American Hunter Yeany will step up to Formula 3 on a full-time basis in 2022, joining Spanish rookie Josep María Martí at Campos Racing.

The 16-year-old made his F3 debut last season with Charouz Racing System, competing in Spa-Francorchamps and Zandvoort, with a highest finish of 18th.

The move to European racing followed stints in American-based Championships Indy Pro 2000 and Formula Regional Americas last season.

Driving for Velocity Racing Development, he took three top 10 finishes from eight races in Indy Pro 200 and finished in the points in 12 of the 13 races he competed in Formula Regional Americas.

“I’m really excited to announce that I’ll be doing the full season of FIA F3 with Campos Racing,” said Yeany. “I would like to thank Campos Racing for the opportunity and my family and friends for their support.”

The American became the youngest winner of the Formula 4 United States Championship in 2020, his first year of single-seater racing. Yeany dominated the Championship, winning seven times and taking 14 podiums from 15 races.

Campos Racing Sporting Director Adrián Campos added: “I should like to extend a warm welcome aboard to another young driver as Hunter. Probably alongside Pepe they are the youngest drivers in the field, but we perfectly know how talented he is.

“We will do our utmost to help him quickly in such competitive racing series and we are sure Hunter will reach his full potential.”
