Campos Racing at the Temple of Speed: Monza

The extremely fast layout plays host to FIA Formula 2’s antepenultimate round of 2017 and Boschung and Visoiu target solid points haul

Just one week after its visit to visit to Spa-Francorchamps, the FIA Formula 2 heads to Italy for iconic “Temple of Speed” Monza, one of the oldest and beloved tracks on the main F.1-feeder series calendar. Monza, which has held every Formula One Italian Grand Prix since 1950, marks the antepenultimate round of the 2017 season and Campos Racing drivers Robert Visoiu and Ralph Boschung aim to continue points streak.

They both arrives in Italy in good shape after putting in good performances recently. Visoiu scored his first point Saturday’s first race in the Ardennes at Spa-Francorchamps last weekend. Both Boschung and Visoiu have gained plenty of previous experience at Monza achieving valuable in other motorsport categories.

Monza features long, fast straights and high speed corners such as the Parabolica or the Curva Grande. The low downforce configuration means drivers must try to avoid wheelspin. Tire wear is usually low but Monza’s high kerbs can damage suspension for drivers running over them.

Following Friday’s free practice and qualifying sessions, both races will take place on Saturday (16.00 CET) and Sunday (10.15 CET).
