After Qualifying in the top five for the third time in the last four rounds – a run that stretches back to Sochi in 2021 – Boschung was left raving about the one-lap pace Campos Racing have been able to find on a regular basis.
The improved pace on a Friday has been a consistent theme since the midway point of last season. Boschung hasn’t qualified out of the top seven since Round four of the 2021 campaign at Silverstone and he continued this run in the opener at Sakhir with P5.
Discussing the improvements made, Boschung pointed to the amount of time he’s now spent with the same team and machinery.
“Honestly, this is one of the reasons why I continued with Campos,” said Boschung. “Firstly, because the working relationship has always been better, but also because the developing of the car to suit my driving style and of my driving style to suit the car.
“Last year, it got better round-by-round and it made sense to continue because we will be edging away more and more towards the maximum performance from it.
“All credit to Campos because they have given me a car that is always very comfortable to drive in Qualifying and I am able to extract nearly the maximum out of it, so we are always consistently up the front.”
Boschung met his target of 10th in the Drivers’ Championship last season and ended the year with his first two podiums at this level, taking third in the Feature Race at Jeddah and in Sprint Race 2 at Yas Marina.
Continuing with Campos for a second full campaign, Boschung said that the improvements they’re making now are only minor, insisting that it’s the smallest of advancements that will earn them the biggest gains.
“We are going to be edging away at all of the little things that we maybe don't control or understand 100% yet,” he continued. “It is not a lot, though. I think the level in this Championship is so high that you only have to make minor tweaks.
“You shouldn't change the fundamentals of the car, the driver, or the way you work because this can lead to you being at the back of the grid. Every step we make now is very small, trying to reach better performances.”
