The 19-year-old steps up straight off the back of his 2021 FIA Formula 3 campaign, which saw the talented British driver celebrate his maiden victory and score a total of four podiums in a challenging title battle.
Enjoying success throughout his junior career, Olli impressed as he rose through the ranks of Formula 4, scoring race wins in UAE, ADAC and Italian Championships respectively. Further sealing one victory and seven podium finishes in his rookie campaign in 2019 Formula Regional European Championship, before his FIA Formula 3 debut in 2020.
Having two years experience in Formula 3 machinery, Olli relishes the opportunity to race in the top-tier of the junior series, as he targets a full-season campaign for 2022.
Olli Caldwell will contest the final two rounds of the 2021 season in Jeddah and Yas Marina, where he will get his first taste of F2 machinery with Spanish-based team Campos Racing.
“I’m excited to join Campos for the last two rounds, 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.”
Sporting Director of Campos Racing, Adrián Campos Jr. adds:
“I would like to extend a warm welcome to Olli (Caldwell) 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.”
Infinity Sports Management, Harry Soden:
“This is a great opportunity for Olli ahead of 2022, teaming up with a strong team such as Campos Racing. He’s shown his winning potential this season in Formula 3 and I have no doubt that he will put in the same hard work and determination to make the most of this opportunity in Formula 2.
