Ex-Ferrari Driver Academy member Petecof jumps up to F2 · RaceFans


In the round-up: Gianluca Petecof, who split from the Ferrari Driver Academy after winning the Formula Regional European championship last year, will race in Formula 1 this season.

Petecof to race in F2 for Campos

Petecof beat fellow FDA member Arthur Leclerc to the FRE title by 16 points last year. The 18-year old will graduate straight to Formula 2 with the Campos and join Ralph Boschung in the team’s 2021 line-up.

He was signed to the team by its founder Adrian Campos prior to his sudden death last week. “It is an honour to know that one of the great Adrian’s last wishes was to have me in a Campos car and it motivates me in a special way more than ever before,” said Petecof.

“Campos Racing has a winning culture and giving unique opportunities to young drivers is in the team’s DNA. I cannot wait to start working with them and prove ourselves once again.
