Pole position and victory in the main race, Isack Hadjar set the record straight at Silverstone. This weekend (July 5-7), the French driver beat Paul Aron, his opponent for the drivers' title, 27-0, which allowed him to take the lead in the FIA ​​championship. Formula 2. A first place including the protégé of Red Bull could have grabbed it much earlier in the season.

According to Adrián Campos Jr, boss of the eponymous team, Isack Hadjar is undoubtedly the man to beat this season. “ I can not complain. We are performing quite well, both as a team but also the drivers, judges the Spaniard. Isack is in my opinion the driver to beat at the moment and even when he was not leading the championship, I think that was also the case. The only reason he wasn't leading the championship from the start was because of the bad luck we had earlier in the year. We are now in the lead and we have to stay strong, take advantage of the momentum we have and see how the rest of the championship goes. We have to advance race by race. »

At Silverstone, the Habs had to fight hard to secure their third victory of the season. Author of a bad start, Isack Hadjar then demonstrated his art of race management to be able to climb to the highest step of the podium.

“The main thing that changed everything was the departure, continues the main team of Campos Racing. The start was very difficult because it was raining, he had a bit of slippage and lost three positions. He wanted to take cover at the first corner and also lost a place to Bearman. We knew we had to fight, but also keep the tires alive. So we made the decision to go back a little, to have a good pitstop, a good lap on cold tires from Isack, which was very important.

We still had a very good pace because the tires were destroyed after the fight with Victor (Martins). We knew there was a penalty for Crawford and we told Isack not to risk anything, to stay within five seconds and that's how we won the race. The team and the driver worked well. »

Generally speaking, Campos Racing is having a top-notch season by providing a competitive car to its drivers almost every race weekend allowing them to give 100%. “We were strong at all the circuits, maybe not destroying everyone, but we were strong everywhere. Every weekend we come in and we're strong right away. That's the key to giving the drivers confidence, knowing that we can go into the next weekend strong, and I think we have a very good package. The team has done a very good job with the new car, and that is very important”, finishes Adrián Campos Jr.
