FRECA | Preview: Another Great Racing Show at Paul Ricard?

The fourth meeting of the season for Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine rounds out an intense month of May. In the last thirty days, FRECA have visited Barcelona, Monte Carlo and is moving now to Le Castellet. This is what happened during the week.

With Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine coming to the Circuit Paul Ricard in Le Castellet, France, there were a couple of drivers’ announcements preceding the weekend. First, G4's Belén García (SPA) is set to be back once more after a two-race contract. The Spanish women is set to compete in the W Series (Formula 3 championship made of women only) this year.

She had agreed such a short contract with G4 in order to get prepared for her racing season in the W Series. Now – thanks to some changes in the W Series’ calendar – she and G4 agreed to race yet again together at Paul Ricard this weekend.

This is what she had to say on her comeback: “I am so happy to be back in this championship and to be able to race once more before the start of the W Series, because after the two meetings of Barcelona I still feel like I am missing that point to make a step and to improve all round to be prepared for the W Series’ season”.

The second announcement is then regarding JD Motorsport and the Russian Michael Belov. He had made a few appearances both in Formula Renault Eurocup and in FIA Formula 3 last year and now he is making his season debut in FRECA, as the third driver for the Italian team.

This French weekend does look like a nice one indeed, with the two French drivers racing at home this weekend – R-ace’s Isack Hadjar & Hadrien David – both putting on a good start to the season. They are respectively P3 and P6 in the standings, with Hadjar achieving one win in Monaco and David achieving two podiums up until now.

Then - as we already saw in Euroformula Open - Formula 3 cars are able to put on a better show compared to Formula 1, in which overtakes are made too easy by the usage of the DRS (Drag-Reduction System). In Euroformula Open instead, we saw more chances for the drivers to fight and defend their places, which created a much longer-lasting spectacle.
