Great Britain’s Team West-Tec is going to contest its maiden FIA Formula 3 European Championship season, next year. John Miller, on an equal footing with his Co-Team-Principal Gavin Wills, explains why the squad opted for entering the FIA Formula 3 European Championship and talks about the current planning state as well as his expectations regarding the debut season.
Are you referring just to the new engine? No, the new engine regulations aren’t the only reason. In addition, we already have raced the Dallara F312 in the past F3 Open season and so, we already know the car. But even more important is the fact that we succeeded in putting together a really a competitive package, this winter. We could sign people with a lot of FIA Formula 3 experience, inter alia fast and experienced drivers. Altogether, we want to enter two or three cars, next year.
Could you please describe your expectations when it comes to your maiden season? I really have got a lot of respect for the performances of the teams and drivers racing in the FIA Formula 3 European Championship. Nonetheless, it’s our goal to battle it out for race wins, in our debut season. I know that the level is extremely high but we will work hard to be competitive right from the start. And together with our engine partner, Mercedes-Benz, I’m optimistic that we will be able to do so.
