Sergio Sette Camara steps across to NIO 333 for Season 9, looking to marry his blistering one-lap pace with more consistency as the team-driver pairing aim for positive progress towards success in Gen3.

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. From 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.

Sette Camara's best overall finish in F2 came in 2019, where the Brazilian claimed two wins, three poles and eight podiums to end the season in fourth. He combined his efforts in the junior Formula category with a role as McLaren's F1 test and development driver.

For 2020, he made appearances across the single-seater spectrum; racing in Japan in Super Formula, acting as the test driver for Red Bull Racing and AlphaTauri and making his debut in Formula E for Dragon in the 2020 Berlin season-finale.

Before his drive in the six-race finale in the 2019/20 season, Sette Camara represented Dragon in the 2020 Marrakesh Rookie Test, ending the session with the second-fastest time.

Following his graduation to a race seat for the Berlin season-finale, Sette Camara was rewarded with a full-time drive with Dragon, where he stayed for the next two seasons. With a best of fourth from two campaigns with the American outfit, Sette Camara's one-lap pace was noted by the whole paddock with the field honouring him as the most underrated driver.

Sette Camara's blazing speed has been picked up by NIO 333 for Season 9, as the former winning squad are charting a route back to the top step in the Gen3 era.
