Campos Racing completed its FIA Formula 3 collective testing and gathered valuable data for the upcoming events on the calendar. The Spain-based team took part in the event with its three drivers Hunter Yeany, Pepe Martí and David Vidales behind the wheel.
This happened in the Dallara F3 machines at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, where the third round of the season will take place in May. They all ran qualifying and race simulations over the two days of testing.
On Friday the track action kicked off with David Vidales placing himself in the top ten by setting a lap time of 1m32.882s in the morning session. Further adrift, Yeany and Martí set lap times of 1m33.365s and 1m33.758s respectively. Due to the high temperatures, track conditions and times did not improve in the afternoon, with Martí setting the fastest time for a Campos Racing driver with a lap of 1m34.527s. Vidales clocked a lap time of 1m34.605s and Yeany scored a best lap of 1m35.259s to his name.
Saturday morning it was expected to be a fast session in terms of times and everything went according to plan. Spaniard Martí set a lap time of 1m32.380s, less than a tenth faster than Vidales’ lap time of 1m32.433s. Yeany also closed the morning session very close with his best lap of 1m32.549s. After the qualifying simulations in the morning, the afternoon was devoted to long runs. Under such circumstances, Spaniard Martí came second with a time of 1m34,984s. His compatriot Vidales was 9th on the timesheets with a lap time of 1m35.435s and Yeany put together a best lap of 1m37.959s.
The FIA Formula 3 Championship heads to Imola (Italy) next weekend for the second round of the season.
