Zolt Baumgartner 2003 Jordan portrait

Zsolt Baumgartner

Born January 1st 1981 in Budapest, Hungary

After testing with the Jordan team during 2003, F3000 regular Baumgartner became the first Hungarian GP driver when he substituted for Ralph Firman at the Hungarian and Italian races. His performance was good enough that when combined with sponsorship money from various Hungarian companies, he secured the second Minardi seat for 2004. Thanks to multiple retirements at the 2004 US GP he scored his first Championship point (and the first for Minardi since Mark Webber at the 2002 Australian GP).
