Felipe Nasr began karting in Brazil aged seven years old. An impressive start to his career saw him move to Europe in 2009, claiming the Formula BMW championship by a massive 104 points over team-mate Daniel Juncadella.
A switch to Formula Three followed and an impressive rookie campaign saw him finish fifth. He switched to Carlin Motorsport in 2011 and immediately enjoyed success, beating team-mate Kevin Magnussen to the championship.
He moved to GP2 in 2012, signing with DAMS. The championship success he had enjoyed earlier in his career failed to materialise in the F1 feeder series and he did not claim a win in his first two seasons, though six podiums saw him finish fourth in 2013.
The following year was crucial in Nasr's journey to Formula One. At the start of the year he was confirmed as Williams' reserve driver - which would lead to his first taste of F1 in several Friday sessions. He finally broke his GP2 duck in Spain and went on to claim three more victories, though he was not consistent enough to challenge Jolyon Palmer for the title. At the final race of the season he was beaten to second in the championship by Stoffel Vandoorne.
Nasr is well backed by Brazilian sponsors and that helped him secure a full-time drive at Sauber for 2015, where he will partner Marcus Ericsson.
Strengths and weaknesses
Nasr shows a lot of pace, especially over one lap, but his two years without a victory in GP2 hint at a lack of consistency which could hurt his debut season in Formula One.
Nasr has chosen the number 12 to accompany him throughout his Formula One career.
