Campos Meta 1's car for its debut Formula 1 season has been homologated by the FIA following a series of tests last week. The homologation process, which is a prerequisite for approval of the chassis for competition, was carried out at Dallara's facilities in Parma, where the Italian manufacturer is designing Campos' car.
"The homologation of the cockpit is a critical point that defines the status and quality of a Formula 1 car," explained Campos Mehta's technical director, Toni Cuquerella. "The fact of having our cockpit completely homologized puts us in a privileged position and allows us to keep on developing the car.
"Dallara has done a great job in order to have everything on time and pass all the tests on the first attempt. We still have to pass the homologation of the rear structure which follows the same process and has already passed our previous internal tests."
Team boss Adrian Campos added: "It's a great satisfaction to pass these homologation FIA tests. It shows the technical strength of the partners and suppliers we have gathered for our entry in Formula 1.
"We still have a long journey in front of us but at this stage we are confident that we will be able to cover all the steps needed to make it with guarantees to the inaugural weekend of the season in Bahrain."
