Campos Racing faces the second of seven scheduled F1 Academy events for 2024, taking them from Alzira to Florida, United States. The Miami International Autodrome, home to the Miami F1 Grand Prix, will host two new races of the all-female championship, where Campos Racing already demonstrated themselves as one of the most cohesive teams in Jeddah. Spanish racer Nerea Martí, German Carrie Schreiner, and American Chloe Chambers, motivated by the opportunity to compete in front of their home crowd, will again drive the Tatuus single-seaters managed by Campos Racing.

The championship, which kicked off in Jeddah in early March, was characterized by intense competitiveness and equality throughout the weekend. In this regard, all three Campos Racing drivers performed extremely well. Martí, representing Tommy Hilfiger in her Tatuus F4-T-421 Autotecnica, solidified her candidacy for top positions by finishing third in the second race after being taken out by a competitor in the first while also contending for the rostrum. Chambers, bearing the MoneyGram Haas F1 Team livery, secured fourth and tenth positions in Saudi Arabia, and undoubtedly, the American will seek success on her home turf. Lastly, Schreiner, a Sauber Academy driver, also improved throughout the first event of the season and should be another name to watch closely in Miami.

Before this second race, Martí and Chambers hold fifth and sixth positions respectively in the overall standings with 15 and 13 points each. Schreiner is tenth with seven points. In the team standings, Campos Racing sits in third place with 35 points. 

The Miami International Autodrome makes its debut in the F1 Academy calendar in 2024, whereas last season's U.S. visit was at the Circuit of the Americas. The circuit, with a length of 5.412 meters, is built by the Hard Rock Stadium and features nineteen corners and three straights. It is a medium circuit in almost all aspects, from traction and braking to tire wear and aerodynamic load. However, atmospheric peculiarities of the area mean that sunshine can quickly turn into rain, adding extra uncertainty.

Two free practice sessions will be held on Friday at 16:00 and 21:20 respectively. On Saturday, qualifying will start at 16:25, followed by the first race at 20:05. The second race on Sunday will begin at 19:05. All times are in Spanish time zone.

Adrián Campos (Team Principal of Campos Racing): "We approach this second F1 Academy event with great enthusiasm and optimism. Miami will be a completely new circuit for everyone, but thanks to the pre-simulator work we have done and the two free practice sessions on Friday, I believe we will reach 100% of our level for both qualifying and the races. We were already very competitive in Jeddah, but we are not yet satisfied and aim for even better results in Miami. In these weeks, we have not stopped working, and we hope to confirm it with results in the United States." 

Carrie Schreiner (Campos Racing Driver in F1 Academy): "I'm so excited to race in Miami. We had good days in the simulator, and I feel well prepared for this new challenge. I will give it my all to leave America with good results in my pocket."

Chloe Chambers (Campos Racing Driver in F1 Academy): "I’m super excited to be back racing in Miami. I had good results here in 2022, so I feel confident for the week ahead. Of course, it’s a home race for me and Haas, so I'll be aiming to achieve the best results possible in front of the home crowd." 

Nerea Martí (Campos Racing Driver in F1 Academy): "I’m really excited to be in Miami! I really like this track; I drove here a couple of years ago and the results were good! We have prepared well with the team, and we will fight to be at the top."
