Martins returns after a fifth-place finish in the 2023 Formula 2 season, taking rookie of the year honours. His teammate, Theo Pourchaire, won the title, and the pair took ART to the Teams Championship by 31 points over PREMA Racing.

In his first season, Martins took one race win (a Feature Race win in Silverstone) and a total of nine podiums (including a third place in the first race of the season).

Martins is staying with ART Grand Prix for a second season, now alongside British O’Sullivan, who finished runner-up in Formula 3 last year.

Quotes

“Together with ART Grand Prix, we have a mutual past that is made up of passion and success,” said Martins. “One which has seen the crowning of several titles, I hope to add another in 2024, a decisive season for my development.

“But I will not have my eyes solely focused on the standings: I want to correct mistakes from last year, manage the championship over time and always strive to obtain the best possible result, whether the circumstances are favourable or complicated.

“There is no shortage of serious competitors in this discipline. There is also an element of unknowns with a new car, but I trust ART Grand Prix to make the most out of it. The team supplies me with all the support I need, just like Alpine, and I am holding all the cards I need to achieve my objectives.”

ART Grand Prix Team Principal Sebastien Philippe is excited to continue Martins’ long standing relationship with the team. “The collaboration between ART Grand Prix and Victor dates back to 2020 when he was successfully crowned the Formula Renault champion,” he said. “We did a good job and have grown together since then.

“Therefore, I didn’t envisage not continuing our adventure with him. His first year in Formula 2 was very good and very informative. It allowed him to constantly fight for pole positions and victories. In 2024, our common objective will logically be to erase any small mistakes from last season and win the title.”
