This weekend, the FIA Formula 3 European Championship is going to contest the final race meeting of its 2014 season.
Esteban Ocon (Prema Powerteam) is the new FIA Formula 3 European Champion.
Thus, the 18-year-old Frenchman follows in the footsteps of last year’s European Champion Raffaele Marciello, but other than the Italian, he already won the title in his maiden season in Formula 3. With nine victories so far this season, Lotus Formula 1 junior driver Ocon already scored the biggest success of his career to date with three races to spare.
Nick Heidfeld has defended the new Formula E series following criticism from within the F1 paddock.
F1’s reigning world champion Sebastian Vettel recently slammed the fully electric powered series – which kicked off on the streets of Beijing last weekend with an all-star grid and global interest – as “cheese”.
Marco Wittmann used his first match point and already wrapped up the DTM title at the Lausitzring.
Sixth place was enough for the German driver of the BMW Team RMG to be beyond reach for his opponents with two rounds remaining. The 24-year old laid the foundation for his career among others in Formula 3, of which he bowed out as the runner-up in the FIA Formula 3 International Trophy at the end of the 2011 season..
