Sérgio Sette Câmara Filho (born 23 May 1998 in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais) is a Brazilian racing driver, who competes for the Dragon/Penske Autosport team in the 2021/22 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.[1] A former Red Bull Junior Team member and McLaren Formula One test driver, Sette Câmara's primary racing experience was established in the FIA Formula 2 Championship.[1]

Sette Câmara first joined the FE Championship as a test driver, joining Dragon for the 2020 Rookie Test, before being drafted into their squad ahead of the 2019/20 season finale in Berlin.[2] Replacing Brendon Hartley, Sette Câmara would impress with several Super Pole appearances, although he failed to score.[3]

That end-of-season cameo earned Sette Câmara a full-season seat with Dragon for the 2020/21 season, with the Brazilian racer partnering Nico Müller for the season.[4] A turbulent season saw Sette Câmara again impress over one lap, and score a fourth place finish in the second race, before slipping to 22nd in the Championship.[5]

Regardless, Dragon would retain Sette Câmara for a third successive season in 2021/22, with the Brazilian racer partnered by Antonio Giovinazzi.[6]

Background

After a youth spent racing go-karts, Câmara made the move to the Brazilian Formula Three Championship at the age of 16, the minimum legal age in Brazil that a person could race a car. He duly joined the series mid-season, partnering Pedro Piquet who would duly go on to win the series. Yet, Câmara would put in a respectable performance, while also making a maiden appearance in the European Formula 3 Championship.

European Dream

For 2015 Câmara would make the move to Europe full time, getting a full season seat with Motopark in the European F3 Championship, as well as a seat in the Toyota Racing Series in New Zealand. Again, although Câmara was fated not to have a spectacular season, a couple of podium finishes in F3 earned the Brazilian racer a seat in the Macau Grand Prix at the end of the season. Unfortunately Câmara would, as ever, flatter to deceive, setting a new lap record at Macau en-route to 22nd in the race.

Regardless, Câmara would return with Motopark to the European F3 Championship in 2016, having also gained a spot in the Red Bull Junior Team.[7] However, while the Brazilian enjoyed a strong start to the season, and demonstrated significant one-lap pace, his results tailed off after the halfway point in the season. Indeed, even a podium finish at the 2016 Macau Grand Prix, finishing just behind António Félix da Costa and Felix Rosenqvist, would not be enough for Red Bull to maintain their interest in Câmara, although he did secure enough funding from elsewhere to move into Formula Two for 2017.[8]

Learning Experiences

Câmara would take time to get up to speed in F2, waiting until the second half of the season to claim his maiden points finish, before picking up a maiden win in Belgium.[9] Indeed, a strong run towards the end of the season would net Câmara twelfth in the Championship, and a move to the title pretending Carlin team alongside Lando Norris.[10] The Brazilian duly challenged for the title early on but failed to pick-up a win, meaning he finished sixth in the series.[11]

The 2019 season saw Câmara moved to the DAMS team for the season, partner Nicholas Latifi for another bid to secure the F2 crown.[12] The Brazilian duly improved to fourth in the series and secured two more wins, leading to a partial move away from F2 for 2020, with Câmara signing a seat-sharing deal with Carlin in IndyCar Series.[13]

Formula E History

Sette Câmara appeared as an outside shot for an ABB FIA Formula E Championship test seat during the 2019/20 season, after the planned 2020 Rookie Test was formally announced.[14] He duly signed a deal to become a test/reserve driver for GEOX DRAGON alongside Joel Eriksson, and would get his first day in the Penske EV-4 at the aforementioned Rookie Test, setting the second fastest time.[1] That result put Sette Câmara in prime position to take over the #6 seat ahead of the re-arranged season finale in Berlin, after Brendon Hartley left the team.[2]

Cameo Câmara: 2019/20

Sette Câmara made his debut in the first race at Berlin, with the Brazilian racer qualifying at the back of the field, before being disqualified for exceeding the maximum energy allowed.[15]

Dragon Dance: 2020/21

Dragon Racing retained Sette Câmara's services for the 2020/21 season as FE became a World Championship, although both he and teammate Nico Müller would have to battle with year-old equipment in the early part of the season.[4]

Team Leader: 2021/22

For 2021/22 Sette Câmara was picked to lead the Dragon/Penske team, as they signed FE rookie Antonio Giovinazzi to fill their second seat.[6]
