It was Christmas 1993 when, somewhat at a loss what to get Sébastien for Christmas, his father bought him his first kart. The next day, he drove it for the first time in the car park of the family garage business. After that came the first proper training sessions, the first races, the first wins, the first Swiss championship titles, then came the European title. In 2004, he made his single-seater debut in Formula BMW, finishing second behind Sebastian Vettel. That performance was spotted by a Red Bull talent scout who was there that day: impressed by the youngster, the drinks company signed him up and set him up on the nursery slopes of a racing career.
In 2005, Sébastien was German Formula BMW series’ vice-champion and was runner up in Formula 3 in 2007. He then moved up to GP2, taking two wins, one of which came having started from 21st on the grid on a damp track. He was picked by Toro Rosso to make his Formula 1 debut and drove for them from 2009 to 2011. He took part in 55 Grands Prix, scoring 29 points. He even finished his first ever Grand Prix in Melbourne in the points, with his best F1 results being two seventh places. Since 2012, he’s been the Infiniti Red Bull Racing reserve driver and attends all the Grands Prix with the team. He is also part of the Toyota driver line-up in WEC, the World Endurance Championship. In 2014, the season started on a high with two victories in a row at Silverstone and Spa. At the Le Mans 24 Hours, after a crash in the early hours which puts the car 12 laps behind the leaders, Sébastien and his team-mates climb the positions back to finish on the podium’s third position.
After two more victories, in the Mount Fuji and Shanghai circuits, Sébastien and his team-mane Anthony Davidson won the endurance world title, one race to the end of the season.
On top of all this, Sébastien started the brand new Formula E championship with the eDams Renault team. He wins the Punta del Este round in December 2014 before winning the Monaco ePrix, in May 2015.
