Guilherme Samaia (born 2 October 1996 in São Paulo, Brazil) is a Brazilian racing driver, who competes for Campos Racing in the 2020 FIA Formula 2 Championship.[1] A multiple single-seater Champion in his native Brazil, Samaia entered F2 after impressing both Campos and his sponsors at the 2019 Yas Marina Test.[1][2]

Background

Samaia opened his career in karting at the age of fifteen, competing in the Florida Winter Tour alongside Juan Manuel Correa.[3] After just a two seasons in karts, however, Samaia would get his first seat in single seaters, getting a run-out in the Fórmula Junior Brazil at the end of 2013.[3] The Brazilian duly returned to karting for 2014, Samaia got his first full season of single-seater racing in 2015, obtaining an entry in the Formula 3 Brazil Light Series.[3]

European Endeavours

Samaia won the Brazil Light Championship in 2015, graduating to Formula 3 Brasil the following season.[3] Second in that Championship showed Samaia's potential, with the Brazilian youth duly dominating the following season to claim the Brazilian F3 Championship in 2017.[3] With that Samaia set his sights on Europe, gaining a seat in the BRDC British Formula 3 for the rest of the season, finishing thirteenth.[3]

Samaia would also compete in the Spanish Formula 3 Championship and the Euroformula Open Championship in 2017, although he was only able to compete in handful of races.[3] Regardless, he returned to both series in 2018, claiming sixth in Euroformula and fifth in Spanish F3, earning him a third Euroformula season in 2019.[3] However, after signing a deal to compete for a full season, Samaia would drop out of the Championship mid-season.[3]
