2021 podium finisher David Beckmann will join Campos Racing for Round 5 of the season at Monza, with the Spanish team announcing that he will replace Matteo Nannini.

Beckmann is in his rookie season of Formula 2 and will join Ralph Boschung in the garage, looking to build on his tally of 25 points, which includes third place in Sprint Race 1 at Sakhir and second in Sprint Race 2 at Baku.

Beckmann will be the third driver to take to the wheel of the number 20 car at Campos this season, with Gianluca Petecof and Nannini also enjoying spells at the team.

Beckmann was a title contender in the 2020 Formula 3 season, eventually finishing sixth with five podiums, including two wins.

“I’m extremely happy joining Campos Racing and continue contesting the FIA Formula 2 Championship at Monza,"said Beckmann. "Campos Racing is a strong, experienced team and has a long tradition working with very talented and successful drivers.

"We would be amazing to translate this first chance into a long-term partnership but let’s take everything step by step. I want to prove my speed at Monza and build on it scoring some good points for Campos Racing.”
