Career[edit]

Karting[edit]

Coming from a family with a racing background, Sauter started karting at the age of seven and began to compete in the Swiss Championship in 2013. He raced in go-karts until the end of 2020, winning the Vega Trofeo in 2014 and 2016 respectively, missing out on the chance of the 2015 title due to a ski accident.[2]

Lower formulae[edit]

Sauter racing in the 2021 ADAC Formula 4 Championship at the Red Bull Ring

In 2021, after some Formula 4 testing at Anneau du Rhin, Sauter made his car racing debut, competing in a family effort with the Sauter Engineering + Design team, named after his father's company, in the ADAC Formula 4 Championship.[3][4][5] In the final race of the second round at Circuit Zandvoort he score his only rookie win of the season.[6] He scored his first point in round three at the Hockenheimring, however a crash in qualifying at the next event at the Sachsenring meant extensive damage to his car, which could only be repaired in time for the second race with the help of other teams' mechanics.[5] In the final race of the event he went on to take his best finish of the season in fifth.[6] Saute became vice-champion in the rookie classification.[7]

In 2022 he remained in the ADAC Formula 4 Championship.[6][8][9] He finished the championship in thirteenth overall.[7]

In 2023 he moved to the Formula 4 CEZ Championship after the ADAC Formula 4 had folded.[7] He took his first and only race win in the final round at the newly opened Balaton Park Circuit.[10] He also finished third overall in the championship.[1]

Formula Regional Japanese Championship[edit]

In 2023 Sauter also competed in two rounds of the Formula Regional Japanese Championship with Sutekina Racing Team and Bionic Jack Racing. In the final round at Sportsland Sugo, where he competed with Bionic Jack Racing, he even took his first victory in the championship.[11]

After he joined the G Force Driver Development Program in 2024, he returned to the Formula Regional Japanese Championship, driving for Birth Racing Project..[1][12]
