List of the international Motopark driver

FIA Formel 3

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 four drivers from four different nations. The cars of choice are Dallara frames with Volkswagen powerplants.

Altogether, 22 drivers from 14 countries battle it out in 30 single heats, spread out over 10 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.
