Oliver Goethe will be back for a second FIA Formula 3 campaign with Campos Racing. The Red Bull Junior Team driver is the first of the Spanish outfit's three drivers confirmed for the 2024 season.

The 19-year-old makes the switch from Trident, with whom he finished eighth in the Drivers’ Championship this year. He earned his maiden victory in the Silverstone Feature Race, alongside a podium finish in the opening Feature Race in Sakhir.

Ahead of his second season, Goethe said that he was eager to be quick out of the gates and fight upfront from the get-go.

“I am excited to be back with Campos Racing for a full season! They helped to make my entrance to FIA F3 as smooth as possible back in 2022. This year we completed a successful post-season testing programme and the Macau GP together which makes me feel positive about what’s coming next. My goal is to fight for wins and podiums from the start and be consistent. That’s what matters the most in this Championship.”

Goethe’s single-seater career kicked off in 2019 when he made a one round appearance in the Spanish F4 Championship. Returning for a full season the next year, he earned one win and six podiums on his way to fifth in the Standings.

From there, he went on to compete in the 2021 Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine. After racing in the Formula Regional Asian Championship at the start of 2022, Goethe triumphed in the Euroformula Open Championship, achieving 11 wins and a further seven podiums on his way to the title.

That same year, the German-Danish driver made his Formula 3 debut with Campos, securing a best result of fourth across his four race appearances. He reunited with the Spanish team during post-season testing this year and went on to go fastest on Day 1 in Jerez and Day 2 in Barcelona, before finishing ninth in the Macau Grand Prix last month.

Campos Racing Team Principal Adrián Campos Jr added: “It’s great to have Ollie joining Campos Racing for 2024. He is a very talented driver, who has showed great potential in the FIA Formula 3.

"Ollie made his debut in the series with us and he is now further stronger and experienced as already seen in Macau making an amazing recovery drive in such difficult urban circuit. Hopefully we have an exciting, successful campaign ahead together."
