CareerEdit

Lower formulaeEdit

In 2016, Fittipaldi graduated to car racing in the Ginetta Junior Championship with Douglas Motorsport.[4]

In 2017, Fittipaldi was signed with Prema Powerteam for the Italian F4 Championship,[5] where he finished 9th in the championship. He remained in the championship for 2018, which he won against drivers like Leonardo Lorandi and Olli Caldwell.

Formula Regional European ChampionshipEdit

In 2019 Fittipaldi competed in the 2019 Formula Regional European Championship for the Prema Powerteam alongside Frederik Vesti and Olli Caldwell. He won two races, scored 11 more podiums and finished 2nd in the championship, only behind Vesti. He also helped his team win the team championship.

FIA Formula 3 ChampionshipEdit

Fittipaldi drove for HWA Racelab in the 2020 FIA Formula 3 Championship, partnering Jake Hughes and Red Bull junior Jack Doohan. With a best race result of fourth at the final race of the season Enzo placed 15th in the standings, eight places behind his vastly more experienced teammate Hughes, but eleven positions ahead of fellow rookie Doohan.

In May 2021, it was announced that Fittipaldi would drive for Charouz Racing System in the 2021 FIA Formula 3 Championship, partnering Reshad de Gerus and Logan Sargeant.[6] He scored his first and only podium of the season in race 2 at the Hungaroring.[7] After that round he was replaced in his seat by American Hunter Yeany.[8]

Indy Pro 2000 ChampionshipEdit

In February 2021 it was confirmed that Fittipaldi would compete in the Indy Pro 2000 Championship for RP Motorsport.[9] However, after the first round of the season the Brazilian left the championship. In an interview with his former F3 teammate Jake Hughes in June of that year Fittipaldi confirmed that he would not be returning to the series.[10]

FIA Formula 2 ChampionshipEdit

In September 2021 it was announced that Fittipaldi would step up to Formula 2 to race throughout the second half of the season with Charouz Racing System, alongside compatriot Guilherme Samaia.[11] Fittipaldi replaced David Beckmann, who was forced to vacate his seat due to financial difficulties, in the Charouz line-up.[12] A few days before his debut weekend Fittipaldi stated that he "wasn't really expecting" his F2 call-up before it happened, but was "looking forward to [racing at Monza]".[13]

Formula OneEdit

In November 2016, Fittipaldi was among five drivers invited to join the Ferrari Driver Academy and was confirmed as a member alongside Marcus Armstrong the following month.[14][15] In the winter of 2021 the Brazilian and Ferrari parted ways.[9]
