Mari Boya is “proud” of the form his Campos Racing team have shown at the in-season test after he set the fastest time on day two in Barcelona.

The Spanish team have impressed so far this week and with Boya leading the way in the morning and Oliver Goethe in the afternoon, they completed a sweep of both sessions on the second day.

Boya, who clocked a time of 1:26.646 to take top spot after also finishing second fastest in the afternoon session on day one, was more than happy with the team’s efforts so far this week.

“Day two was really good as well as day one,” said Boya. “The track is improving a lot compared to yesterday, but I am really happy about the job we are doing, and I am really proud of the team.

“But let's keep working, there is still one day to go and there are many things to be tried and to be improved. But I am really happy and let's see tomorrow how it goes.”

Talking through the two days of testing so far, Boya said: “We are working together with the engineers, and I think we are doing a good job. I feel confident with the car and all the time we are out on track we are on top or close to the top.

“This gives me a lot of confidence for Imola especially as it's the next event. So, let's keep working like this because I think we are going in the right direction.”

Boya currently sits ninth in the Drivers’ Standings, with his best result coming in the Melbourne Sprint Race where he finished fourth. He has also scored points in two other races but believes he and his team are showing in testing that they are capable of much more.

“I haven't had the best two rounds, I would say, of the Championship,” admitted Boya. “In testing we have always been competitive, so I just want to have a good quali and like we are showing the pace and performance is really good.

“Starting at the front and battling for wins, I think we are more than ready for that. So, let's keep working on this and I think the results will come.”

Looking ahead to the final day of running, Boya talked through the plan before revealing his hopes for some rain in his eagerness to learn as much as he can heading into the European rounds.

“We have three days, so we have been trying many things, but I will say the last two days we have focused more on performance,” he revealed. “Tomorrow there is some rain expected, so we want to try some rain setups, so let's see how the car works in there and also for sure if not we will have to do some long runs to keep improving and to be ready for all conditions.

“But to be honest, I'd be lying to you if I said I didn't want rain so I can see how the car works. You never know if you go to Belgium, Hungary, or Silverstone especially, we don't know what the weather will be like.

“If we are fighting for the Championship, I would like to have a taste of the car in the rain to keep improving and if we do lack something in testing, then we have something to work on, which will be better. If not, we will use the day for long runs, but we will do as much as possible.”
