Rosenqvist, who won Macau in 2014 with Mucke and 2015 with Prema, will be returning with the latter team, in place of reigning European F3 champion Lance Stroll – who has elected to skip the race due to clashing commitments.

He will partner Prema regulars Maximilian Gunther and Nick Cassidy in what is currently announced as a three-car line-up.

Juncadella, meanwhile, will run with Hitech GP, teaming up with the team's regular European F3 drivers George Russell and Force India development driver Nikita Mazepin.

Formula Renault 2.0 NEC and Eurocup champion Lando Norris will be making his Macau debut with Carlin, the team also calling up GP3 racer Jake Hughes and Peter Li, whose F3 campaign this year was cut short by a big crash at the Red Bull Ring.

Double R has one entry confirmed for Alexander Sims, the BMW factory driver having scored a podium for the British team in last year's event.

Both Carlin and Double R could potentially add another driver to their respective line-ups.

Both Van Amersfoort Racing and Motopark will run three of their four F3 regulars, with the Dutch team bringing along Callum Ilott, Anthoine Hubert and Pedro Piquet, while Motopark fields Joel Eriksson, Red Bull junior Niko Kari and Ferrari protege Guan Yu Zhou.

Mucke Motorsport has so far only announced David Beckmann, but has two more seats to fill.

Fortec will return to Macau with a new line-up of Sam MacLeod and Euroformula Open frontrunner Ferdinand Habsburg, while T-Sport will field cars for Andy Chang and Japanese F3 champion Kenta Yamashita.

Also present are Japanese F3 drivers Sho Tsuboi, Tadasuke Makino, Daiki Sasaki and Jann Mardenborough, the latter two partnering Hongli Ye at B-Max.

Alongside Stroll, further European F3 regulars such as Harrison Newey, Sergio Sette Camara, Ben Barnicoat and Ralf Aron are missing from the entry list.

Aron, however, is expected to enter with another team besides his usual Prema outfit.
