Arjun Maini is all set to return to the FIA Formula 2 grid. The Indian driver, backed by JK Racing, will take part in the upcoming F2 races at Austria and Silverstone. Maini will compete with the Campos Racing outfit, where he will partner Jack Aitken - the duo are a refreshed line up for the team.

Maini, naturally, is pleased to make it back to Formula 2, although it is as yet only a two-round stint in the series, in addition to his existing season in the 2019 European Le Mans Series. Speaking of his F2 return, the Haas development driver said, "As I have always stated, Formula One remains my ultimate aim. We made a decision to try something different this year and irrespective of the results, I believe it has worked for the best as my time in the LMP2 car has definitely helped prepare me for the future. I'm looking forward to these next few weeks and I hope I can put my best foot forward in both rounds. I know that joining mid-season without any testing is not easy for anyone but I am prepared to take on the challenge."

Meanwhile, Campos Racing team principal, Adrian Campos said, "I have closely followed Arjun's racing career for several years. He is a driver with the necessary blend of talent and commitment to make his prospects extremely interesting. It is fantastic to have him on board with us and our driver line-up consisting of Arjun and Jack (Aitken) is really strong. I am amazed by our new pairing in the FIA Formula 2 Championship."

Campos Racing is a Spanish racing outfit, famous for nurturing racing talents such as Fernando Alonso. The team are currently fourth in the 2019 championship, with a total of 115 points.

The Austrian Grand Prix is scheduled to take place between the 28th and 30th of June, and the British Grand Prix will take place between the 12th and 14th of July.
