2019 FIA Formula 3 season

Well well, the FIA's stranglehold over the junior single seater ladder has almost been completed. The teams list for the 2019 season is out, and it is very GP3 focused. No Motopark, no VAR, but HWA join, and Prema unsurprisingly survive the jump.


The teams list:


ART Grand Prix
Campos Racing
Carlin
Charouz Racing System
Hitech GP
HWA Team
Jenzer Motorsport
MP Motorsport
Prema Powerteam
Trident

Whatever the F3-level alternatives are that will also run in 2019 are unclear, aside from the bizarre W Series and the ever-unimportant Euroformula Open series. Renault have their plans it seems.

Anyway, I can't imagine a calendar too different from past GP3 calendars, although I am hopeful for a cameo appearance at the Pau Grand Prix or the like. I also wonder what this move will mean for Macau and the likes of Japanese F3...

I can imagine Motopark's and VAR's anger at not being selected.
Especially when some teams that weren't involved in F3 or GP3 have been selected.

HWA? What single-seater experience do they have?
Charouz? They have been in F2 since - 1 full season?

Motopark not really a great surprise, as well known to Bruno since Russian Time days.

VAR more of a surprise though what issues since the investor/owner’s son stopped racing?

HWA and Charouz can afford the guarantees of running the three cars for the three seasons...

Do not forget the "F3 Euro Series" with the current cars supported by the current DTM organiser, which should run alongside DTM Events .



Charouz has been active racing team for severall years back in Formula 3000 so they are eligible to this new series alongside the fact that they also have deep pockets.


My personal guess is VAR and Motopark have been left aside for financial reasons.

I think there's no financial difficulty for Motopark and VAR, indeed Motopark express their anguish for failing to join new F3

So FIA F3 will jump from 240 hp to 350 hp. But the other "regional" F3 championships will remain with the previous performances.


That's a very stupid rebranding.

no it's not. it's been running like that for several years already with brdc f3 in the uk.

i guess they're running f3 and f3 regional on the same tyres as before?

This is just the same FIA stitch up, make all series spec, same suppliers, same teams, same people, this is why they hate GT3 and TCR so much,formulas outside of their control.

This GP3 with a different name. This new FIA F3 series gives a bad name to F3 legacy.

Wish all of us can enjoy this year's Macau GP, with a good farewell to Dallara F3

Has the incomprehensible W Series filled this role?

No they’ll both be there (if they get drivers).
