The young Brazilian Driver who is fighting for F4 Championships in Europe.
Felipe is racing in both the German ADAC and Italian CSAI F4 Championships. In both series he is among the most successful drivers competing. Two weekends ago at the Oschersleben circuit (Germany), the young STILO driver took his 4th win of the season and marked himself as a contender for the ADAC F4 championship. He is having a great season in F4, he has also won in the Italian F4 Championship and is fighting for the German title, we asked Felipe if he is satisfied with his championship thus far?
“The season has gone very well up to this point, we have had some ups and downs but overall I can be pleased with the series up to now. Yes, I am satisfied also because I have most wins and fastest laps!” What is your best race of the season so far? “All the races that I have won have of course been great, but for a driver the first win is always unforgettable! It happened in the MRF challenge in Dubai last November (2016). I had a perfect race for the whole race, without being passed and making no mistakes.”
You have planned your career well up to this day. How are you preparing for the future? Which category do you think you will race in 2018?
“We are still unsure of what I will do next year, my plan is to do F3 but this depends on so many things. We have to wait.”
How did the colors of your helmet come about, on your Stilo ST5?
“The colors of my helmet were born from my family’s business and also from the cars my uncles used to race. The design I did from the beginning of my go kart career and is based on the colors of my family.”
