Jack Aitken hands Campos Racing another FIA Formula 2 podium at Silverstone

09.08.2020: The Briton completed a sensational weekend at the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix after finishing third in the Sprint race at the wheel of his Campos Racing-run Dallara F2 2018 Campos Racing and Anglo-Korean driver Jack Aitken shone

The Briton completed a sensational weekend at the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix after finishing third in the Sprint race at the wheel of his Campos Racing-run Dallara F2 2018



Campos Racing and Anglo-Korean driver Jack Aitken shone again on Sunday with another podium finish in the ultra-competitive FIA Formula 2 Championship. Briton Aitken delivered another strong performance to clinch his second consecutive rostrum finish in the main F1 feeder series and secure a valuable haul of points for the championship.



After his third place yesterday, Aitken lined up sixth on the reverse starting grid. Further adrift, his Brazilian teammate Guilherme Samaia set to start from 20th in the #10 Campos Racing-entered Dallara F2 car.



Aitken made a fantastic race start and moved up to fourth after just the first corner. The Anglo-Korean driver focused on nursing his set of tires in order to have a competitive pace throughout the entire race. At the same time, he kept Christian Lundgaard at bay in the first part of the race and Louis Deletraz later, when the Swiss driver moved past the Dane.



In the final laps, Aitken increased his pace taking advantage of his low tire wear and degradation and pulled away from the drivers behind. Up the front, Mick Schumacher and Robert Shwartzman made contact and Aitken moved into third with just one lap to go after passing the Russian driver. After 21 laps, Aitken took the checkered flag in third place. Samaia crossed the finish line in 19th place.



With such a strong weekend at Silverstone, Campos Racing already heads to Barcelona for the sixth round of the season in just a week’s time. The Spanish Grand Prix will take place at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya next weekend with Campos Racing aiming at continuing its podium streak.
