Alexander Rossi is an elite athlete and very accomplished professional race car driver. From 2009 – 2014 Alexander was the Test or Official Reserve Driver for BMW / Sauber, Team Lotus, Caterham and Marussia Formula One Teams. Each year as these Formula 1 teams built, tested and simulated for their new Formula 1 Challenger, Alexander’s talent and abilities proved invaluable for the development of each new Formula 1 car. For 2016, Alexander is taking his Formula 1 skill to Andretti Autosport to race in the #98 Honda IndyCar entry for the 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series.
In pursuit to Formula 1, Alexander moved to Europe at the age of 17 after winning the Formula BMW World Championships and qualifying for an F1 Super License testing for BMW / Sauber F1 Team. After a credentialed and successful stint in Formula 1, Alexander’s current focus is the Verizon IndyCar Series and Andretti Autosport where he resides in Indianapolis.
Alexander has won at every level since his racing career began in gokarts at the age of 10. By 2006 at 14 years of age, he’d become a multiple National and International Karting Champion and the youngest open wheel racing champion in United States history. By 2008 Rossi had become Formula BMW World Champion holding the most series poles (10) and victories (14). This earned him the coveted test with BMW Sauber F1 Team, making history at the time becoming the youngest driver at just 18 years old to hold a Formula One Super License.
With his stunning win at the Indy 500, Alexander has written his name into the history books and is now highly marked by the motorsport industry to become America’s next great racing hero.
