Felipe was born in Maringá, Brazil, on 23rd of May 2000.
He is a professional racing driver and his goal is to become a Formula 1 driver.
The Drugovich family has always been involved in motor racing and, from there, Felipe's passion for motor sport arises. He currently lives in Italy, which is more convenient for travelling and racing throughout Europe.
Felipe started his career in go-karts when he was 8 years old (2008) and kept racing in Brazil until he was 13 (2013). In 2013 hewent to Europe to race in the go-kart category, and drove for well-known teams such as ART Grand Prix and Kosmic Racing, where he achievedgreat results in the most important international championships.
He debuted in race cars in the ADAC Formula 4 championship in 2016. He also disputed the MRF Challenge 2016/17 in the Middle East, winning a race in Dubai.
In 2017 Felipe really proved himself, finishing third in the ADAC Formula 4 championship as a driver for Van Amersfoort Racing(VAR). He had a brilliant season, winning seven races and being the driver with the most victories. He also competed in two Formula 3 races: the last round of the FIA F3 in Hockenheim and the last round of the Euroformula Open in Barcelona, in which he debuted with pole position and a victory.
The year of 2018 could not have been better. Drugovich was the champion of the 2017/18 MRF Challenge with a brilliant performance: tenvictories in the competition. Still in the same year, in the Euroformula F3 Open he joined the RP Motorsport team, where he notonly won the championship, but also broke the existing record, with 14 victories out of 16 races and two second places.
In 2019, Drugovich raced in the FIA Formula 3 championship. The year was beset by many problems with the setup of and adjustments to the car, making it very difficult for Felipe to continue producing outstanding results. Even so, he still achieved the highest score in the Carlin Buzz Racing team.
Currently the Brazilian driver is competing in the FIA Formula 2 championship for the Dutch team MP Motorsport and isachieving surprising results in his debut year. At Spielberg, he became the first driver to win in his Formula 2 debut round since 2017, when Charles Leclerc (Ferrari's current Formula 1 driver) won in Bahrain. In the same month, Felipe earned his first pole position in the category, at Silverstone.
