Although the FIA Formula 3 Championship reached his conclusion less than one month ago at Mugello, PREMA Racing is already getting back into action for postseason testing which will begin next week at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
Four drivers will line-up for the team in the two-day session at the Spanish venue on October 5th and 6th.
On car #1, Arthur Leclerc will have a first taste of the F3 machinery. The 19-year-old Monegasque is currently committed full-time to the Formula Regional European Championship with PREMA Powerteam. For him, it will be a key step to evaluate his 2020 prospects.
On car #2, Dennis Hauger will enjoy his first run under the team’s banner. The 17-year-old Norwegian, who won the 2019 Italian Formula 4 Championship, scored one podium in his F3 debut this year.
Car #3 will be split by David Schumacher and Roman Stanek over the two days. The 19-year-old German will drive on Monday, while the 17-year-old Czech will take over on Tuesday for Day 2. Both have been regulars in the series this year.
With two titles under its belt, PREMA Racing is already ramping up preparations to carry the same form in 2021.
“I’m really looking forward to testing with Prema. Considering their history and passion, I am excited to see how we will work together on the track and I’m ready to get in the car!”
“I’m delighted to take part in the FIA F3 test in Barcelona with Prema. The team did an incredible job this year. It will be a new car and a new track to discover for me, so the ability to adapt will be important over the 2 days. Thank you to Prema and the Ferrari Driver Academy for this opportunity!”
“I am really glad to have the opportunity to test with Prema and I am really thankful to have the opportunity to show my potential to them. I want to thank my dad and my sponsors for making this possible.”
“Testing with Prema is a great opportunity to learn as much as I can. I will have experienced teammates, so I will be able to gather a lot of information. It is only one day, but I’m sure it will be enough to show our potential.”
