Born on August 31 1991 in Lisbon, António Félix da Costa made his entry into the Portuguese Karting Cup at the mere age of nine. Though the opposition dwarfed him in both age and experience, he quickly established himself and won many titles both inside Portugal and abroad.
By 2007, not only was he competing at the very highest international karting level but he also made the jump to a single seater, signing with the German team Motopark Academy and becoming the youngest Portuguese driver ever to compete in Formula Renault 2.0.
2010 saw a step up to the F3 Euro Series. António scored three victories, gained the Best Rookie title and was 6th in the Macau Grand Prix at the end of the season.
António moved on to GP3 in 2011, gaining more experience and driving for the Status Grand Prix team. He joined the Red Bull Junior Team in 2012 and added the Renault 3.5 series to his calendar, immediately scoring points at the Nürburgring.
After a superb 2012, António has since carried on in a similar vein, by taking first place in Race 2 at the Formula Renault 3.5 in Monza, Italy. António is currently living in Milton Keynes, England, near to the Red Bull F1 team and Arden Caterham so that he can snap up a chance at F1 as soon as it comes along!Read more
