My name is Matteo Quintarelli, I am Italian and I am 16 years old. I started karting in a small regional race in Italy. From then on, I couldn't go a minute without thinking about racing. At the time, I was living in Bahrain and I started racing in the Bahrain Rotax Championship. After my first year, having stepped on the podium 5 out of 8 times, I claimed the title of Bahrain Vice Champion. The following year, we moved to Dubai. I joined George Gibbons Motorsport, and we went on to claim the Mini vice championship. In the next year, in a new category, I fought against all odds and claimed the most wins, as well as the vice championship title, two years in a row.In the summer of 2022, the decision was made to step up to single-seater racing. After winning a shootout held by Yas Heat Racing, I was selected to race with them in 2023 in Formula 4. I then raced with the R Ace GP team in the Italian F4 Championship powered by Abarth with promising results, and I joined SaintEloc Racing for the 2024 campaign.
