FIA Formula 3

The FIA Formula 3 Championship is one of the first opportunities young drivers have to learn and experiment with aerodynamics and mechanical set up.

Along with experienced engineers guiding the drivers through every step of this process, the championship provides an invaluable start to a junior racing career all the while offering drivers a thorough understanding of the cars before moving on to a higher race category. Racing on the same circuits and using Pirelli tyres, it provides a fantastic stepping stone onward to the FIA Formula 2 Championship.

The FIA Formula Three Championship visits a variety of high profile tracks, supporting the FIA Formula 1 World Championship, offering drivers high visibility in front of F1 team bosses and decision makers.  

A new series for 2019, FIA Formula 3 Championship combines the best of the previous GP3 Series and FIA Formula 3 European Championship, guaranteeing drivers relevant experience on their way to the highest level of the sport.  

As Championship winners in both the former GP3 Series and FIA Formula 3 European Championships, Carlin are well placed to help drivers achieve their potential in the series.  

Carlin is proud to announce Japanese investment firm Buzz will continue to be the title sponsor for its FIA Formula 3 Team for the 2021 season, with the team racing under the title ‘Carlin Buzz Racing’.

Carlin's 2020 British F3 Champion Kaylen Frederick, Red Bull Junior Jonny Edgar and Ido Cohen make up the team's 2021 FIA F3 line-up.
