Our in-depth look at the young stars of the new generation continues with Brazilian Matheus Ferreira!

Brazilian karting continues to churn out young talent year after year. In recent times we have seen a great Gabriel Bortoleto gaining victories and successes in F4 and moving up to the F3 category just this year. A path that has recently rewarded also the face of Birel Art, Matheus Morgatto or Rafael Camara, the protagonist of the OK season.

In the Junior category, on the other hand, another young green-gold talent seems to be making his way, Matheus Ferreira, who came third in the last race held at La Conca. Good speed shown and above all the spirit of adaptation that the Brazilian has applied to European karting, which he himself defines as fundamental for a career at the highest level.

Matheus, how is your season going? 
«It was very positive, I got 2 podiums in a row and I think there is the regularity to win titles, I am very satisfied». 

What do you want to improve for the next races?
«I always arrive a few days before the start of the season so I don't do any training, the aim is to get more and more feeling with the kart and have a good performance.  For the next races we will try to improve our general preparation to be even more competitive».

How do you feel about racing in Europe?  We know it's very different from Brazil
«The races in Europe are always at a high level with many drivers and I consider them a strong preparation for a promising future in motorsport!»

What is your favourite track at the moment and why? 
«I really like La Conca track from the first time I tried it. I have adapted very well to it, it is my favourite for now. I think it's a different track, it has much more grip than any other track and it's challenging for any driver».
