Sergey Olegovich Sirotkin (Russian: Серге́й Оле́гович Сиро́ткин; [sʲɪrˈɡʲej ɐˈlʲɛɡəvʲɪtɕ sʲɪˈrotkʲɪn], born 27 August 1995 in Moscow) is a professional racing driver from Russia currently competing in the 2017 FIA Formula 2 Championship for ART Grand Prix. He was the 2011 Formula Abarth European Series champion. In July 2013, Sirotkin joined the Sauber Formula One team as a development driver as part of a tie-in with Russian investors with a view to promoting him to a race seat as early as 2014.

Sirotkin began karting in 2008 and raced in various international series, working his way up from the junior ranks to progress through to the KF3 and KF2 category by 2010.

Formula Abarth

Having turned fifteen years old, Sirotkin graduated to single-seaters, racing in the newly launched Formula Abarth series in Italy for Jenzer Motorsport. He made his début at Vallelunga, finishing the first race in the points and later added four more point-scoring finishes to finish 18th in the championship. Sirotkin remained in Formula Abarth, and with Jenzer, for a second season in 2011; the series splitting into two separate classifications for European and Italian championship races. But prior to the round at Spa, Sirotkin switched to the Euronova Racing by Fortec team. He won the European Series title with a race to spare, taking five wins in fourteen races. In the Italian Series, Sirotkin finished as runner-up with two race victories, losing out to former team-mate Patric Niederhauser after an error in the final race at Autodromo Nazionale Monza.

Auto GP World Series

In 2012, Sirotkin continued his collaboration with Euronova Racing into the Auto GP World Series. His first round at Monza saw him qualify on the front row, losing pole position to Adrian Quaife-Hobbs by just 0.04 seconds. He stalled at the start of the first race, but recorded a finish of fourth place in the second race; he also set the fastest lap in both races. At Valencia, he again started behind points leader Quaife-Hobbs, but this time Sirotkin passed him before the first turn, and eventually scored his first win—again setting fastest lap—becoming the youngest Auto GP winner in the process. After another fastest lap in the second race, Sirotkin established a record of four consecutive fastest laps; breaking a record previously held by Romain Grosjean. Sirotkin went on to finish the season in third place overall, behind Quaife-Hobbs and Pål Varhaug. He finished the season with two race wins in Valencia and Sonoma, and seven podium finishes. He also recorded his first pole position at the Marrakech Street Circuit.

Formula Three

Sirotkin also participared in the Italian Formula Three Championship in 2012, driving for Euronova. He recorded two wins at the Hungaroring and Monza, and a further four podium finishes over the course of the season. He also scored points in twenty-two of the twenty-four races—after retiring from the second race at Vallelunga and being disqualified from the third race at Monza—and finished the season fifth overall in both the European and Italian Series championships.

Formula Renault 3.5 Series

Sirotkin made his Formula Renault 3.5 debut in his home event at the Moscow Raceway, partnering fellow Russian driver Nikolay Martsenko at BVM Target. He finished the first race of the meeting in twentieth place, before retiring from the second race.

Sirotkin expanded his Formula Renault 3.5 campaign to contest a full season in 2013, competing with ISR Racing. He had podiums at Alcañiz and Hungaroring with another three point-scoring finishes to achieve the ninth place in the championship standings.

For 2014 Sirotkin switched to the Fortec Motorsport team and partnered there with Oliver Rowland. He scored his first pole position and won his first Formula Renault 3.5 Series race on his home soil at Moscow Raceway. Despite this, the second Forteс car often broke and he did not finish in 5 races. But whenever he finished a race, he usually did this in points, missing a points finish only once. Overall, he finished 5th in the championship, with 132 points.

Formula One

In July 2013, Sirotkin joined the Sauber Formula One team, with the aim of participating in Friday sessions in 2013 and a full race seat for the 2014 Formula One season. But in 2014 he stayed in the team only as test driver. Sirotkin participated in tests that took place in Bahrain on April 8. The Russian driver did 75 laps and covered a distance of over 300 kilometres, recording the 8th fastest time. This result allowed Sirotkin to get a Superlicence. Sirotkin made his race weekend debut in free practice at the 2014 Russian Grand Prix where he recorded the 17th fastest time, about four tenths of a second slower than his more experienced team-mate Adrian Sutil. Sirotkin failed to sign a contract with Sauber for 2015 – the Swiss team completely changed its structure and selected drivers with good financing.

In April 2016, Sirotkin's F1 chances were revived when it was announced that he would act as a development driver for the Renault Sport F1 Team and would partake in the first free practice session of the Russian Grand Prix.

GP2 Series

In February 2015, it was announced that Sirotkin would debut in the series with Rapax. He achieved his first victory at Silverstone by winning the feature race, thus ending Stoffel Vandoorne's four-race feature win streak. Though a GP2 rookie, Sirotkin finished third in the overall standings.

For the 2016 season, Sirotkin will switch to defending champions ART Grand Prix.
