The Formula 3 season ended three weeks ago in Mugello, but on October 5, the official two-day tests start in Barcelona, in which teams and riders of the youth series will already begin preparations for the 2021 championship.
On Monday, the work will be organized according to the following schedule: the morning three-hour session starts at 9.00, the afternoon one – at 14.00. On Tuesday morning, the schedule will be similar, but the afternoon session will start at 13:00 and end at 16:00.
Pirelli’s tire makers have prepared for the tests the tires of the only Hard compound, and six sets are allocated for each car for two days of testing.
The tests will involve both well-known young riders and newcomers hoping to make a good impression and get a place in one of the teams next season.
In particular, Arthur Leclair, the younger brother of Ferrari driver Charles Leclair, will work with the Prema Racing team. Also, this Italian team invited 17-year-old Norwegian Dennis Hauger, the reigning Italian Formula 4 champion and participant of the Red Bull youth program, to the tests.
In addition, David Schumacher, son of Ralf Schumacher and nephew of the seven-time world champion, will be working with Prema on Monday.
On both test days, the ART team’s car will be piloted by Victor Martins, individual leader of the Formula Renault Eurocup, while another Renault Sport Academy student, Chao Collet, will join the MP Motorsport team on Tuesday.
It is also worth noting that the Russian SMP Racing driver Michael Belov will work with the Charouz Racing System team in Barcelona, while the German Sofia Florsh will drive the Campos Racing car.
