PHM Racing recruit Roberto Faria

PHM Racing by Charouz have locked in the second of their three drivers for the 2023 FIA Formula 3 season announcing that Robert Faria will be racing for the German outfit.

The Brazilian joins the grid for his fifth season of single-seater racing after making his debut back in 2019 where he finished 11th in the British F4 Championship.

The following year saw him dovetail a half-season return to British F4 where he scored two podiums in the opening two rounds, alongside a four-round stint in the British F3 Championship.

Sticking with GB3 Championship in 2021 and 2022, the 19 year old went on to take two consecutive fifth placed finishes in the Standings, achieving one win and a further 14 podiums.

Faria already has plenty of mileage in the F3 car under his belt, having completed 213 laps during post-season testing in Jerez last year.

I’m really delighted to join PHM Racing by Charouz in the FIA Formula 3 on their new project. It feels like a dream coming true. Even without knowing most of the circuits in the calendar I’ll do my best to deliver great results and to show the team why they have put their trust in me. I cannot wait to start racing in Bahrain.

Roberto ‘Beto’ Faria is one of these young passionate Brazilian talents with raw speed, ambition and demanding focus. His testing was promising, but now, we need to bring him into the working attitude, which is necessary to succeed in FIA F3. So the balance of speed and patience should affect good results through the season. In GB3 UK he was several times on the podium and finished 5th overall.
