CareerEdit

KartingEdit

Fewtrell was born in Birmingham, and began karting in 2009 at the age of ten.[1] He went on to take major karting titles in 2013 and 2014.

In 2015, Fewtrell graduated to single-seaters, partaking in the MRF Challenge where he finished eleventh.

The following year, Fewtrell joined Carlin for a campaign in British F4.[2] He took three victories and claimed the championship in the final race at Brands Hatch.[3]

Formula RenaultEdit

In December 2016, Fewtrell was named as part of Tech 1 Racing's driver line-up for the 2017 seasons of Formula Renault 2.0.[4] He won race at Red Bull Ring on his way to the rookies' title and the sixth place in the drivers' championship.[5][6]

The following year, Fewtrell switched to reigning team champions R-ace GP.[7] Achieving six wins, including becoming the first driver since Nyck de Vries to claim a double victory across a two race weekend at Hockenheim, and six pole positions, Fewtrell claimed the title in the season finale after a season-long battle with fellow Renault junior Christian Lundgaard.[8][9]
