Callum had his first drive on track in a kart just before his seventh birthday and took his ARKS race licence as soon as he was eight. By 12 years he had begun to impress the international karting scene by winning the under 16s Formula Kart Stars British Championship and finishing 3rd in the German National Championship (KFJ category).

At 13, Callum dominated the international under 15s KFJ category with wins in the WSK Masters Series and the WSK Final Cup, was runner up in the WSK Euro Series and CIK-FIA World Cup and was nominated as the youngest ever WSK Driver of the Year in 2012. Prior to his first season in cars, as a 15-year-old Callum won the senior CIK-FIA European Karting Championship in 2014, the WSK Super Master Series, and finished 4th in the CIK-FIA World Championship.

Callum's debut in single-seater racing at 16 was overseen by Dr Helmut Marko and he was Red Bull’s first ever driver to be taken straight from karting to F3 in Red Bull livery, competing in the FIA F3 European Championship. His first season in cars saw him finish 12th overall of a grid of 35 seasoned drivers. In only his second season racing cars, Callum finished sixth overall in the 2016 FIA F3 European Championship. He was also the highest placed finishing British driver in the FIA F3 World Cup in November at the Macau Grand Prix.

In the 2017 FIA F3 European Championship, Callum finished fourth overall with seven wins and 12 podiums, taking more pole positions and fastest laps than any other driver, plus a win in the Macau GP Qualification Race. 

In the 2018 GP3 Series, as a rookie, Callum finished third overall with two wins achieved during seven consecutive podium-scoring race weekends. 

Callum was hand-picked by Ferrari to join its development programme, the Ferrari Driver Academy at the end of that year.

In 2019 Callum drove for the Sauber Junior Team in the FIA F2 Championship securing 2 podiums and 3 pole positions during his rookie season.


Callum is a BRDC SuperStar and Motorsport UK Academy Team UK member, and also made his first F1 Test debut in May 2019 in the Alfa-Romeo Racing C38 at Barcelona’s Circuit de Catalunya.
