The Australian driver spent two seasons competing in the Formula Renault series achieving four wins and five podium finishes.
Adrián Campos (President of Campos Racing): “Alex is a driver who last season showed some impressive performances despite his young age. Therefore, we believe that he has great prospects and, with the right preparation from Campos Racing, he will reach his full potential. Internally, we were very pleasantly surprised in the postseason tests in Abu Dhabi, getting a quick adaptation and achieving rather competitive lap times. We expect him to continue his progression, that’s why everybody at Campos Racing will put everything at his disposal to grow together.”
Salvatore Gandolfo (CEO of Campos Racing): “We are finalizing a potent driver line-up for the upcoming 2019 season. Alex, as all our new drivers, completely reflects the Campos Racing philosophy of signing up young talents who are hungry for success just like our team itself. We are delighted to help them develop their racing careers. It’s so nice to give young drivers a chance to advance into the FIA Formula 3 Championship.”
Alex Peroni (Driver of Campos Racing): “I was made to feel immediately comfortable with the Campos team in Abu Dhabi. The team did everything they could to help me and good lap times came very quickly” Peroni said. “I was very impressed with how hard they worked and from that moment I wanted an opportunity to work with the Campos team throughout the Formula 3 championship and I’m very happy that we have reached an agreement.”
