Red Bull Junior Driver Hauger Reflects on Challenging F2 Seasons
Norwegian driver Dennis Hauger joined the renowned Red Bull junior scheme in 2018, marking the beginning of his car racing career. With the support of the energy drink giant, Hauger achieved great success by clinching the FIA Formula 3 title in 2021.
Despite his impressive debut in the F3 series, Hauger’s performance in the subsequent two seasons of Formula 2 has left much to be desired. Last year, driving for Prema, he finished in 10th place overall, falling short of expectations. Currently, Hauger occupies the eighth position in the standings leading up to the final race of the season.
Throughout his F2 journey, Hauger has remained resilient and focused, demonstrating his determination to overcome setbacks. Despite not meeting the high hopes placed upon him, the talented young driver harbors no bitterness towards Red Bull’s decision to drop him from their program.
Hauger’s journey in the world of motorsport serves as a reminder that success is not always immediate and that even highly regarded talents encounter obstacles along their path. His determination and ability to maintain a positive mindset prove crucial in navigating the challenging landscape of professional racing.
