Briton Olli Caldwell and his Swiss teammate Ralph Boschung are ready to get back on track, as the first of the 13 racing weekends of the FIA Formula 2 World Championship held in Bahrain unfolds.
The F2 cars will run for the first time in 2022 season on the very abrasive and therefore very testing asphalt of Bahrain, which implies optimal traction and braking abilities, in order to be competitive throughout the whole weekend.
Campos racing presents a very heterogeneous duo, with an F2-veteran in 24-year-old Ralph Boschung and F2-Newcomer Olli Caldwell. The two racing drivers present in fact very different expectations on their performances during the upcoming season: as Boschung enters his first race weekend with confidence, saying he and the team are “confident they can start the campaign in a strong fashion” and seems to be willing to top up his best results scored so far, an excited Caldwell chases more personal goals, stating he is looking forward to “keep improving” as the “rookie year is a big time to learn”.
Team principal Adrian Campos reveals the team has “high expectations and will hopefully continue on an upward trend”, as a strong momentum was built during the very successful last two rounds of the 2021 season, with Boschung stepping on the podium not once, but twice.
The upcoming season will see some very fundamental changes; in fact, every race weekend will be featuring only a sprint race on Saturday, and a feature race on Sunday, whose grid placements will be determined by the results of Friday’s qualifying session.
The first sprint race of the year will be held on Saturday at 17.40, and the main race on Sunday at 11.40 AM.
