Campos Racing is ready for another thrilling FIA Formula 3 Championship round as the closely-fought feeder series has scheduled its third event of the 2021 season at the Red Bull Ring, which will take place in the frame of the F1 Austrian Grand Prix.

The Spanish-based racing team will enter its three Dallara-built F3 cars for Hungarian László Tóth, who will be returning to drive the #20 car after being forced to miss the French venue as a result of testing positive for coronavirus, Italian Lorenzo Colombo and Belgian Amaury Cordeel. Campos Racing outlines its ambitions for the Austrian Grand Prix and they will remain the same, which are to fight for points-paying positions throughout the weekend. The three series newcomers expect to perform well during the Austria’s triple-header and bring positive results home.

The Red Bull Ring was founded as Österreichring and played home to the Austrian Grand Prix since the early seventies. Later in the nineties the Spielberg-based circuit was renamed A1-Ring and was almost demolished until Red Bull’s Dietrich Mateschitz bought it to be rebuilt. In the heart of the Styrian Mountains, the circuit features part of its old ultra-fast nature but its current 4.3-kilometer layout is a problem in qualifying due to traffic, and drivers often struggle to find a clean flying lap. Besides, times are usually close and a couple of tenths make a big difference between starting up the front or just in the middle of the pack. As the Red Bull Ring is a clockwise circuit, it features a bigger number of right-handers but the most challenging ones are left-handers.

Free practice and qualifying sessions will take place on Friday at 09.30 and 13.50 respectively. The first two races will take place on Saturday at 10.35 and 17.30. Sunday will be devoted to weekend’s third and final race at 10.15. All times CET.
