CareerEdit

KartingEdit

Born in Oslo but raised in Aurskog, Hauger began karting at the age of five, having accompanied his father to numerous motor events from an early age, before going professional in 2011, leading to dominant drives in the Mini category and titles in the Italian and WSK Championships.[1][2][3] In 2016, Hauger became the youngest driver to ever claim the DKM title at junior level and repeated that record the following year to become the youngest ever champion in the senior level of DKM.[4]

Lower formulaeEdit

In October 2017, Hauger graduated to single-seaters, competing alongside fellow Red Bull junior Jack Doohan in the British F4 Championship with the TRS Arden Junior Team.[5] There, Hauger claimed four wins, four pole positions, four fastest laps and ten podiums to take fourth in the championship, but lost out on the rookie champion title to Doohan.[6][7][8]

In January 2019, Hauger moved to Van Amersfoort Racing to contest a dual campaign of the ADAC and Italian F4 Championships.[9]

Formula OneEdit

In September 2017, Hauger was named as a new recruit to the Red Bull Junior Team, alongside fellow karters Doohan, Jonny Edgar and Harry Thompson.[10]
