Campos Racing has announced that Ralph Boschung has withdrawn from the Barcelona weekend due to neck pain.

The team said in an official statement that after taking part in Free Practice today, Boschung would be unable to see out the remainder of the weekend.

“Unfortunately, our driver Ralph Boschung will not be able to participate in this weekend's round in Barcelona.

“The Swiss driver began to have significant neck pain after Round 3 in Imola. However, he was confident he would be able to race this weekend, but after today’s Free Practice he realised that he could not drive at the best of his abilities and has decided to withdraw from the event and focus on his recovery to try to be 100% for the next round in Monaco.

“Obviously the team fully supports his decision and wishes him a quick recovery."

Boschung said that he had a recovery plan in place and that he would be fully focusing on his preparation for Monaco.

“It’s a very though moment and difficult to accept, but health is always a priority. I have already set up a recovery plan for the next few days and hopefully I will be able to recover to race in Monaco next weekend. I want to thank my team and my sponsors for supporting me fully on the decision and wish my team mate best of luck this weekend.”
