CareerEdit

KartingEdit

Tuscher began karting in 2004 and raced primarily in his native Switzerland for the majority of his career, winning Swiss KF3 championship in 2008.[1]

Formula Pilota ChinaEdit

In 2011 at just fourteen years, Tuscher graduated to single–seaters, racing in the newly launched Formula Pilota China series in Asia for Jenzer Welch Asia Racing under Czech racing license.[2] He dominated from beginning of the season, winning eight races on all six venues and the championship title.

FIA Formula Two ChampionshipEdit

In 2012 Tuscher stepped up into FIA Formula Two Championship. He became the youngest ever driver in the revived category, competing at the age of fifteen.[3] On his series début at Silverstone, Tuscher qualified on pole position by 0.2 seconds from closest rival Luciano Bacheta.[4] He finished sixth and fifth in the weekend's races. He scored his first podium of the series in the following round in Algarve, finishing second in both races, and moving into second in the standings.

Formula Renault 3.5 SeriesEdit

Tuscher made his Formula Renault 3.5 Series debut at Motorland Aragón, replacing Emmanuel Piget at Zeta Corse team.[5]
