Current and Formula 3 graduates have starred in the Formula 1 mid season test.

2 current F3 drivers have stepped out of their current machinery and into current spec Formula 1 cars and impressed immediately going quicker than current F1 drivers! A number of Formula 3 graduates also impressed.

There is no doubt Formula 3 is a category (the only one in Australia) with the necessary relevance for young drivers aspiring to Formula 1.

Any young aspiring Aussies looking to follow in the footsteps of Daniel Ricciardo (2009 British Formula 3 Champion!), would certainly be putting a foot in the right direction by contacting on of our local Formula 3 teams on the 'Teams-Drivers' link at the top of the page to organise a 2018 drive. Teams will soon be looking at their 2018 line ups ahead of an exciting new era of Australian Formula 3.

See below the drivers who've put their Formula 3 experience to good use last week.
