Josep Maria Marti will make his Formula 3 debut with Campos Racing in 2022, confirmed on Wednesday.

Marti had a successful 2021 season with Campos as he finished 3rd in the Spanish F4 with 2 wins and 9 podiums scored. In 2022, the 16-year-old will face a new challenge in F3.

“I’m delighted to continue my racing career with Campos Racing for a further year. We completed a very strong work in 2021 and I think it’s the right choice to step up to FIA Formula 3 with the same team,” Marti said.

“I will continue learning and improving as a racing driver. We are extremely motivated to take up the challenge and give our best throughout 2022.”

The Campos Racing sporting director Adrian Campos Jr. also shared his thoughts about the announcement: “Our goal was always to have a racing team being able to open up opportunities of improving and growing as a racing driver from kart racing to the F1 feeder series.

“Therefore, we also joined the F4-based racing series last year. Pepe is a superb example proving this because in my opinion, he is one of the most talented racing drivers who never have competed with us.

“We are proud because he has chosen us to continue working together. He achieved fantastic results in F4 last year and we now have another huge challenge ahead, but we are looking forward to completing a strong 2022 season.”
