Early careerEdit

In October 2011, Lucas Auer won the 2011 JK Racing Asia Series season championship. Then the young Austrian tested a F3 Euroseries car at Valencia, with his 52-year-old uncle Gerhard Berger looking on.[2]

On 25 August 2012, Auer, driving for Van Amersfoort Racing, won the 21st round of the German F3 season, held at the 4.534-kilometre Lausitzring. He finished second in the Championship.[3]

After the 4 season Mercedes Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters campaign, in December of 2018 the Red Bull Junior Team announced that Auer would join the junior program from the 2019 season and he was confirmed to race the Super Formula Championship 2019 season[4].
