Campos Racing is ready for a new chapter of Formula 3 action as the series hits the half-season mark in the heart of Europe. Budapest, commonly known as the “Queen of the Danube”, hosts the fourth out of seven rounds of the FIA Formula 3 Championship and a new triple header event full of excitement and closely-fought racing battles in the frame of the Hungarian F1 Grand Prix.

The single Spanish-based racing team in the series will field its three-car army for Amaury Cordeel, Lorenzo Colombo and László Töth. The latter will be one of the stars of the event competing in front of his home crowd. Both Belgian Cordeel and Italian Colombo scored their best results of the season in Spielberg earlier this month. Cordeel and Colombo will be pushing even harder to secure their first points at the Hungaroring. Töth will be get an extra morale boost racing at his home round and his goal will also be to achieve the best possible results.

This event usually marks the final round before the summer break and 2021 won’t be an exception. It is not by chance that the circuit is sometimes called “Monaco without walls” due to its quick succession of slow corners with little chances to make overtakes. Tire wear and degradation is low despite traditionally high temperatures, which usually make a huge impact on drivers and cars. As a result of the twisty nature of Hungaroring, engineers need to focus on a high downforce set-up. Just like Monaco, a strong qualifying position makes life much easier coming into the weekend.

Free practice and qualifying sessions will take place on Friday at 10.05 and 13.50 respectively. The first two races will take place on Saturday at 10.35 and 17.55. Sunday will be devoted to weekend’s third and final race at 10.45. All times CET.

Adrián Campos-Suñer Torres (Campos Racing Sporting Director): “We are all working as hard as possible in order to achieve the best results possible, which our drivers and the team itself deserve. We expect that our effort will finally pay off and we will be able to translate into results.”

Amaury Cordeel (FIA Formula 3 driver of Campos Racing): “We race this weekend in Hungary and I’m very impatient to see what we can do on this track. We definitely want to score our first points this weekend. Campos Racing team did a lot of work to be well prepared for this race. I did a lot of simulator work which need to help me during the weekend. Campos Racing team know what to do!”

Lorenzo Colombo (FIA Formula 3 driver of Campos Racing): “Round 4 in Hungary! Ready to drive there, we need to focus on getting a good package for the weekend in order to score important results and get the first points of the season!”

László Tóth (FIA Formula 3 driver of Campos Racing): “Our next stop will be in Hungary, which is my home race, so this will be something special for me this weekend. Really looking forward to be able to drive around the track and keep improving!”
