Peter Windsor speaks to Antonio Felix da Costa in the build-up to the Silverstone WSR race on August 25/26.
He began 2012 without a regular drive; then Trevor Carlin, the prodigiously successful British team-owner, 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.
