Drugovich joins VAR for European F3 finale
10 October 2017 – Felipe Drugovich will contest this weekend's European Formula 3 finale at Hockenheim with Van Amersfoort Racing.
Drugovich, 17, placed third in this year's ADAC Formel 4 championship with the Dutch team, taking seven wins.
He will join regular racers Harrison Newey, Joey Mawson and Pedro Piquet at the team.
"During the season Felipe has improved his skills over and over again," said team boss Fritz van Amersfoort.
"He overcame setbacks more than once and kept on being a frontrunner in the German ADAC F4 championship.
"The opportunity did present itself and we think it is a logical next step for Felipe to step up to Formula 3.
"It will be interesting to see how he adapts to the faster speeds and the higher downforce of a Formula 3 car.
"With that being said, we see this event as a first step for Felipe to gain experience at this level before the winter break."
