I am a bear of little brain and don't understand what your lists are, HistoryFan. Are they rumoured line ups and if so is there a source?

The bolded names are confirmed, the others are drivers that are likely to join the grid.

But Historyfan also makes sure when news of drivers come though this person bold the driver so we know its confirmed, I wonder how much longer we be waiting for the 1st FIA F3 date list as I thought we would have had an update on that matter but nope

I think the only remaining question is whether they will race in Hockenheim or not, otherwise you can already predict the schedule based on the F1 calendar draft.

No trips to either Hockenheim or Yas Marina (There a reason for the Yas Marina bit) as FIA has said its 1st ever FIA F3 dates starting in Spain as per GP3 seasons in past.

 

May 10-12 Spain Barcelona May 23-25 Monaco Monte Carlo June 21-23 France Paul Ricard June 28-30 Austria Red Bull Ring July 12-14 Britain Silverstone August 2-4 Hungary Hungaroring August 30-September 1 Belgium Spa September 6-8 Italy Monza September 27-29 Russia Sochi
 

 

The reason for no Yas Marina is to let the F3 teams and drivers to race at Macau

So far I would say Armstrong is the main title contender, then Vips, Daruvala and Tsunoda.

Shwartzman easily outperformed Armstrong in the second half of this season. I'd say it was probably Schumacker/Shwartzman/Vips with Armstrong and Ticktum considerably behind.

Ticktum is gonna do Superformula next season instead of this.

... which is slightly odd given the most logical thing would be to progress to F2. I take it either a) Superformula is cheaper and Red Bull don't want to pay a season of F2; or b) they think a full year living on a far away nation, with a very different culture, will do well to help him grow up.

Red Bull have said that F2 is too expensive and also they want him to do the simulator back at base during F1 race weekends to help the F1 team, so Superformula makes sense. Doubt he'll live in Japan all year, when Gasly did it he flew into Japan the Monday before the race and then flew home the Monday after.

 

More interesting is Superformula starting to take top line drivers away from F2 as cheaper, quicker cars and allows F1 team affiliated drivers to do the sim job during F1 weekends, might start to challenge F2 as the route to F1

Pau is Grade 3 like Macau so the new cars can't go there. Future sucks for these classic races.

It seems like less of a merge and just more a rebranding of GP3

Pau - Euroformula F3 (so similar to 2018 F3 cars)

Norisring - Formula Masters (ie 2018 F3 cars)

Macau - i've not seen any word on this yet other than the new FIA F3 will be too quick for Macau so reckon it will be Formula Masters ie 2018 F3 cars 

 

so in essence the new FIA F3 is just rebranded GP3 with a new car and the current 2018 F3 cars (which are old old Dallaras with modifications) will be used in everything else.

Really? Really. "We are delighted to enrich the Euroformula Open calendar with the Pau round..." http://www.euroformu...g-2019-calendar

Beckmann may be returning to what is effectively a development of GP3, but he's up against people with a more impressive record than he has. Without wishing to undervalue his skills, which are greater than mine, he's been top dog in absolutely nothing so far.
