Campos Racing will contest the seventh and final round of the 2023 F4 Spain Championship season this weekend at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. It’s expected to be another closely fought weekend with excellent prospects for the Valencia-based racing team as their drivers are still in contention for top honors. Campos Racing will enter their Tatuus-built machinery for Christian Ho, Enzo Deligny, Matteo De Palo, Noah Strømsted, Andrés Cárdenas and Jesse Carrasquedo Jr.

Singaporean Ho currently sits second in the standings on 216 points two wins and eight podiums to his name. Ho has also proved to be a solid points-paying scorer and will set his sights on adding more rostrums to his tally. Frenchman Deligny is fourth and the best rookie driver classified as the series newcomer has secured two triumphs and other seven podium finishes in his first year of single-seater racing.

Italian De Palo is another rookie contender as he is second behind teammate Deligny and fifth in the overall standings. De Palo has also enjoyed winning form earlier this season and made his way back onto the podium a few weeks ago in Cheste. Besides, he has scored points in all but two races. Strømsted is seventh in the standings with three podium finishes, including a second place in Los Arcos as his season’s high. Peruvian Cárdenas rounds out the top-3 of the rookies’ classification, which is sealed by Campos Racing drivers. Cárdenas brought his maiden win home in Jerez and has put himself in contention for top-5 results in almost every race. Mexican Carrasquedo Jr. will be pushing hard to take his best results of the season in Barcelona.

Last but not least, Campos Racing currently tops the teams’ standings on 405 points and the goal is to claim the title once again this weekend.

Barcelona is probably the first circuit on the calendar in terms of knowledge for any driver, as there are always plenty of tests taking place on it. The asphalt provides medium grip but at the same time is quite abrasive and the drivers must have one eye on tire wear and degradation. For this year onwards, the last chicane has been removed and the last two right-handers are almost flat-out instead.

The timetable has scheduled two 40-minute free practice sessions on Saturday morning with Q1 taking place at 13:35. Race 1, consisting of 30 minutes + 1 lap, is scheduled at 15:35. On Sunday, drivers will hit the track at 09:00 for Q2 with the remaining two races at 11:05 (25 minutes + 1 lap) and 13:45 (30 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 arrived in Barcelona with plenty of motivation. It has been a very successful season with several drivers of our line-up claiming wins and we would like to bring the curtain down on the season on a high note. Everybody perfectly knows Barcelona and gaps are expected to be very narrow with a couple of tenths making a huge difference.”

Enzo Deligny (Campos Racing Driver of F4 Spain): "I am proud of my first year in single seater and I am looking forward to give everything in the last race of the season.”
