Formula 3 winter test postponed for now

The Formula 3 winter test scheduled for late February has been postponed. Due to Spain's strict coronavirus measures, it is not possible for British teams and drivers to enter the country.

British unable to enter Spain

Formula 3 was due to kick off the 2021 season on 25 and 26 February with a two-day winter test at Jerez de la Frontera. However, the championship has announced on its website that these tests have been postponed.

The Spanish Health Ministry has imposed a travel ban which makes it impossible for British teams and drivers to enter the country. This ban is valid at least until March 2nd.

No new date announced yet

Formula 3 currently has two teams operating from the UK, Carlin and Hitech Grand Prix. The only British drivers contracted for 2021 are Oli Caldwell and Jonny Edgar. A new date is being considered and will be announced at a later date.
