Campos Racing and its driver line-up in the post-season FIA F3 testing consisting of Mari Boya, Olivier Goethe and Sebas Montoya performed pretty well at Circuito de Jerez. The two-day test proved to be very promising with all the three drivers lapping in competitive lap times. As usual, Campos Racing focused on qualifying simulations on new tires in the first session and then completed long runs in the afternoon with excellent average pace.

On Thursday, Goethe commanded the timesheets for Campos Racing with a lap time of 1m30.814s in the morning session, which he set in the closing moments and was one and half tenth quicker than his closest rivals. Besides, he was also the first driver to break the 1m31s barrier. Boya was 3rd-fastest with a lap time of 1m31.125s with Montoya putting together a lap of 1m31.889s. In the afternoon, Goethe and Boya finished in the top-5 once again with lap time of 1m31.777s and 1m31.817s respectively. Montoya posted the 7th-fastest lap with of 1m32.086s.  

Friday also worked pretty well for Campos Racing drivers. In the morning session, Boya was the fastest man in Campos Racing colors by posting a lap of 1m29.950s and took 3rd in the timesheets. Goethe rounded out the top five with a lap time of 1m30.280s. Montoya’s best effort produced a lap time of 1m30.786s. The second in the afternoon was slower due to hot temperatures and drivers made long stints instead.

The FIA Formula 3 testing will continue at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on 10-11 October.
