The future of FIA F3 World Cup is not clear that only its second running, who series Macau supports? The New F3 Championship or the F3 regional series?

F3 is in stake...Only 22 entries for this year's Macau GP, the lowest one since it was introduced to Macau since 1983....

I am wonder if FIA will be considerate in 2018, after the new F3 championship plan is announced....

Well thanks to the FIA, the great blue riband event has been ruined. Another thing they didn't think through

I’ll agree with you there. Barry must be turning in his grave. Very sad.

Do not forget that the Dear Old Barry was helping teams and drivers with local sponsors (which would have probably added 3-4 cars on this year actual grid) , thing, which i believe the FIA does not do.

Btw funny to see that FIA rules have been softened , as before drivers had to race F3 car for being eligible for Macau GP

Anyway no need to say that Barry is missed by many ...

While the Macau grid is low compared to recent years, won't this allow for better racing? Seems like large grids at narrow tracks like Macau, Pau, etc., always lead to trouble. No room to pass unless you force the issue.

And on the subject of the FIA, whatever happened to the FIA Middle East Cup that was suggested a few years ago?

Last but not least, think Monaco will be back on the F3 schedule next year?

But Macau is supposed to be where F3 drivers from all over the world compete. So it's hardly gonna be the same if there is only 22 on the grid. That said I would love to see F3 at Monaco again

What is more, we don't know whether Macau will join the new F3 championship or the regional series in 2019. Are there any development made by FIA for the outgoing F3 series in 2018.

Macau will likely remain a standalone event.

While there are significantly fewer teams in F3/GP3 at this point than when they started, limiting team entries to just 8 is a little strange.

Agreed. I think what the FIA want to do eventually is have a few (3?) World Cup events that would be open to the various regional F3 and F4 series where the top drivers can compete head to head. In a perfect world that would be Macau, Pau and perhaps an event in North America.

Entries limited to 8 Teams make sense if you want to give value to the service teams will offer. Limited editions are always more expensive .

FIA also want to make sure that all teams will start and finish the season.... so merging the best (Well funded teams) of FIA F3 and GP3 is also making sense.

Pau is too early in the season to attract rookies drivers willing to compete against the upper categorie .

Macau GP always attracts (normally) rookies as it is the only way for rookies to learn the track (no other formula categorie run there, so no alternative to F3)

The big problem at the moment is that FIA F3/GP3 will merge , F3 Regional will different Spec (probably similar to Euro Open Formula) and Japanese F3 will stick to FIA regulation beyond 2018... so hard to see clear at the moment in the junior formula ladder

Is this series about developing talent or filling the bank accounts of a limited number of people running the show?

The merger talks came about because of economic pressure and the realization that the market was saying no thanks to the current service. Not because someone wanted a higher margin for running a motorsport team. It is not some massive profit centre in a junior series like this one.

It's really just GP3 claiming the F3 name, I presume eventually Japan and maybe some more countries will set up domestic series of their own based upon something like a super f4, F3 as we know it now will cease to exist
