After an early career in karting, Sirotkin moved in to single seaters at the age of 15 and impressed in Formula Abarth, A handful of races in his first year didn't inspire, but his first full season saw him take the championship with 175 points.
A swift move up to the Italian Formula Three championship saw him secure two victories, but even more impressive was his campaign in Auto GP as he finished third in the championship with two wins and a further seven podiums.
Having moved up to World Series by Renault at the tender age of 17, Sirotkin started inconsistently, with a second place at Aragon one of only four points-scoring finishes in the opening 11 races. However, his big chance came when Russian investors secured a deal with Sauber which would see Sirotkin promoted to test driver in 2014 in order to obtain a superlicense.
