Brazilian single-seater hotshot Sergio Sette Camara joins Geox Dragon for the 2019/20 season finale, stepping up to the role after an impressive performance in the Marrakesh Rookie Test.
Born in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, Sergio Sette Camara rose through the karting ranks in his home country before stepping up to race in Formula 3, first in Brazil before making the journey across the Atlantic to race in Europe in 2014.
Sette Camara is no stranger to the trials of city street circuits. The Brazilian driver made his debut at the gruelling Macau Grand Prix in 2015, his first attempt saw him finish down in 22nd, but demonstrated his potential by smashing the lap record by an impressive 1.5 seconds. In his next two appearances, his best finish was third in 2016.
2016 also saw Sette Camara join the ranks of the Red Bull Junior Team, as the Brazilian driver continued to flourish in his ascension up the single-seater racing ladder as he climbed up to the FIA Formula 2 Championship.
In his rookie season in Formula 2, Sette Camara ended 2017 in 12th and scored his first win alongside two podiums. The following year he continued his improvement with eight podium finishes on the way to sixth in the standings.
Last season saw his best overall finish in Formula 2, claiming two wins, three poles and eight podiums to end the 2019 season in fourth.
Alongside his role for the all-American Geox Dragon outfit, Sette Camara is the Red Bull Racing and AlphaTauri’s reserve driver for the 2020 Formula 1 season.
Before making his debut in the six-race finale of the 2019/20 ABB FIA Formula E Championship, Sette Camara represented Dragon in the 2020 Marrakesh Rookie Test, ending the session with the second-fastest time.
The Brazilian will be looking to continue these feats when he makes his all-electric racing graduation in Berlin.
