Campos Racing have announced their second driver for the 2021 Formula 3 season, confirming that Lorenzo Colombo will join Amaury Cordeel at the Spanish outfit.

The Italian racer will make the step up from Formula Renault Eurocup, where he took P5 with three wins and five podiums.

The 20-year-old has a history of competing for top honours, which includes third place in the 2017 Italian Formula 4 Championship. He also has experience in ADAC F4 and Euroformula Open.

“I am extremely excited to be joining the FIA F3 grid with Campos Racing,” elated Colombo. “I can’t wait to start working with the team in order to learn as much as I can before the start of the season. I`m feeling ready to give my best as a racing driver.”

Sporting Director Adrián Campos Jr. added: “I would like to welcome Lorenzo to the team on behalf of all Campos Racing and especially my father Adrián Campos. We have been trying to make this partnership possible in the past seasons without success for a number of different reasons.

“Lorenzo has always been very close to the team and he was that kind of drivers my father followed since we first met already four years ago. I am sure Lorenzo will manage to demonstrate during this season why my father believed in him and rated him as an extremely talented driver of huge potential.”
