Sophia Floersch joins the Formula 1 support paddock by securing an FIA F3 drive with Campos Racing.
Floersch has completed a move from the Formula Regional European Championship to FIA F3 for the 2020 season.
“I am very happy to be competing in the FIA F3 Championship together with Campos Racing,” said Floersch. “It is going to be my first season in the actual Formula 3 car with Pirelli tires, DRS and the Mecachrome engine.
“Without any test days I have to learn a lot, but I am looking forward to competing against the best drivers.
“For me, it’s important to get better each race weekend, work together with the team and have fun. It’s going to be a great year. The experience of Adrian Campos and his team will for sure help me.”
In the 2018 Macau Grand Prix, Floersch suffered a huge crash, her Van Amersfoort Racing car flying through the air into a photography platform. The 19-year-old was diagnosed with a spinal fracture and needed a 17-hour surgery to repair the damage.
