Sergio Sette Camara, McLaren Test and Development Driver, said:

“It’s my dream to one day become a Formula 1 driver, and I’d like to thank McLaren for giving me this incredible opportunity. My aim is to integrate myself in the team and work as closely with them as possible; to listen, learn and help to develop as a driver, as well as support McLaren.”

Gil de Ferran, Sporting Director, commented:

“We’re delighted to welcome Sergio to McLaren and our Young Driver Program. We’ve been following his progress for some time and believe he is a promising young talent with a real potential.
