Michael Masi, exclusively reveals the FIA Formula 2 and Formula 3 Championships will join forces with Formula 1 across next season’s race weekends, to form a ‘pyramid’.
Having ‘carefully looked at the impact of the changes that were made to the weekend format throughout 2021’, the FIA Single-Seater Sporting Director, Masi, stated:
“The FIA together with the promoters have concluded that a shared billing that showcases Formula 3, Formula 2, and Formula 1 at the same events, wherever possible, is more beneficial for both competitors and spectators.”
With the fullest support and respect for the former President of the FIA Single-Seater Commission, Stefano Domenicali, Masi explained:
“It reenforces the pathway to Formula 1.
“Stefano was instrumental in developing and refining that Single-Seater pathway from F1 through to F2, F3, Formula Regional and Formula 4; clearly identifying for young drivers what the pathway is for Formula 1.”
The hard work, dedication and tangible passion seen over the years from FIA Formula 2 CEO, Bruno Michel, is clearly coming to fruition with the plentitude of polished drivers emerging through the ranks of the feeder series’.
“Stefano, in his new role, working together in partnership with Bruno’s team in bringing Formula 2 and Formula 3 together, clearly showcases to all of the F1 teams, all of these amazing young talents coming through and the abundance of talent that we have coming through the Single-Seater pathway over time.
“The FIA’s Single-Seater pyramid continues to go from strength to strength.”
