Formula 3 will take place during the Russian Grand Prix 2021!
Changes were made to the calendar of the junior series of races so the final round of the Formula 3 championship will be held in Sochi instead of the USA during the Formula 1 Russian Grand Prix from September 24 to 26.
Sochi Autodrom will be the first circuit in the 2021 season to host all Formula Class races. Let us remind you that Formula 2 and Formula 3 have different calendars and do not overlap on the dates of the racing weekends since the following year. The last time the two main series of support races were held the same weekend in Mugello as part of the Tuscany Grand Prix last year.
Alexei Titov, CEO ANO ROSGONKI said: “Organization of an additional stage of racing series less than a month before the start of the weekend is a tricky challenge! We are confident that the high level of preparation for the race weekend of the main Formula championship will allow us to host the youth series races at the highest level. More racing is a joy for Russian fans. Moreover, the Formula 3 race will be an additional reason to support our driver Alexander Smolyar. Let's hope he will have home court advantage. Traditionally, Formula 2 and Formula 3 races in Sochi are always more successful for Russian pilots".
