After making his debut in the Euroformula F3 Open achieving his first win, the Italian driver went on to win seven more races in 2016, winning the championship. Last year, Pulcini contested the GP3 Series adding another podium finish to his name.
Leonardo Pulcini: “I’m extremely proud and happy to be back with Campos Racing. They are a very important team for my career, because I learnt everything in racing with them. Besides, I alredy won with Campos. It’s my racing family for sure. I know they all are looking forward to helping me. We have put together everything and we approach a decisive season. I think we have a competitive package to be in win contention. We tested in Abu Dhabi and the car was rather competitive. His working method is great and I feel confident. I’m ready to start the season in style.”
Adrián Campos: “We are happy to welcome Leo at Campos Racing once again. Besides he is a very talented driver. We expect a lot from him and our goal is to repeat our previous success together.”
