Martinius Stenshorne joins McLaren Driver Development programme

HitechGP’s Martinius Stenshorne is delighted to join the McLaren Driver Development programme.

Eighteen-year-old Martinius, from Norway, will join McLaren’s talent pipeline which has an overarching aim to help drivers progress towards the pinnacle of Motorsport, F1, as well as the NTT INDYCAR Series and the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.

I’m incredibly excited to join the McLaren Driver Development programme, it’s an honour to now be part of the McLaren family. The team has a great history of developing talent, so I’m looking forward to growing with the team and learning from their expertise as I continue on my journey towards the top of motorsport.

Martinius’ impressive junior record and strong potential were key levers in his selection. Born into a rallying family, he started racing aged four. Martinius secured multiple international karting championships before a move to Formula 4, where he scored three podiums across the UAE, German and Italian Championships. Managed by Nicolas Todt’s All Road Management, in 2023 the Norwegian driver competed in the Formula Regional European Championship where he became the first rookie to win their debut race. He finished as vice-champion of the series with four further wins to his name.

Heading into round 3 in Imola this weekend, Martinius currently sits on 10 points in the FIA Formula 3 Championship after winning the sprint race in Melbourne.
