Kush Maini will join Campos Racing for next year’s FIA Formula 2 campaign the team has confirmed. The 22-year-old will be partnering Ralph Boschung, with the Swiss driver’s future already confirmed earlier this month.

The Indian driver made his single-seater racing debut back in 2016 in the Italian F4 Championship. He subsequently graduated through British Formula 3, Formula Renault Eurocup and eventually, FIA Formula 3.

Maini moves up to F2 after finishing this year’s F3 season 14th in the Drivers' Championship. He recorded a best finish of third with that result coming in the Budapest Sprint Race.

“On behalf of Campos Racing, I would like to extend a warm welcome to Kush,” Team Principal Adrian Campos said. “He is a very committed, professional racing driver with a great work capacity, so we expect he will be able to complete a strong rookie season next year. He carried out some strong performances in FIA Formula 3 this season and hopefully he will make further improvements in the ultra-competitive FIA F2 Championship."

Maini himself added that he was looking forward to joining the Campos team and has already been preparing for next season at the team’s headquarters.

"Super happy to be joining Campos Racing team! I’ve spent some time with the team at their workshop and really enjoyed the atmosphere and the professionalism, looking forward to the three-day test at Abu Dhabi to officially start our relationship together! I would like to thank Mumbai Falcons, Omega Seiki Mobility and JK Racing for all their support"
