The full entry list for this week’s post-season FIA Formula 3 Championship test on September 21-23 at Jerez has been released.
Each of the three days of the test will be split into two sessions, with the morning session running from 9am to midday local time on each day. The afternoon session on the first two days will run from 2pm to 5pm, and will run an hour earlier on day three.
Pirelli’s hard compound tyre will be made available to drivers through the test, with each car given eight sets of slick tyres and three sets of grooved tyres for wet conditions.
The highest placed driver from the recently finished season to be taking part is Franco Colapinto, who moves from Van Amersfoort Racing to MP Motorsport.
Also moving to MP for the test is Jonny Edgar, who raced for Trident this year, and Formula Regional European Championship racer Mari Boya. Formula Scout understands that Boya’s mid-season move from ART Grand Prix to MP in FREC was influenced by the prospect of the future FIA F3 opportunities with the Dutch squad.
Euroformula leader Oliver Goethe, who spent two rounds in F3 with Campos Racing, will test for Trident and his title rival Christian Mansell will drive for Campos this week. Both will need to head to Monza on Friday though for Euroformula free practice, and a fourth driver for testing has not been announced by either team.
Spanish Formula 4 leader Nikola Tsolov will test with ART GP, while Joel Granfors is representing GB3 as he tests with Carlin. This year’s GB3 champion will get a prize FIA F3 test, but as the season is yet to conclude it has yet to be determined which driver will get that test.
