What future for Formula 3 Euroseries?
The withdrawal of ART GP from F3 Euroseries is bringing on the table the bases of an essential
question for the discipline. The structure was born as ASM and became ART, and they had
dominated many championship since its creation, and won many titles with drivers such as Grosjean,
Green, HĂĽlkenberg, Briscoe, Bianchi or even Lewis Hamilton and Paul di Resta. But since last year,
the grid has struggled to gather more than 13 cars.
ART had three cars, so technically there are ten cars remaining for next year, for now. As a possible
collateral victim of GP3, F3 Euroseries are facing a dilemma. To compensate the reducing of track
time, promoters are to try a new formula that is quite inspired from British F3, which is expanding a
lot right now.
So where is the discipline going to? Two theses are opposing: the first one is to say that the
withdrawal of this dominant structure is to get other teams apply, thus stepping into the breach to win
championships. The other thesis is more pessimistic and sees in ART's withdrawal the championship
reference leaving, and so there would be little interest in competing in F3 Euroseries. What happened
last year with Carlin seems to indicate us a trend.
Right now, organisers look confident, as it has been announced on the official Facebook page, but
beware of disinformation that we have seen with many disciplines that died in the past few years.
Only winter time will bring us answers.
