I think the Macau orangaiser has the final right to decide whether DRS zones should be set at the Guia Circuit or not, but the rule should include this because this is a part of the dallara chassis.

The final straight to Lisboa corner seems long enough.


ANyway, I think that running GP3 cars at Macau is a bad, dangerous idea.

Macau circuit may introduce DRS for F3 race, but subject to final homologation by the FIA. Also, it is almost set that all the teams who are competing the F3 championship will go for Macau, but not sure about the drivers.

I hope Jamie Chadwick will come and race in Macau as the W Series champion. HiTech should run her entry.

Her pace will be an embarrassment. As so, I hope you're right and she shows up.

I think the preference will be given to those who did race in a F3 2019 chassis.

I visited Motorsport Stats to compare the lap time between F317 and F3 2019 for circuits which both F317 and F3 2019 raced for

1. Red Bull Ring
Fastest Qualifying Time: 1:23.170 (F317), 1:19.716 (F3 2019), 3.454 seconds faster
Fastest Race Time: 1:23.812 (F317), 1:21.042 (F3 2019), 2.77 seconds faster

2. Silverstone
Fastest Qualifying Time: 1:50.460 (F317), 1:43.902 (F3 2019), 6.558 seconds faster
Fastest Race Time: 1:51.812 (F317), 1:45.692 (F3 2019), 6.12 seconds faster

3. Hungaroring
Fastest Qualifying Time: 1:34.937 (F317), 1:31.761 (F3 2019), 3.176 seconds faster
Fastest Race Time: 1:36.404 (F317), 1:35.307 (F3 2019), 1.097 second faster

But there is limitation while just comparing lap times
Euro F3 have 2 practice sessions, 3 qualifying sessions, 3 races
FIA F3 only have 1 practice session, 1 qualifying session, 2 races

I do think so. I do also think Jamie will try to avoid any kind of track comparison from now on. F3 is the big league, not what she has been racing.

And it needs a higher FIA licence to drive the new chassis.

That I am pretty sure she can obtain easily. In the end, if you read some press, she is the new Queen of motorsports.

Macau’s Guia Circuit will experience some minor changes to the track this year to accommodate the racing program, including the addition of the new Formula 3 car models.

But the most significant change will be seen in the widening of the Mandarin bend by moving the barriers further out, the Times has learned from a source, who asked not to be identified because they are not authorized to speak to media about the plans.

The move is justified as “a way to help to prevent accidents” such as those which have previously occurred at that section of the circuit, including a major accident in 2012 that resulted in the death of Hong Kong racer, Phillip Yau, when his Chevrolet Cruze hit the barrier at high speed during the Macau Touring Car Cup.

However, there has been some doubt cast on whether widening the track will help prevent such accidents.

A former Macau Grand Prix competitor who knows the circuit and racing sports in general, told the Times, “for racers, a wider bend always means that you can go faster through it. That’s the standard thinking. Everybody in the racing world knows this.”

=================================================
I am also not sure widening Mandarin Bend will help to reduce accidents. The new F3 cars are already faster and you make the corner even faster? I am not sure what the logic is behind the idea.

There's a lot of pressure on that statement. What if she proves to be average or unsuccessful against a 'standard' motorsport grid, discrediting the entire process of W Series in itself?
