The squad 2015
List of the international Motopark driver
The European Formula Three Championship is the most valuable school for future Formula One drivers. It boasts racing on the highest-possible level, with close competition and a high degree of technological challenges.
In 2015, Max Verstappen became the youngest-ever Formula One driver in history. The Dutchman was just 16 years old when booked his ticket to Formula One – in a Formula Three car entered by Team Motopark. In 2014, Verstappen stormed to victory in the prestigious Masters of Formula Three in Zandvoort, his Dallara being entered by Team Motopark.
Following an impressive roll of honour in Germany’s domestic Formula Three Cup, Timo Rumpfkeil’s Team Motopark stepped up into the European Championship in 2015. The pedigree of 66 race wins and nine championship titles on home soil speaks volumes about the team’s capabilities. Sure enough, the first victories and pole positions in the European Championship followed suit in the team’s maiden season.
In Euro F3, the team enters five drivers from five different nations. The cars of choice are Dallara frames with Volkswagen powerplants.
Altogether, 36 drivers from 18 countries battle it out in 33 single heats, spread out over 11 events, supporting the World Endurance Championship (FIA WEC) as well as the DTM and some other high-class acts. The races are show live on n-tv, which is the German equivalent to CNN, followed by 30-minute highlight shows on Eurosport each Tuesday after the race weekend.
Team Motopark enters four young drivers in the 2015 inaugural season of Germany’s national Formula Four series.
With 42 drivers from nine different countries, Formula Four follows the reigns of Germany’s Formula Masters series in which Team Motopark scored more than 30 race wins and multiple championship titles.
The cars are one-make chassis from Tatuus powered by a 160 bhp, turbo charged engine by the famous Italian Abarth brand.
In 2015, there are 24 heats spilt out over eight events. The championships acts as support act for either the DTM, the German Touring Car Masters, or the German GT-Masters. All races are shown live on Sport1, Germany’s leading sports TV station.
