Sergio Sette Camara to race in GP2 with MP Motorsport in 2017
Red Bull junior Sergio Sette Camara will move up to the GP2 series for the 2017 season with the MP Motorsport team.
The Brazilian driver has been racing in the European Formula 3 championship this year, finishing 11th in the standings and scoring a podium at the Macau Grand Prix.
Following his Toro Rosso F1 drive at the Silverstone in-season test, he will move from F3 to GP2 next year with Dutch outfit MP Motorsport and test for the team in Abu Dhabi.
“I am extremely happy to announce that next year I will be competing in the GP2 series,” he explained.
“It is a very competitive category with sensational cars. The teams are very professional, and all drivers are very fast and talented.
“It is a big step in relation to F3 on a platform where I can learn a lot, I can't wait to sit in the car and start to push.
“I believe this whole experience will assist me in the quest for mileage and the results I expect.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to compete with the team and I hope soon I can get closer to my trajectory towards F1.”
