When everybody though that team and drivers lineups for European Formula 3 was complete, and old friend of the championship came back to competition after Mick Schumacher and Nikita Toitskiy announces. The team will have the former German Formula 4 driver, Julian Hanses.

They left the series in 2013 when they were represented by the german drivers Sven Müller and André Rudersdorf. A part from that, they had drivers better considered for general fans as was the former GP2 driver Stefano Coletti. So, this is a structure that knows pretty well the championship, but it will be interesting t osee what they can do fighting with so consolidated teams like Prema and Carlin.

“We are looking forward to being part of it again”, said Otto Schwadtke, Ma-Con team boss. “We are certainly the underdog of all teams but I am very confident that we will spring a surprise here and there. The whole team is highly motivated and burns for the project.

“I followed his performances last year and was impressed by his approach”, concludes the team boss explaining why they wanted Hanses on the team. The driver is also so excited with the new challenge: “It is a great honour for me to have the chance to compete in one of the most famous junior racing series in the world. Ayrton Senna and Michael Schumacher have already been racing Formula 3 successfully and paved their way for higher tasks. I am aware that this is not going to be an easy task. The competition is strong and many race tracks are new to me.

“I just can’t wait for the season to begin. Currently the team and I are working flat out on our preparations for my Formula 3 debut and I will be happy when we finally will go out for the first tests”, told Hanses.
