In 2017, he was again Champion. He rode his 200th winner of the year at Lingfield on 18 October, and with 155 wins in the Championship period, he effectively won the title with weeks to spare. He identified the highlights of his year as the day he rode six winners - five at Sandown and one at Goodwood - and his Cesarewitch Handicap win on Withhold.


For the 2016 flat season, he was signed by Betway as brand ambassador, and finished second in the jockeys' championship to Jim Crowley.


He bounced back from losing the job, by winning the British flat racing Champion Jockey's title in 2015.


He was again runner-up (to Richard Hughes) in 2012, and third in 2013, again behind Hughes.


With support from the Mark Johnston yard, de Sousa made a good start in 2011. After initially being excluded from some bookmakers’ lists for the flat-jockeys’ championship, with monthly totals of 24, 20 and 27 winners in May, June and July respectively he was heading the title race. His association with Johnston led to big wins at Epsom Racecourse on Derby Day and twice at Royal Ascot; his first wins at the Royal meeting came on Fox Hunt in the Duke of Edinburgh Stakes and Namibian in the Queen's Vase. De Sousa described his Ascot victories as "unbelievable", saying “when you look at my background, you would never think I would ride a winner in Royal Ascot”.

Despite failing (by four winners) to pass Hanagan in the title race, 2011 was de Sousa’s best-ever season. He finished with 161 winners. While Hanagan suggested he may not try for a third successive title, de Sousa had no such qualms. “I don’t have to waste. I wake up every morning, eight stone. Of course, I get tired at the end of the day but after sleeping, you’re fresh again.”


The 2010 champion jockey Paul Hanagan regained the lead by September; having incurred a four-day suspension in early October, de Sousa’s chances of a first title were fading. He continued to focus on his championship challenge with 32 winners in October; however, Mark Johnston's decision to put de Sousa on Fox Hunt in Australia's Melbourne Cup was another blow to his title bid. Explaining the logic behind his decision to send de Sousa to Melbourne to ride the Duke Of Edinburgh winner, Johnston said “He (de Sousa) would rather win four races at Wolverhampton and be called champion jockey than have to come out here. But I hope that if he wins the Melbourne Cup then he’ll realize that’s much bigger than being champion jockey”. Fox Hunt finished seventh in the Cup.


With Nicholls using his son Adrian as first jockey and de Sousa getting many outside rides, de Sousa decided to freelance. He continued to ride winners; after winning 21, 35 and 68 races in 2007, 2008 and 2009 respectively, he reached his maiden century of winners in 2010 and attracted the attention of northern trainer Mark Johnston. In a 2011 BBC interview Johnston said, “I noticed him last season when he rode 100 winners for mainly small trainers, often on horses at long odds”.


Silvestre de Sousa (born 31 December 1980 in São Francisco do Maranhão, Brazil) is a Brazilian flat racing jockey based in Britain. He was champion jockey of Britain in 2015, with 132 winners, and again in 2017 and 2018.
