Campos Claim Three Points Finishes in Monaco Campos points Monaco - FIA Formula 2 News

Campos finished in the points in all three races thanks to Ralph Boschung, as the Swiss driver delivered a valuable performance around the narrow streets of Monaco.

While his teammate Gianluca Petecof didn’t have luck on his side, he still showed improvement compared to Sakhir.

The first Sprint Race saw a clean race start by Monaco’s standards, and Boschung, who started fifth, kept his position. Further down, Petecof also ran consistently to move up the field later in the race.

Boschung was in fifth when a car in front had the engine go, which elevated him to fourth, where he stayed for the rest of the race. Unfortunately, Petecof clipped the wall and stopped on track with five laps to go.

Saturday bought more excitement for race fans, as the second Sprint Race started with a wet track. With all drivers on the wet tyres, Boschung got himself into sixth after the first corner. Petecof had no luck as another driver hit him, and the Brazilian was straight into the wall.

Boschung mastered the difficult conditions, he managed his tyres which paid off when a late safety car came out.

The Swiss driver kept his rivals at bay to cross the line in sixth, claiming another set of points for Campos in Monaco. He was later given another place when the race winner was disqualified after the race.

The Feature Race ended the action around the streets of Monaco. Boschung lined up sixth, while teammate Petecof was forced to start from the pitlane.

Boschung finished in sixth after overtaking a competitor after the pit window, while Petecof, who was in contention to post the fastest lap, finished 16th gaining valuable experience in the car.

Adrián Campos-Suñer Torres, Campos Racing’s Sporting Director, said: “Little by little everything is going according to our plan.

“After a tough start to the season in Bahrain, due to reasons beyond our control, we secured point-finishes in all three races in Monaco, one of the more difficult ones on the calendar and in which every small factor counts.

“We expect to continue improving in Baku and definitely putting ourselves in podium contention there.”

Formula 2 will head to Baku for round 3, where Campos will hope that the faster street circuit will give them more points and podiums.
