Born in Saint Germain-en-Laye, Aubry began karting in 2008 at the age of eleven, partaking in events across Europe. One of his karting achievements was the third place in the KFJ class of the Andrea Margutti Trophy, when he finished ahead of such drivers as Jehan Daruvala and Lando Norris.[1]

In 2015, Aubry graduated to single-seaters. He competed in the French F4 Championship, where he won Hungaroring race and had another nine podium finishes. As a result, he finished in the top-three in the overall standings and as runner-up in the International F4 Championship standings.

Aubry continued with Tech 1 in 2017.[5] He won three races—two of them on Hungaroring and one at Spa—and had finished another five races on the podium position.[6][7] He ended the season fifth.[8] He again competed in the Formula Renault 2.0 Northern European Cup, ending the season fifth as well.[9]
