Nyck de Vries is a Mercedes-EQ Formula E Team Race Driver and Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team Reserve Driver. Born in Sneek, Netherlands, he has achieved success in every racing category he has competed in and is one of his county’s brightest young racing stars.
After a successful stint in karting both locally and internationally, Nyck made the move up to single-seaters in 2012, spending the next three seasons in various Formula Renault 2.0 series – claiming both the Eurocup and Alps titles in 2014, before moving up to Formula Renault 3.5 the following season and finishing P3 in the standings.
GP3 was next up and Nyck claimed two victories across the season, before moving up to the next ladder of the F1 support bill – Formula 2. He split his rookie season between Rapax and Racing Engineering, claiming one win and four further podiums.
After showing promising signs in that first season, he moved to Pertamina Prema Theodore Racing for 2018 and finished P4 overall with three victories that season. He also started competing in endurance racing in 2018, in the LMP2 category of the FIA WEC with Racing Team Nederland.
