Formula Three is a third-tier class of open-wheel formula racing. The various championships held in Europe, Australia, South America and Asia form an important step for many prospective Formula One drivers. It is abbreviated as F3. Formula Three (adopted by the FIA in 1950) evolved from postwar auto racing, with lightweight tube-frame chassis powered by 500 cc motorcycle engines (notably Nortons and JAP speedway). The 500 cc formula originally evolved in 1946 from low-cost “special” racing organized by enthusiasts in Bristol, England, just before the Second World War.
The 2022 FIA Formula 3 Championship is the thirteenth season of Formula 3 racing and the fourth season run under the FIA Formula 3 Championship moniker. The category is run in support of selected rounds of the Formula One. As the championship is a spec series, all teams and drivers that compete in the championship run the same car, the Dallara F3 2019. For the 2022 season, a new chassis was to be introduced, but this change has been halted by the cost-cutting measures. Trident entered the championship as the reigning teams’ champion, having secured their title at the last round of the 2021 season.
