Jesse Carrasquedo Jr. will miss the second appointment of the 2022 Formula 4 Spain Championship, which is scheduled this weekend at Circuito de Jerez, as a result of an injury. Mexican Carrasquedo Jr., who made a promising debut in the Formula 4-based racing series in Portimão, will be replaced by Charlie Wurz. The Austrian will temporarily join Hugh Barter, Nikola Tsolov, Filip Jenić and Georg Kelstrup in Southern Spain at the wheel of one of Campos Racing-run Tatuus T-021 car. 

Wurz, the son of former F1 driver and two-time Le Mans winner Alex Wurz, stepped up to single-seater racing earlier this year following a brilliant career in go-karts. The young Austrian ace claimed F4 United Arab Emirates Championship title with an impressive record of ten podium finishes, including two wins.

Adrián Campos (Campos Racing Team Principal): “We are pleased to have Charlie (Wurz) joining us this weekend. It’s such a shame that Jesse (Carrasquedo Jr) won’t be able to take part in the second round of the series. But we really think that Charli, after carrying out two test days in Valencia in which he showed his potential, will be able to deliver a strong performance in Jerez and we will continue with our five cars up the front.”

Charlie Wurz (Campos Racing driver of F4 Spain): “I’m very happy to be racing with Campos Racing this weekend in Jerez. We’ve done two test days together, so I’m ready for the challenge. Besides, I’m wishing Jesse (Carrasquedo Jr.) a prompt recovery.”
