Sette Câmara to replace Brendon Hartley at GEOX Dragon for FE Berlin races

The test and reserve driver at the GEOX Dragon Formula E team, Sérgio Sette Câmara, will replace Brendon Hartley for the final races of Season 6 in Berlin.

Following the recent departure of two-time WEC champion and former Toro Rosso F1 star Brendon Hartley, Sette Câmara will take his seat in the remaining six races of the Season 6 calendar that will take place at Tempelhof Airport in Berlin (in three established configurations).

The young Brazilian made an impressive debut in the PENSKE EV-4 at the Marrakech Rookie Test earlier this year, achieving a second-placed finish following his day at the Circuit International Automobile Moulay el Hassan.

Jay Penske, the Owner and Team Principal of GEOX Dragon & Penske Autosport said: “I have been very impressed with Sérgio on track in Marrakesh, and in his work in the simulator with our engineers to continue to push the development of the PENSKE EV-4 package.

“I look forward to seeing him on track in Berlin, and I fully expect him to challenge for points in his first races with the team,” joining Audi factory driver Nico Müller as they both set to take on Berlin for the first time.

Sette Câmara said: “The team and I had really strong chemistry in the Marrakech Rookie Test.

“We executed the program, and performed well, finishing the day P2.

“I am delighted to share the news that I will work with them again, this time in a race situation, which makes it even more special.

“I want to thank Jay Penske and every member of Geox Dragon Racing for giving me this opportunity.”

In his place, Joel Eriksson will be on standby as GEOX Dragon’s Reserve Driver for the final races of the Formula E season.
