From BluWiki

Nathanaël Berthon (born July 1, 1989 in Romagnat) is a professional racing driver from France.



Berthon began his international karting career in 2006, with the highlights being a third place finish in the Copa Campeones Trophy ICA class and fifth in the French Championship Elite category. The following year he again finished fifth in the French Championship Elite class. He also finished eighth in the South Garda Winter Cup KF1 and 13th in the World Cup KF1 categories.

Formula Renault

In 2008, Berthon moved up to single-seaters, taking part in both the Formula Renault 2.0 West European Cup and Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 series for Boutsen Energy Racing. In the West European Cup he finished in the points on four occasions, scoring nine points to be classified in eighteenth place, whilst in the Eurocup he failed to score a point, with his best race result being a twelfth place at the Nürburgring meeting.

2009 saw Berthon remain in both series for a second season, this time racing for the Spanish team Epsilon Euskadi. He won his first Eurocup race at the opening round in Barcelona after team-mate Albert Costa was disqualified for a technical infringement. He followed that up with a further podium at the Hungaroring to finish sixth in the standings.

In the West European Cup, Berthon took a victory at Spa-Francorchamps along with six other podium finishes to finish third in championship, behind Jean-Eric Vergne and champion Costa. He was also crowned as French Formula Renault 2.0 champion, with the series being run as part of the West European Cup season.

Formula Renault 3.5 Series

In October 2009, Berthon sampled a Formula Renault 3.5 Series car for the first time, testing for Tech 1 Racing at Motorland Aragón in Spain as a reward for winning the French Formula Renault 2.0 title. He drove for the newly-crowned champions Draco Racing during the next test at the Circuit de Catalunya and on December 1, 2009 it was announced that he would drive for the team in the 2010 season. He will be joined in the team by Colombian driver Omar Leal.
