Former F1 driver and triple world champion Nelson Piquet launched Tuesday, in Brasília, his new F3 Team.

Nelson Angelo Piquet, son of the former F1 and Indy500 driver, will be at the wheel of the #33 car, while the #32 is reserved for an eventual return of Piquet senior.

Piquet Sports will have Felipe Vargas as director and will have Autotrac, CEB and Qualcomm as main sponsors.

Nelson will make his debut at the race on August 5th, in Brasília, as he has to be 16 years old to race in this series.

"My plans are doing two years in South-America, two or three years in British F3 and then go to F1" said the young driver, planning his future like many other drivers. The main difference is he has a special manager, Nelson Piquet.
