David Beckmann will remain on the Formula 2 grid for this weekend’s Monza round, having secured a seat at Campos Racing a week after departing Charouz Racing System.
The German already has two podiums from his rookie F2 season, which looked like it would come to an end as family business commitments contributed to him leaving Charouz’s line-up ahead of Monza.
However he now won’t be missing a triple-header, as he takes the place of Matteo Nannini at Campos.
“I’m extremely happy joining Campos Racing and continue contesting the FIA Formula 2 championship at Monza,” said Beckmann.
“Campos Racing is a strong, experienced team and has a long tradition working with very talented and successful drivers.
“We would be amazing to translate this first chance into a long-term partnership but let’s take everything step by step. I want to prove my speed at Monza and build on it scoring some good points for Campos Racing.”
The Spanish squad started the year with Formula Regional Europe champion Gianluca Petecof in the car, then replaced him with Nannini when Petecof’s budget ran dry.
“Of course, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to David Beckmann,” Campos’s sporting director Adrian Campos Jr added.
“It’s amazing to have such a talented driver with us because teaming up with Ralph Boschung, we have an extraordinarily strong line-up with two youngsters of bright future. We would like to have him defending the Campos Racing colors after Monza, and we are working to do it possible.”
FIA Formula 3 Championship graduate Enzo Fittipaldi takes Beckmann’s place at Charouz for this weekend.
