Petecof will probably be racing in Regional F3. 

Drugovich will do another year in F3.

Collet will race Renault F3 again, I think.

Prema is asking 1.2 million euros in order to race in their team next year.

 

I wonder how much unofficial testing are they doing with old GP3 cars.

 

Also is it not time for FIA to implement a price tag for F2 and F3....

 

It is getting ridiculous...

When the team principal at Van Amersfoort was interviewed during the Italian F4 race this morning, he said Dennis Hauger will move up to International F3 next year.

How do they get Monger's hand controls past the really strict F3/F2 rules. And will other teams be allowed to offer those modifications to their drivers?

Under old rules he woudn't have been allowed to drive a single seater at all, but the FIA ruled that he (and other disabled drivers) could take part with appropriately modified cars. Why any other driver would want to use a hand throttle behind a moving steering wheel, when it makes it more difficult (ask Monger) I don't know. In any case they couldn't; the modifications would have to be appropriate to their disabilities, and at present none of his competitors has any.

Seems like a slippery slope to allow cars to have different tech regs...

 

With enough time a hand throttle might be easier or at least better. Down to personal preference and all.

I remember Jason Watt was denied from racing in a few international series with custom hand controls, so he only raced in national series after his accident.

Steering-wheel mounted hand throttles preceded foot throttles on cars. The pedal became universal because of its overwhelming advantages. As for catering for someone's disability being "a slippery slope"....

Allowing one driver to run to a different set of regulations, regardless of reason, is a really bad precedent. 

 

I'm not as good as half these guys, should I get less ballast?

Easily solved. Let them all have to use hand controls only.

 

But it's a really silly argument to suggest that disabled drivers have some advantage.  As Sterzo implies, if there was a genuine advantage to be had, all F1 cars would feature hand controls.

None whatsoever.  But the chances of it happening are less than infinitesimal.

does Lundgaard move up to F2 or does he stay? I see him being in every F3 test session so far in the last 2 days between all those rookies.

Unknown.

Though I wouldnt take him taking part in this test as a indication that he stays in F3. Tsunoda is as well and Marko already said that he will move up.

(maybe a bit driving in preparation to Macau? idk)

Depends on where Renault spends the money planned of the 2020's Hubert season.

 

Stick with Aitken or promote Lundgaard.

Aitken has done well this season but he’s never going to get to F1 in a million years - so logically you’d go with Lundgaard, surely.

 

feel it might be a season early though.

I think Lundgaard should stay another year in F3, what's the rush? He's very young, yet to do 2 years in any series, time to build a little experience - specially experiencing the pressure of having to build up on last year and be a title candidate, rather than being on the nice comfortable rookie underdog role again - and then be stronger to attack F2 in 2021 under a closer eye from the F1 paddock.

I'm surprised by the omission of Liam Lawson from the test, has he left MP Motorsport? I'm pretty sure I read somewhere he's doing Macau, but I haven't heard what his plans are for next year....

He’s got a good career progression going on. From F1 to F2 and now to F3. With a bit of luck he’ll be racing F4 cars in a couple of years.

He's still with MP for Macau. My guess for next year is that he'll head to Super Formula - it's the Red Bull Honda way forward.

Okay ta, I hope not, prefer to see him stay in Europe and do a 2nd season in F3 but with a stronger team.

Absolutely, once a separate spec car is made available, it should just be a simple courtesy to add it to the rules that either configuration is allowed to be used, no one is likely to do so if they dont have to, but at least the option is there and there can be no question of competitiveness.....

Well what if it turns out it is easier to control through steering wheel buttons or paddles than through pedals, and drivers are forced to go that way to remain competitive? Are we to change everything driving is about and has been about for over a century, just to make sure regular drivers don't get occasionally outpaced by drivers without legs?

That boat has sailed.  Modern racing cars don't have clutch pedals, don't have gearlevers, the throttle pedal isn't in the middle anymore, so much has changed in a century.  They even stopped having hand throttles - until now.

Calan Williams is our first 2020 driver. 

 

http://www.fiaformul...-2020-campaign/

 

 

Gotta say though, it's hilarious how they're grasping at straws in describing his success up to date. 

 

 

before going on to race in the 2018 and 2019 Euroformula Open F3 Championships, with Fortec Motorsport.

During those campaigns, he earnt a highest place of fourth, as well as a strong run of seven points’ finishes in a row.

 

Fourth place and seven points finishes in a row in the mighty EF Open? Oh my, how impressive. I don't really get why they wrote it at all, it would look better without even mentioning these results.

The Old history fan is back :wave:
His name is Calan
https://calanwilliamsracing.com/


I’m torn between whether Lundgaard needs to graduate to F2 or stay another year in F3. Will Denmarknbe able to support two concurrent drivers on their Way to F1? Lundgaard needs to be in F2, and I don’t see Vesti not going there at some point either. But will there be room for two Danes to graduate at the end of the 2020 season?

I don't think Lundgaard's season was impressive enough to step up to F2 immediately. First he should show his worth in a proper championship fight.
