Pietro Fittipaldi and Oliver Bearman revealed as Haas reserve drivers

February 8, 2024

MoneyGram Haas F1 Team have revealed their reserve drivers for the 2024 Formula One season, with Pietro Fittipaldi and Oliver Bearman taking up the two spots.

Bearman, who made his F1 debut last season in two FP1 sessions at the Mexican and Abu Dhabi Grands Prix, will also be racing for PREMA Racing in the upcoming Formula 2 season. He will take part in six FP1 sessions this year across the Emilia Romagna, Spanish, British, Hungarian, Mexican, and Abu Dhabi Grands Prix.

Fittipaldi, meanwhile, is in his sixth year with Haas F1. He will also be driving in the IndyCar Series for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing. 

Ayao Komatsu, Team Principal, MoneyGram Haas F1 Team, commented:

I’m pleased to have both Oliver Bearman and Pietro Fittipaldi as our reserve drivers. Oliver did a tremendous job for us last season settling in well and working through both his FP1 run programs in Mexico and Abu Dhabi and then with his test program. We’re looking forward to giving him the opportunity for more outings in FP1 in 2024 – with testing at a premium this is key running time, both for us to evaluate Oliver’s progress but also to enable him seat time in a Formula 1 car. 

Having Pietro with us for a sixth season is valuable as he again provides continuity and he’s been a great contributor to our program over the years – both on and off-track. We’re excited he’s landed a full-time IndyCar ride this season, so he can do what he loves to do – and that’s to race, but he’s there for us too as part of the Haas family.

Bearman said:

I’m really happy to be part of the MoneyGram Haas F1 Team for the upcoming season. I had a great experience last year working with everyone at the team and I’m looking forward to building on that this year. There are several events I’ll be doing FP1’s at – alongside the reserve duties, which is exciting. I’m grateful to the Haas F1 Team and Scuderia Ferrari for their faith and for supporting me.

Fittipaldi added:

I’m happy and proud to be going into my sixth season with the MoneyGram Haas F1 Team. I’m looking forward to continuing our work in development and supporting the team in the best way I can throughout the 2024 FIA Formula 1 World Championship.
