Adrián Campos Suñer aka Adrián Campos was a Formula One driver from Spain. He played, without scoring a championship point, in 21 Grands Prix, debuting on 12 April 1987. He later moved, with further success, into team management. He was born on 17 June 1960 in Valencia, Spain.
He was the founder of the Formula One Campos Meta team, which competed from 2010 to 2012 in Formula One.
Campos first won the Spanish Championship in 1980 in radio-controlled car racing. A year later, he moved on to auto racing and from 1983 to 1985, finished three in the German Championship of 1985 in Formula Three. He competed with modest results in the Formula 3000 in 1986.
After F1 Campos participated in the team management successfully. In 1998 he formed Adrian Campos Motorsport, and in his first year before he automatically entered Formula One he won the Open Fortuna by the Nissan Championships. In his early years, he even ran Fernando Alonso.
The rescue contract was completed by shareholder José Ramón Carabante in February 2010 with the team of Campos struggling financially. Campos was succeeded by Colin Kolles as a team leader as part of the restructuring.
Campos was appointed the executive vice-president of the Hispania Racing Team/HRTF1.
🇬🇧 I am deeply saddened by the passing of Adrián Campos. We hadn’t known each other for a long time but we established a great friendship. Last night I lost a friend and motorsport lost an enlightening personality.
