Just a week after the devastating news that team owner and former F1 driver Adrián Campos had passed away aged 60, the Campos Racing organisation reassure fans that the team, and Adrián’s legacy, will race on in 2021.
And the first driver to be confirmed for there FIA Formula 3 team is 18-year-old Belgian Amaury Cordeel who makes the step up from Formula Renault Eurocup 2.0 where he has been racing since 2019.
The former Spanish F4 champion is keen to get the season started and lead Campos to a fruitful 2021.
He said: “All winter the people around me have worked hard we finally concluded a great agreement with Campos Racing because we know that this team retains the required know-how to assist me as a ‘rookie’ in an ideal context.
“Over the last few years with their Driver Academy the team has proven to possess the right baggage to groom drivers for the top class, namely F1.
“I wish to thank my partners and hope that in the coming years together with them and with Campos Racing we write a wonderful motorsport chapter.
“Sadly, there is also less good news, because in the middle of last week my Campos Racing team unexpectedly lost their founding father, Adrian Campos Sr. I therefore wish to take this opportunity to express my sincere condolences.”
Campos’ 2020 in Formula 3 was mixed with Alex Peroni claiming a large chunk of the team’s overall points and they will hope that 2021 will be even more successful.
Sporting Director Adrián Campos Jr. added: “I would like to welcome Amaury to the team on behalf of all Campos Racing members and especially my father. Amaury is a driver who knows what it is to win a championship such as the Spanish F4 series back in 2018, and in whom we have high expectations.”
