“I was laughing; I couldn’t stop laughing…”

He began 2012 without a regular drive; then Trevor Carlin offered him a GP3 seat. He quickly showed his talent and speed – and was rewarded in May with a Red Bull Junior Team contract. Instantly competitive in the much bigger and faster World Series by Renault cars, Portugal’s Antonio Felix da Costa nonethless continues to race GP3 with Carlin. In Hungary, on July 28/29, he made history by winning GP3 on both Saturday and Sunday. I spoke to Antonio prior to the Silverstone WSR race on August 25/26.


Slick Finish

Will Buller and Conor Daly finished one-two in Sunday’s British GP GP3 support race – but only after starting on slicks.  In the wet.  Here, Conor talks about that decision – and about his straight-line test on Thursday for Sahara Force India

He’s shown his pace in F Renault, F3, GP3, GP2 – and even in F1, at the Young Driver test in Abu Dhabi.  Portugal’s (very talented) Antonio Felix da Costa talks about his 2011 GP3 season with Status; the ongoing difficulties of raising a decent budget; and his plans for 2012

We talk to him about that – and about his recent ascent of Mt Kilimanjaro, a climb that enabled him to raise £8,000 for the Henry Surtees Foundation.
