Jack Aitken and Dorian Boccolacci, the latter enjoying the pleasure of racing on home turf, head out for another double-header race weekend of exciting FIA Formula 2 action





Campos Racing is ready to rock the fifth round of the FIA Formula 2 Championship, which is held at Circuit Paul Ricard in Le Castellet, near Marseille, in France. The Spain-based team will be entering its two-car assault for Jack Aitken and Dorian Boccolacci, who are making start to the season with wins, podiums and numerous points finishes for Campos Racing.


Anglo-Korean Aitken is in a strong position for the title in this first half of the season following his win in dominating fashion on the streets of Baku where he also clinched a third place on Sunday. Last but not least, Aitken also finished second in Barcelona. He currently sits fourth in the drivers’ standings with 62 points.



Boccolacci delivered to Campos Racing a strong weekend in Monte Carlo with the Frenchman taking fourth and fifth place finishes after showing podium potential pace. Previously, Boccolacci already scored twice in the Azerbaijan Grand Prix. Considering Paul Ricard is Boccolacci’s home round, it will give the extra motivation throughout the weekend.



The French circuit is 5.8 km long and after heavy resurfacing works in 2018, it features extremely low tire degradation but it could change due to forecasted high temperatures in southern France. The Mistral straight is still the most famous part of the track despite the current layout includes a chicane.



Both free practice and qualifying sessions will take place on Friday at 12.55 and 16.55. Saturday’s race with one mandatory pit stop is scheduled at 16.45 with the weekend coming to an end with sprint race on Sunday at 11.25. All times are local (GMT+2).




Adrián Campos (President of Campos Racing):
“We have two extremely busy weekends ahead with consecutive Grand Prix events and our target is to remain in title contention after these upcoming races… We are completing an excellent work but there is no time for relax! We need to continue like that to reach our full potential.”



Jack Aitken (Driver of Campos Racing):
“I am very excited to start racing again after a short break, and I think it’ll be an important round to try and build some momentum for the next few races. I’m feeling confident for this weekend as well, I’m sure we can be fighting for the win.”



Dorian Boccolacci (Driver of Campos Racing):
“I am really happy to drive in my home race, where I have already showed a good performance in GP3 series last season when I got the pole and finished in 1st position so, for sure the FIA Formula 2 will be more difficult but that is a good reference to run the weekend where I expect to have a lot of support from my fellow countrymen. After Monaco, this circuit is completely opposite with a large layout and a lot of loopholes so, that’s good to have this variety in the calendar! Let’s fight to achieve the maximum…”
