Formula Renault Eurocup champion Max Fewtrell will make the step up to the new FIA Formula 3 championship this year with ART Grand Prix.

Fewtrell, who began his 2019 season last weekend in the Asian Formula 3 Winter Series, joins fellow Renault Sport Academy driver Christian Lundgaard and GP3 graduate David Beckmann at the team.

The move comes after a successful Formula Renault campaign, where he beat new team-mate Lundgaard to the championship title in his second year in the series.

?I?m delighted to Join ART for the upcoming season in FIA F3 Championship as I?ve seen the teams history and success in this series,” he said.

“It fills me with great confidence and belief that me and the team can perform really well together and get the results we want.

“I have some good teammates as well which is good as we can all learn from each other and push each other.”

ART team boss Sebastien Philippe added: “Max also has the typical profile of a driver that ART Grand Prix accompanies in their early years, which are crucial for training as a racing driver on their way to the top.

“Brilliant in karting, he pursued it with the same brilliance in motorsport by winning two titles in 2016 and 2018.

“The past season was particularly revealing of his talent and his ability to make the most of his equipment and his team in an extremely competitive championship.”
