Campos Racing will contest the penultimate round of the 2022 F4 Spain Championship season, which is set to take place at Circuito de Navarra this weekend. Campos Racing has become the dominant force in the series and the goal is to keep the winning streak alive in Los Arcos. The Spanish racing team has secured 13 victories out of 15 races so far and solidly commands both drivers’ and teams’ standings with two rounds remaining in above mentioned Navarra and the season finale in Barcelona next November.  

Campos Racing will be entering no less than six Tatuus T-021 machineries this weekend. Besides Noah Strømsted, who will be making his debut in the F4-based racing series, Mexican Jesse Carrasquedo Jr. is back at the wheel of a Campos Racing-run car replacing Filip Jenić. Carrasquedo Jr’s season came to a halt after the curtain raiser event as a result of an injury and the Mexican talent is now completely recovered for the final two rounds of the season. Strømsted and Carrasquedo Jr. will be teaming up with Nikola Tsolov, Hugh Barter, Georg Kelstrup and Manuel Espírito Santo.  

Tsolov’s season is almost perfect so far. The “Bulgarian Lion” has won 10 races and sits first on 286 points. Besides, Tsolov is also leading the Rookies’ class and he is always a race winner contender. His closest rival is his teammate Barter. Barter has three wins and other five podiums to his name and the Japanese-Australian reduced the point deficit at Motorland Aragon. Depending on the results, Tsolov could be crowned Champion in Navarra or the title could go down to the wire at Barcelona circuit.  

Denmark’s Kelstrup currently lies in fifth place overall thanks to his strong points-paying finishes throughout the season. Kelstrup’s season high was a second place in Jerez and the Danish driver will push to get back on the rostrum this weekend. Espírito Santo has also stepped onto the podium earlier this season with a second and a third place in Valencia before the summer break. The Portuguese driver will fight to complete another remarkable weekend of results in Norther Spain.  

Campos Racing sits first in the teams’ standings on 478 points, 139 points ahead of the 2nd-classified outfit. 

Navarra is a typical “Mickey mouse” circuit and technical from a driver’s point of view. It opened in 2010 and it becomes a classic venue of the F4 Spain Championship both for race events and testing. It features a layout of 3.933km with a short main straight and a long right-left corners sequence, which makes it particularly hard for drivers.  

The timetable has scheduled two 40-minute free practice sessions on Saturday morning with Q1 taking place at 15.55. Race 1, consisting of 25 minutes + 1 lap, is scheduled at 18.10. On Sunday, drivers will hit the track at 09.00 for Q2 with the remaining two races at 11.20 (18 minutes + 1 lap) and 14.30 (25 minutes + 1 lap). All times are CET. Racing action will be broadcasted live on F4 Spain channel on YouTube.  

Adrián Campos (Campos Racing Team Principal): “We are very pleased to have Jesse (Carrasquedo Jr) back with us. We really hope that he is able to translate his huge talent, which Jesse managed to show in preseason testing, into results in the final races of the season. Unfortunately, we won’t have Filip (Jenić) with us this time in Navarra, but we hope to have him making his comeback soon. All the team is delivering strong performance this season, so we expect to continue the same path in Los Arcos.”

Jesse Carrasquedo Jr. (Campos Racing Driver of F4 Spain): “I’m pleased to make my comeback with Campos Racing. I feel fine right now and I’m ready for the F4 Spain challenge. I’m looking forward to giving my 100% and I hope to enjoy the weekend at full. I would to thank all the support that Campos Racing gives me.”
