Campos Racing poised to add to FIA Formula 2 podium tally at Silvertone

11.07.2019: Anglo-Korean Aitken is looking forward to his home round at the world-famous circuit and Indian Maini expects a strong weekend in just his second event with the Spain-based team

Anglo-Korean Aitken is looking forward to his home round at the world-famous circuit and Indian Maini expects a strong weekend in just his second event with the Spain-based team

Campos Racing is ready to contest the seventh round of the 2019 FIA Formula 2 season in the frame of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone, the “Home of British Motor Racing” and an iconic track with a rich history. The British circuit is located next to the Northamptonshire villages of Silverstone and Whittlebury and its fast flowing nature is full of praise as it is extremely enjoyable for drivers.

Anglo-Korean Jack Aitken will get that little extra push from British fans around the track at his home round. Aitken currently sits fifth with 86 points in the Drivers’ standings after claiming one win and three podium results so far. Despite it was a bittersweet weekend in Austria for Aitken, the Briton is hoping to move back into title contention at Silverstone.

Arjun Maini made a promising start with Campos Racing at the Red Bull Ring as the Indian racer ran solidly in the top three throughout the first half of the feature race. With all this experience under his belt, Maini expects to be a stronger challenger on British soil.

Silverstone’s 18-bend layout always puts on good races for all the fans attending but at the same time it is extremely demanding for the drivers and cars. The circuit features several high-speed corners that put plenty of lateral stress through the tires. Last but not least, changeable weather conditions usually also play a key role every year, which underlines the importance of pit strategy.

Both free practice and qualifying sessions will take place on Friday at 11.55 and 15.55. Saturday’s race 1 with one mandatory pit stop is scheduled at 15.45 with Sunday’s sprint race bringing the curtain down at 10.00. All times are local (GMT+1).

Jack Aitken (Driver of Campos Racing):
“For my home race I really hope we can perform well and get the results we deserve after a tough few rounds. It will be nice seeing British fans all around enjoying one of the best weekends on the calendar.”

Arjun Maini (Driver of Campos Racing):
“I really like Silverstone as a track and I’m really looking forward to getting back on track in my Campos Racing car! The guys at Campos Racing really helped me settling back into single-seaters and I’m confident of making more progress at Silverstone and hopefully we can get a good result.”

Adrián Campos (President of Campos Racing):
“Silverstone is the true cradle of motorsports and, as always, our goal is to translate our hard work into strong results in an atmosphere of high motivation.”
