A long time resident in the United States, Sebastian has been in America since 2006. He drove in various Formula BMW series, before a surprising move to Europe to race in the Austrian and ATS Formel 3 Cups. Moved back to America in 2009 and Indy Lights, before graduating to the Indy 500 in 2010. Since then, Saavedra's been in Indycar on & off - in 2015, he was once again racing on a part-time basis. In 2016, he tried something else completely, competing in a number of the Red Bull Global Rallycross events. In 2017, he returned to Indianapolis to compete in the '500 again, as well as a few drives in Indycars, but in 2018, he moved away from single-seaters and switched to the US Sportscar Series.
