Despite initially planning a part-time Indycar schedule, Red Bull Formula 1 reserve driver Sergio Sette Camara will race in this year’s Super Formula series, replacing Pietro Fittipaldi at B-MAX Racing with Motopark.
Fittipaldi dropped out of the line-up due to what Motopark described as “a late reshuffle of race seats due to conflicting sponsors’ interests”. Sette Camara joins fellow Super Formula rookie and TRS graduate Charles Milesi at the team.
“I am confident this is the best direction for my career,” said Sette Camara.
“Super Formula are the quickest racing cars after Formula 1, and the teams here are working at the highest level.
“I want to thank B-Max with Motopark for this opportunity – I have worked with them before and I am sure we can achieve great things in this series too.”
Sette Camara had previously driven with Motopark in European Formula 3 throughout 2015 and 2016.
Motopark boss Timo Rumpfkeil added: “I’m delighted to welcome Sergio back to our team.
“He needs no introduction: he’s one of the most exciting talents out there and it’s always a great pleasure to work with such a quality driver.
“There is a strong history between Team Motopark and Sergio – we gave him his first two seasons in Europe back in 2015 and 2016 in Formula 3 and again in Macau 2017, so it very much feels like he’s coming home.
“It will work out a clear advantage that we know him very well and vice versa, as this is going to allow us to start on a high level right from go.”
Sette Camara had recently competed in Formula 2 with DAMS, finishing fourth in championship.
