Campos Racing is delighted to announce that Marino Sato will make his FIA Formula 2 debut this weekend at Spa-Francorchamps where he will join the team for the remainder of 2019. The 20-yeard-old driver will pair with Anglo-Korean Jack Aitken for the final four rounds, which will be held in Belgium, Italy, Russia and the United Arab Emirates.

The Japanese driver contested the FIA Formula 3 European Championship before making his debut earlier this year in the Euroformula Open. Sato has secured eight wins and ten podiums and currently commands the Drivers’ standings with just three rounds remaining.

We will work hard together to achieve success in the remaining races of the season and set the stage for the future.”
