Hello,

Alongside Formula One only in Formula three can be built own chassis and race more different chassis. In all other Formula series are the same chassis for every driver.

But unfortunately there are almost only Dallara chassis.

What other manufacture are there in F3 today? Who drivers with other chassis than Dallara?

Are there details to compare the cars?

I think Mygale is still making cars... at least there are some Mygale cars in the Italian F3 Championship, currently one of the very best F3 series around.

... and there might be some Lolas F3 still around. Not sure though

I think Dome are still building F3 cars for the Japanese series. Not sure if TOMS are still building their own car, but they are entered.

Instead of ArtTech, Mygale and Litespeed (don't know whether their car is still running), is there another car in a series anywhere? Or something in plan?

Don't forget Formula Ford...

Just because it's not carbon - does not mean the cars are not expensive !!!

Fspec... yawn.

Which what?

I think he asks what are changes in the rules, that make returning to the series attractive for Lola.

Nothing, fundamentally. They modify the F3 regulations usually every three years so the manufacturers do a new car. This time around it was extended to 4 years because but they didn't feel the economy could support it, so they delayed it a season to 2012. F3000 and now GP2 update their cars every three years too.

The F3 changes will be minor, they'll change the wing dimensions or limit the amount of winglets you can have, stuff like that. So because it's a minor reset it's a good chance for a manufacturer to join. But Lola are talking about joining in Year 2 of the next generation, 2013. I assume they aren't able to get everything up and running in time to do 2012 properly and doing 2011 would have been insane because the car would have only been useful for less than 12 months.
