Hailing from the country where many illustrious drivers have emerged, over the years, the Brit’s journey in the sport began at the 2002 Hungarian Grand Prix with Minardi. He currently drives for the Honda-powered constructor Super Aguiri F1.
Like most compatriots, Davidson began kart racing at a tender age and was immensely triumphant right throughout his karting career. He won the British championships in the sport before moving on to Formula Ford at a later stage.
The highlight of the early stages of his career was when he was awarded the prestigious Autosport Young Driver of the Year Award (given only to drivers from the UK). The likes of David Coulthard and Jenson Button are two other drivers who have earned this prestigious honour during their careers.
Davidson’s next big step came in the form of British Formula Three Championship where he finished second overall and impressed the motorsport fraternity.
Following four good years of tremendous performances in various European series and a victory at the Spa Masters, the Hertfordshire-born driver was roped in by BAR (British American Racing) as test driver for the 2001 season. It was the time when the constructor was bettering its own performances and targeting a host of talented young drivers to accompany veteran Jacques Villeneuve.
