The FIA Formula 3 Championship car made its track debut in 2019 and is regarded as the perfect machine to fill the gap between the Formula 4 and Formula 2 categories.

The FIA Formula 3 Championship marks a key phase in the development of junior drivers that have an ambition to earn a place on the Formula One grid.
With many drivers learning some introductory single-seater racing skills in the Formula 4 category, the step up to F3 machinery takes the learning experience to a whole new level thanks to enhanced aero, various set-up possibilities and tyre management skills.
The 2020 F3 car is powered by a 3.4-litre, normally-aspirated Mecachrome engine that delivers 380hp at 8000rpm. With a Dallara chassis underneath them, drivers must show their race craft and speed – as well as their ability to manage their tyres and race strategy.
With the 2020 FIA Formula 3 Championship calendar spread across nine Grands Prix weekends (supporting F2 and F1) and with two races per weekend, our trio of Charouz Racing System drivers must make the most of every opportunity they have on track.
It will be crucial to maximise results during the 18-race season and to take as much learning as possible from the category.
Drivers that do both will be in a great position when it comes to taking the next step along their career development path – and graduating into Formula 2.
