Caio begins a second season with the Renault Sport Academy aiming to build on a strong debut season racing in the Formula Renault Eurocup where he finished fifth in the overall standings and best rookie. This year, Caio aims to win the title as he remains with R-ace GP.
Caio joined the Academy ahead of the 2019 season as part of his prize for winning the 2018 French F4 Championship. Born in São Paulo, Caio began his racing career as a karter in Brazil in 2009, moving to Europe in 2015 where he was crowned CIK-FIA Rookie of the Year.
His first opportunity in single-seaters was in January 2018 in the Formula 4 UAE Championship before his successful run to the French F4 title.
In 2019, Caio drove the Renault-powered E20 Formula 1 car on the streets of his hometown as part of the Senna Tribute Formula 1 Festival.
