Campos Racing heads all-new Jeddah’s street circuit in high spirits

Campos Racing heads all-new Jeddah’s street circuit in high spirits

02.12.2021: The Spanish-based racing team expects a strong weekend with young, talented driver line-up consisting of Boschung and Caldwell with the urban circuit hosting the inaugural Saudi Arabian Grand Prix

The Spanish-based racing team expects a strong weekend with young, talented driver line-up consisting of Boschung and Caldwell with the urban circuit hosting the inaugural Saudi Arabian Grand Prix




Campos Racing will contest the penultimate round of the 2021 FIA Formula 2 Championship season this weekend. The new Jeddah Corniche Circuit is built by the Red Sea port city and is described as a real challenge for drivers with a mammoth layout of 27 corners!



The Valencia-based outfit is expecting to continue the streak of strong results with Ralph Boschung and recently confirmed Olli Caldwell, the latter making his debut in the series this weekend. The new driver line-up, a nice mix of experience and young blood, brings a breath of fresh air to Campos Racing.



After a two-month hiatus, Boschung will set his sights on adding more points finishes to his tally in his Campos Racing-run Dallara F2 car. The Swiss driver scored a fourth place result in the streets of Monaco and his season also includes two fifth places and three sixths so far.



Briton Caldwell will get his first outing in the car on Friday but, given the fact the Jeddah circuit is a new addition on the calendar, the series newcomer will get excellent chances to show his racing talents.



The Jeddah Corniche Circuit is the second longest layout on the calendar with 6,175 kilometers in length with just Spa-Francorchamps featuring a longer runway. Despite its urban nature, the Carsten Tilke-designed circuit is expected to be the fastest street circuit beating Baku and, more importantly, with Monza’s record average speed at risk.  


The concrete barriers are very close and, at high speed, they will give a very narrow margin for mistakes. Besides, the lightning system will ensure the running of the races at sunset/night. Last but not least, the hot humid weather will be extremely demanding for drivers and cars, particularly during Sunday’s feature race.



Free practice and qualifying sessions will take place on Friday at 11.45 and 16.20 respectively. As usual, both sprint races will take place on Saturday at 13.30 and 19.40 and Sunday will be devoted to the feature race, which includes a mandatory pit-stop for a tire change, at 15.25. All times are CET.




Adrián Campos (Campos Racing Sporting Director)
: “The Jeddach Corniche Circuit will be a completely new experience for everybody, but we have restlessly worked to prepare this weekend to the last detail. We expect to quickly adapt in order to meet our goals in Saudi Arabia.


We want to remain in podium contention with Ralph and, regarding Olli, we will help him to improve as fast as possible at the wheel of the Dallara F2 car. It’s going to be a challenging weekend but at the same time we are eying a positive outcome from the Saudi event.”




Ralph Boschung (Campos Racing Driver of FIA Formula 2):
“I’m excited for Saudi Arabia. It’s a new track for everyone, but it looks like it’s going to be a very challenging track, lots of high speed corners and concrete walls. This weekend will be pure fun.“




Olli Caldwell (Campos Racing Driver of FIA Formula 2):
Jeddah will be a super difficult track to master, but it feels like it will be very fun with lots of high speed corners. It’s all a big learning opportunity for me, I need to learn a new car at a difficult circuit and with a new team. I’m definitely looking forward to the challenge.”
