Best of Brazil: celebrating the country’s greatest racing drivers

The FIA Formula E World Championship is heading back to Brazil soon, after making its debut on the calendar in Season 9. It didn’t take long for the victories to come in: wins in endurance races were swiftly followed by the Brazilian Formula Bee title at the age of 21, in just his second single seater season. Piquet won his first of three F1 world titles in 1981, following this up in 1983 and 1987 – the first Brazilian to achieve the triple. A move to Formula Three Sudamericana followed in 2001, with Piquet Jr. swiftly winning the Championship in 2002. The Brazilian won the first-ever Formula E race, the 2014 Beijing E-Prix, and has gone on to become one of the most successful drivers in the history of the Championship.
