Born in 1992 in Brazil’s capital city of Brazillia, Felipe Nasr began karting when he was just seven years old. Between 2000 and 2007, he built a reputation by winning several championship titles in Brazil. Two years after making his open-wheel debut, Nasr moved into the British Formula 3 Championship with Raikkonen Robertson Racing, where he finished the season in fifth. In 2011 Nasr signed with Carlin Motorsport for the that year’s Championship, in which he claimed the British Formula 3 title, 123 points ahead of his teammate. Between 2012 and 2014, the Brazilian driver competed in the GP2 Series, initially with DAMS before rejoining Carlin for the final two seasons, achieving a best place finish of third in 2014. In early 2014, it was confirmed that Nasr would be joining Williams as the team’s reserve driver, participating in three tests and five free practice sessions. That same year, Nasr signed as a full-time driver for Sauber’s 2015 campaign, where he finished fifth in his first race in Australia, thigh highest place finish ever achieved by a Brazilian on debut. Nasr scored 29 points in his two seasons of Formula 1, before moving to the North American IMSA Championship where he won the Team and Drivers’ Championship in his first season.
Maximilian “Max” Günther has been promoted to the role of GEOX DRAGON racing driver following a year as the team’s Test and Reserve Driver. During this time, he logged miles on the track and on the simulator to help develop and refine the Penske EV-3 powertrain package. A win at the Noisring in his 2015 rookie campaign foreshadowed his formidable talent, which would earn him four victories and a runner-up finish in the Drivers’ Championship in the 2016 season, and a third-place finish in the 2017 FIA Formula 3 European Drivers’ Championship. At just 20 years of age, Max shows tremendous potential as a racing driver. During the Season 4 ABB FIA Formula E rookie test, he demonstrated his capabilities with an electric powertrain, driving the Penske EV-2 towards the top of the timesheets in each testing session. In addition to his Reserve Driver duties with GEOX DRAGON, Max will also contest the FIA Formula 2 Championship with Arden International.
