Caldwell stepping up for remaining rounds

It has been announced that Olli Caldwell, will be racing for Campos in the final two rounds of the Formula 2 Championship.

This year Olli has been competing in Formula 3 with Prema which saw him take one win and three further podiums, it is his second year in F3 with his rookie campaign he drove with Trident where he scored four top 10 finishes.

Not only has Olli won in F3, he has also won in UAE, ADAC and Italian F4, as well as claiming seven podiums and a win in the 2019 Formula Regional European Championship where he finished 5th.

Olli will be replacing David Beckmann, who has already had to leave F2 once already this year due to financial reasons, it hasn’t been said why this time but its most likely the same issue.

“I’m excited to join Campos for the last two rounds,” said Caldwell, “They’ve made good progression throughout the year so I’m really looking forward to working with them. I want to thank the team for the opportunity, I can’t wait to see what the car can do and gain experience ahead of my goal of a full season in Formula 2 next year.”

Campos Racing Sporting Director added: “I would like to extend a warm welcome to Olli from Campos Racing. Olli is a driver who always awakened our interest and very recently he has played a key role in the FIA Formula 3 in which he performed excellently. Our goal is to help him to rapidly adapt to the Formula 2 car. We feel confident that joining Ralph, our driver line-up will be able to deliver strong performances and achieve top results during the last two rounds.”

My Opinion-

I think this is great! Olli is a talented driver and it shows within his results in single seaters. I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do in Saudia Arabia and Abu Dhabi. Hopefully this will lead to a seat for 2022!
