After announcing yesterday the continuation of the collaboration with Ralph Boschung for 2022, Campos Racing has unveiled the name of the driver who will join the Swiss in the last two rounds of the 2021 season: Olli Caldwell.
The English driver, fresh from a second season in Formula 3 full of ups and downs and finished in eighth position – on a par with Collet – with 93 points overall, will have the opportunity to make his debut in Formula 2 on the new track of Jeddah and then continue his contact with the new category in Abu Dhabi.
“I am thrilled to be joining Campos Racing for the final two rounds of the season,” said Caldwell.
“The team has made good progress over the year and I am looking forward to working with them. I want to thank the team for the opportunity. I am curious to find out the performance of the car and this experience is the first step towards the ‘goal of a full season in Formula 2 next year “.

Welcoming the team was Adrian Campos: “I would like to give a warm welcome to Olli. He is a driver who has always piqued our interest and recently performed excellently in Formula 3”.
“Our goal is to help him adapt quickly to the Formula 2 car. We are confident that together with Ralph our team of drivers will be able to perform well and achieve high level results during the last two rounds.”
Caldwell is the fourth different rider joining Boschung this season. The Spanish team had started the championship with the Swiss and the 2020 champion of the Formula Regional Europen Gianluca Petecof.
The Brazilian had to say goodbye to Formula 2 immediately after the Monaco round due to lack of budget and his place was taken by Matteo Nannini for the Baku and Silverstone events.
The Italian then gave the seat to David Beckmann who, after racing with the Charouz Racing System up to the English stage, defended the colors of the Spanish team in Monza and Sochi.
Now it is Caldwell’s turn who will have to quickly measure the new car on a demanding track like that of Jeddah where he will race next week.
