New Red Bull recruit Sergio Sette Câmara will sample Formula One machinery for the first time in his career when he performs a series of demo runs at Motorland Aragon this weekend.
The 17-year-old Brazilian was added to the energy drinks giant’s junior roster at the end of last year and is currently competing in his second European Formula 3 campaign with Motopark.
GPUpdate.net reports that Sette Câmara will drive the RB8, which Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber raced to a championship double in 2012, in the season- opening weekend of the Renault Sport Series and Formula V8 3.5.
Red Bull-backed F1 drivers were a regular feature in the World Series by Renault meetings, having often learned the ropes in the French manufacturer’s single-seaters championships on their ascent to the top flight.
Besides Sette Câmara, its 2016 squad includes GP2 Series frontrunner Pierre Gasly, Sette Câmara’s F3 team-mate Niko Kari, and MSA Formula racer Luis Leeds.
