F3 Asia Round 1 Dubai: F2 and F3 drivers take to the desert

F3 Asia has officially begun, marking the end of the winter break for many F2 and F3 drivers. More than a handful of the drivers from FIA F2 and F3 descended on Dubai. A sceptic might suggest this was them to farm superlicence points. However, there is no doubt many of those racing were happy […]

The 2021 weekends that W Series and Formula 3 share
