Bruno Michel has played a defining role in the careers of some of Formula 1’s biggest names. From Giancarlo Fisichella and Mark Webber, to Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton, and more recently, Charles Leclerc and George Russell.
Michel has spent 26-years working in motorsport, which began with French Formula 1 team Equipe Ligier in 1993, before his passion for nurturing young talent led him to the Renault Driver Development Programme. From here, he created the GP2 series in 2005 with Flavio Briatore, which took over from the ailing Formula 3000 Championship.
Now CEO of Formula 2, the Frenchman joins Alex Jacques and Rosanna Tennant in the latest episode of F2: The Road to F1, for an all-access pass into the world of junior formula.
The F2 boss speaks with passion and knowledge, as well as his usual brand of sharp wit, on his career to date, including the “bittersweet” 2019 season, which saw another driver complete the Road to F1, in Nicholas Latifi, but also the tragic loss of Anthoine Hubert, in Belgium.
