Red Bull Junior joins Carlin for FIA F3 European Championship after his stunning debut race in Hockenheim
Daniil Kvyat will contest the remaining rounds of the FIA Formula 3 European Championship with Carlin following a successful debut in the series in Hockenheim. The 19-year-old Russian qualified on pole on his debut weekend at Hockenheim earlier this month and went on to take a third place in race three of the weekend. Kvyat will drive a fifth Volkswagen powered Dallara alongside team mates Harry Tincknell, Jordan King, Nicholas Latifi and Jann Mardenborough.
“It’s great news that I get to do the rest of the championship,” said Kvyat. “I really like the series and the first race was a great experience and gave me reason to do the rest of the season. I think it will help me develop as a driver, because the F3 car is great to drive, F3 is a very competitive series and I’m doing it with a competitive team which will give me an advantage. I’m going to be fighting for the high places, this is my goal.”
Round 4 of the FIA Formula 3 European Championship will take place at Brands Hatch this weekend.
