FIA F3 started in 2010 as a stage below FIA F2. In the FIA F3, every car uses the same chassis, the same engine and the same tires. Therefore, it really depends on the driving performance of the drivers and the ability of the team to get the most out of the car. Many FIA F1 drivers had their professional start in the FIA F3.

Alex has been racing since the age of 7. He started in karting in Tasmania and soon went to race in Melbourne. He was getting an excellent performance so, with the green light of his family, he moved to Europe to face the most important karting challenges… “By the team I was 9 I was visiting Europe once a year for a few weeks to race in the World Series with good results”. Then it was At 15 when he took the decision to start in racing single seater cars in the Italian Formula 4 championship in a very small, 1 car team and after this he managed himself to get a seat in bigger cars… “At 16 I won the VdeV Monoplace Challenge which gave me the opportunity to race in the Formula Renault Eurocup. After good results there winning a couple of races I decided to move to the F1 paddock. Now I am focussing on 2020 to do the best I can and I’m not thinking beyond that. Last season was a tough year in FIA F3 but, after Monza crash I have been working really hard to come back stronger… I am fully confidence with Campos Racing team”.
When Alessio was young the passion for engines obsessed him. This is how his incredible adventure began. He started with bikes, on the advice of his father, taking experience during a year in the National Trophy championship. He realized that his real passion is to drive cars and so he decided to change. He joined the Technorace Team in F4 with Alessandro Perullo: “A fantastic experience, the team became a family for me, feeding the passion and providing me with basic tools to success. I drove my first races, overcoming my fear, and I definitely realizing that is my life!”. Last year he joined Campos Racing to learn as much as possible in FIA F3 to be prepared and ready for this second season… “They have a fantastic team and a specialized academy to teach drivers how to do their best. They believed in me and offered the opportunity I was waiting for a lifetime. After a first season focused in the learning process now Alessio feels ready to be competitive. “I’m really happy to join Campos Racing one more year. Team always gave their best and I’m so grateful to them for the improvements and the experience I gained. This year I’m ready to improve my results in the races, I’m looking forward to driving again in the FIA F3.”
