Felipe Nasr Biography


Felipe Nasr in his car

Felipe Nasr looks at data during winter testing in 2015.

Felipe Nasr's name may take some getting used to, as it sounds so much like his compatriot Felipe Massa, but his debut season hinted that he could around for a while.

Nasr is the latest in a long line of Brazilians to enter F1, and if he is as good as the hype around him suggests then expect him to be here for some time.

Furthermore, it is rare that Williams hire bad drivers, so it is in recognition of Nasr’s talent that they signed him to be their reserve driver in 2014.

He also raced in F1 feeder series GP2 that season, and he won four races on his way to a third placed finish in the championship. Those wins, his first in any form of racing since 2011, were imperative to proving to Sauber he is up to the task in F1.

Nasr moved to single seaters in 2009, and gained immediate success with two poles and win in his opening two races in Formula BMW. Four more wins followed as he won the championship.

In 2011 he moved to British Formula Three, where he piped future F1 driver Kevin Magnussen to the title before he moved to GP2.

Nasr showed consistency throughout his GP2 career, and he will need to replicate that in order to impress with Sauber.

As per usual, the car the Swiss team produced was solid. It started promisingly, with points in Australia, China and Monaco, but other teams quickly moved past.

the 2016 season brought more of the same, so the pressure was on Nasr to show he deserved more. But The financial situation of Sauber wasn't in favour of Nasr. The pace of the Sauber C36 was poor and Nasr wasn't able to show his speed. Except for his home grand prix in Brazil. In the extreme wet conditions he scored 2 very valuable points for Sauber.
