Sette Camara switches to NIO 333 for Formula E Season 9

Sergio Sette Camara will replace Oliver Turvey for Season 9 of Formula E, making the move from Dragon after three seasons with the team.

Sergio Sette Camara has signed with NIO 333 as the Chinese team approaches Formula E‘s Gen3 era hoping to turn a corner after a largely uncompetitive four seasons in the previous generation.

Once tipped for an AlphaTauri F1 seat, Sette Camara switched to Formula E after three seasons in F2 but has been unable to make much of an impression with Dragon, scoring just three points finishes since his debut in 2019.

“I am very happy to join the NIO 333 family,” Sette Camara said. “I want to thank everyone in the team who believed in me for this opportunity. I have been very open about my wish to remain in the Formula E championship, and I am super excited about the new Gen3 car.”

Sette Camara replaces Oliver Turvey at the team, which had a strong debut campaign as China Racing in 2014-15, led by Nelson Piquet Jr.

However, they failed to finish above tenth in the whole of the Gen2 era and though Sette Camara proved he’s got potential in his junior racing career, he’ll need more competitive machinery under him to take advantage of that.

Second seat available

Sette Camara‘s partner is yet to be confirmed, but it’s thought Dan Ticktum is in line for a second season with the team.

“We are delighted to be able to bring Sergio onboard,” Team Principal Alex Hui said. “He is a fantastic talent and we have been hugely impressed by his approach already.

“Securing his services completes another part of the NIO 333 Formula E team jigsaw progressing further up the Formula E grid. We are heading towards Season 9 with a lot of motivation and some very positive momentum.”
