    The FIA F3 European Championship’s sophomore season continues at the Nurburgring. The championship leader currently is Italian 18-year-old Raffaele Marciello, member of the Ferrari Driver Academy, racing for Prema Powerteam, with Mucke Motorsport’s Felix Rosenqvist hot on his heels in 2nd. The momentum is with the Swede, having won four out of the last six races, and finishing 2nd in the other 2. Like most other rounds, F3 this weekend acts as a support series for the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters.

    After this round, there will still be three rounds left, at Zandvoort, Vallelunga and Hockenheim.

    I am! But I think most people will be a little bored or apprehended to really follow F3 these days with GP3 being much closer to F1. I used to follow F3 a lot more closely back when I used to go to Zandvoort for the Masters, too. (I think I’ve seen a fair share of the rookies who entered F1 after 2000 on Zandvoort actually.)

    But @wsrgo, how on earth did Marciello have such a dominant weekend? I know he is (very) good and all, but I don’t think he’s put in a performance like this weekend before; fastest in all sessions and winning all races. The Scuderia ought to be looking for a good GP3 or GP2 team for next year and better not sign a replacement for Alonso until Marciello makes it to F1.

    @npf1 He’s done 2 seasons in F3 and I hink he’s ready for a step upwards to the direct feeder level. I personally think he’ll fare better in Formula Renault 3.5, because that series rewards pace and general talent more than GP2… 2 years in that series, coupled with Friday sessions with a Ferrari-powered team should make him F1-ready. He’s also equalled Hamilton’s record in 16 wins in European F3/F3 Euroseries..

    As for the other thing, I’m sorry, I considered the silent observation to be a state of total ignoring..should’ve though better..:P

    @wsrgo I always see your posts, but I don’t follow F3 much and there is nothing to comment on. ;)

    Yeah, @sigman1998, I realised as much when you commented on the British F3 thread last week…:)

    Well, I guess comments could be made on the possible future steps of these guys..like @npf1 did with Marciello…
