Despite Results Campos Make Progres and are Ready for Monza
Campos make progress despite poor results at Spa-Francorchamps.
Both Jack Aitken and Guilherme Samaia had a tough weekend in Belgium as the team continue to make progress.
Aitken made a positive start to the weekend, finishing sixth in the free practice session. However, red and yellow flags hindered the Anglo-Korean in qualifying and left him down in 17th for the start of the Feature Race.
Samaia had worse luck and couldn’t set a lap in qualifying because the car caught fire fortunately neither the driver nor car was damaged.
The Feature Race saw Aitken make a good start, while Samaia couldn’t get off the grid and lost time to the rest of the grid. Aitken’s pace was enough to carve his way through the field and was 13th by Lap 4.
The Brit moved up to eighth before making his mandatory pit stop on Lap 14. Aitken saved his tyres for the final laps of the race to cross the line in 14th. On the other hand, Samaia was forced to retire after 15 laps.
Aitken made another stunning start on Sunday, after just one lap he was in ninth. He continued overtaking rivals and made it past Luca Ghiotto for seventh before getting a 10 second stop and go penalty for starting the race out of position, finishing 17th. Samaia delivered a strong performance to take the checkered flag in 15th place.
On twitter, Aitken has been posting stories about Anthoine Hubert and the fun times they have had in a touching tribute to Hubert. ?? #AH19
