Antonio Felix da Costa again with A1GP Team Portugal at South Africa

After an impressive performance at New Zealand driving the Portuguese A1GP car, where Antonio Felix da Costa was the best debutant on the session reserved to the rookie drivers, the 17 year old driver wants to continue helping the national team on South Africa next weekend.

The Kyalami circuit is totally unkown for the Portuguese driver, so the main aim on the rookie sessions is to help to find the best solutions on the set-up of the Portuguese car: "It seems to be a very demanding circuit, so I have been focused on my physical preparation in order to help as much as I can Filipe and the team. Now that I already now the car, I hope I can make better use of the tyres and do a even better job than Taupo", said the Formula Renault 2.0 race winner.

A1 Team Portugal is 3rd overall at the moment on the competitive championship A1GP; being Filipe Albuquerque responsible to continue the good results achieved this year. Antonio Felix da Costa will drive the A1GP Powered by Ferrari car on the two rookie sessions. This will be the second experience of the 2008 Formula Renault 2.0 North European Vice Champion on the World Cup of Nations A1GP.

The 2 rookie sessions will take place on Friday (20th February).
