Campos Racing has announced that Oliver Goethe will replace Hunter Yeany for the sixth round of the 2022 FIA Formula 3 season in Budapest.
Yeany was forced to withdraw from the previous round in Spielberg after sustaining a broken wrist in the Sprint Race. The American rookie still managed to reach the chequered flag but pulled out from the following day’s Feature Race.
Seizing the opportunity ahead of him, Goethe is determined to gain lots of knowledge and an understanding about the car at a track he is already fairly familiar with.
"I’m extremely excited to make my FIA F3 debut this weekend with Campos! I can’t wait to try out the car and compete amongst the best! It’ll be a great learning experience and I will make the most of it."
After beginning his single-seater career in Spanish F4 in 2019, Goethe made the step up to the Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine in 2021. Earlier this year, he competed in the Formula Regional Asian Championship and won on his debut in the 24H GT Series, taking victory in his GT4 class at the Dubai 24H.
Currently, the Danish-German driver, who is racing under a Monegasque licence, sits at the top of the Euroformula Open Championship standings with eight wins and four podiums to his name across the first five rounds – including a victory in the Hungarian capital earlier this month.
The 17-year-old will make his F3 debut around the Hungaroring this weekend for the Spanish team, racing alongside fellow rookies David Vidales and Josep María Martí.
