Campos Racing prepares for front-runner positions push in Hungary

The Spain-based squad will head to Budapest with its three-car armada for youngsters Alex Peroni, Sophia Flörsch and Alessio Deledda

Campos Racing is ready for Round 3 of the FIA Formula 3 Championship, the third-tier of Formula 1 feeder championship. The Spanish outfit will head to Hungary for another action-packed weekend with no less than 20 drivers covered by just one second, which leaves no margin for mistakes. Three Campos Racing-colored cars will be on the starting grid with Alex Peroni, Sophia Flörsch and Alessio Deledda at the wheel once again.

Aussie Peroni made a strong start to the season with a third place at FIA F3’s season-opener event in Austria. Peroni drove a faultless race to take the final podium step after making his FIA F3 comeback following his crash at Monza last year. The Australian young ace seeks to return to form in the Hungarian Grand Prix and maximize chance of strong points.

German female driver Flörsch is always an eye-catcher in the paddock. Despite Flörsch is making her season debut in the FIA F3 championship this campaign, she already has the pace to break into the points-paying top-ten. The German driver already competed on the Hungaroring in past seasons and feels strong ahead the awaiting Mickey-Mouse circuit challenge.

Deledda also expects to further improve his learning curve on Hungarian soil. The Italian driver is comfortable and confident with the Dallara F3 2019 car and his goal is to put the experience he has gained to good use and climb spots in the overall classification.

Hungaroring is a sort of a big go-kart circuit with no time to breathe, neither drivers nor single-seaters. Its configuration features a lot of short, quick bursts of speed separated by slower corners, which arrive in quick succession. Its short straight further underlines its relentless nature with tires constantly working. Despite this fact, both tire wear and degradation are usually low. Last but not least, Hungaroring was resurfaced a few years ago and is much less bumpy nowadays.

Practice and qualifying sessions will take place at 09.35 and 14.05 respectively on Friday. Race 1 is scheduled on Saturday at 10.25 with race 2 bringing the curtain down on Sunday at 09.45. All times are CET.

Adrián Campos (Team Principal of Campos Racing): “We expect to continue the same positive streak in the FIA Formula 3 Championship. That’s why we continue restlessly working every day, so we feel confident it will pay off.”
