taking the Alps and Eurocup titles. In 2015, he moved up to the 3.5 Series, finishing the season in third place and best rookie, with one win to his name.

In 2016, De Vries raced in the GP3 Series before spending three seasons in Formula 2. After a tricky start, he went on to win the title in 2019 before switching to Formula E and being crowned 2020-2021 World Champion in the all-electric series. He also raced in the LMP2 class in WEC, twice competing in the Le Mans 24 Hours, finishing third in class and seventh overall in 2022.
The next step in Nyck de Vries’ eclectic career saw him still on the books at Mercedes as third driver for its Formula 1 team. With backing from the German constructor, he drove in three free practice sessions in 2022, at the Spanish GP with Williams, in France with Mercedes and in the Italian GP at the wheel of an Aston Martin. Then, on that same weekend in Monza, Nyck was called up by Williams to stand in for Alex Albon, who was unwell, racing to ninth place on his debut.

On 22 November 2022, two days after the F1 season finale in Abu Dhabi, De Vries had his first drive at the wheel of a Scuderia AlphaTauri AT03, as part of the Young Driver Test at the Yas Marina circuit. It rounded off an unusual record in that he had driven four different F1 cars in the same season, thus gaining valuable experience in this new generation of cars.
Nyck de Vries will now drive for Scuderia AlphaTauri in the 2023 Formula 1 World Championship, alongside Yuki Tsunoda.
