Isaakyan's main racing program for 2014 was in the Formula Renault 2.0 Alps championship, racing for Italian team JD Motorsport.[8] He was ineligible to race at the first round of the season in Imola due to the fact he had not yet turned 16 years of age.

In 2015, Isaakyan remained with JD Motorsport to contest full-seasons in both Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 and Formula Renault 2.0 Alps.[13]

GP3 Series

Isaakyan made his debut with Koiranen GP at the Bahrain round of the 2015 season and finished twenty first with two points. The following year, Isaakyan competed with the team full-time and finished seventeenth overall (his highest race result being fourth in the sprint race at Spa-Francorchamps.

Formula V8 3.5

Whilst competing full-time in GP3, Isaakyan debuted in the series with SMP Racing in place of original choice Vladimir Atoev.[14] He claimed his maiden victory in the sport at the first race at Jerez and finished ninth overall.

Formula 2

In 2019, Isaakyan entered the final two rounds of the FIA Formula 2 Championship for Charouz Racing System replacing injured Sauber Junior driver Juan Manuel Correa.[15]
