2013 Having moved to Manor MP Motorsport, Oliver added 3 victories to his win tally in Formula Renault Eurocup on his way to securing the vice-champion spot in the standings.

2015 Oliver claimed his first international title in Formula Renault 3.5, taking 8 wins in a dominant display. The same year, he competed in 4 GP2 Series weekends.

2016 Competing full-time on the Formula 1 support bill, Oliver made the switch to the GP2 Series where he took 4 podiums in his rookie campaign for MP Motorsport.

2017 As the GP2 Series became the FIA Formula 2 Championship, Oliver was signed by DAMS and took a development driver role with the Renault F1 team. A maiden F2 win came on the streets of Monaco, with a subsequent victory in Budapest securing him 3rd in the drivers’ championship.

2018/19 Racing in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship with Nissan e.dams, Oliver stunned in his debut season as he battled for victories and claimed 2 podiums to finish as the Rookie of the Year.
