Dorian Boccolacci has secured the second Campos Racing seat alongside Jack Aitken for the 2019 Formula 2 season.

Boccolacci ran with Campos in the opening pre-season test at Jerez last month, but was replaced by veteran Roberto Merhi for the second and final test at Barcelona.

However, it is the Frenchman who will race for the team from this week’s opening round in Bahrain.

?It was not easy to arrive at this stage but we finally made it, thanks to everyone who make it possible,” said Boccolacci, who stepped up to mid-way through last season with MP Motorsport after winning races in GP3 with the team.

“I am sure we can make a good job this season together. The team is really professional and we have the same target so we will work as much as possible to get it as soon as possible.

“I really like the mentality of the team, I am half Spanish from my mother’s side, so I can speak Spanish with all the team. It?s easier to feel even more confident with the relation in the team.?

Team boss Adrian Campos believes its driver pairing will help it compete for the teams’ championship.

?With Dorian we complete a strong driver line-up and Jack and he will undoubtedly draw attention,” said Campos.

“We have set ourselves the goal of fighting for the teams? classification and, therefore, we worked hard on making our cars competitive.

“Besides, it was important to have a strong driver line-up comprised of two drivers collecting as many points as possible.?

The news means that just MP Motorsport is yet to confirm its driver line-up ahead of the opening round.
