FIA F3 started in 2010 as a stage below FIA F2. In the FIA F3, every car uses the same chassis, the same engine and the same tires. Therefore, it really depends on the driving performance of the drivers and the ability of the team to get the most out of the car. Many FIA F1 drivers had their professional start in the FIA F3.

WEEKEND FORMAT

On a Friday, there is one Free Practice session of 45 minutes and one Qualifying session of 30 minutes.

One Sprint Race will take place on Saturday, the length of which will be confirmed ahead of the first round of the 2022 season.

The Feature Race will take place on Sunday morning ahead of the Formula 1 Grand Prix. The length will also be confirmed ahead of the first round of the 2022 season.

A schedule will be issued in the leadup to every round to determine timings of each session.


STARTING GRIDS

The results of the final classification of Friday’s Qualifying session will determine the starting grid for Sunday’s Feature Race.

The starting grid of Saturday’s Sprint Race will be determined by reversing the top 12 finishers of Friday’s Qualifying session.
