Felix Rosenqvist will be given another shot at winning the coveted FIA Formula 3 European Championship title, with the 2013 runner-up having extended his deal with German outfit kfzteile24 Mücke Motorsport for the upcoming season.
Rosenqvist enjoyed a highly successful campaign in 2013, winning ten out of 30 races on his way to second in the final championship standings. The Swede will now embark on his fourth consecutive year of top-flight international F3 racing as the series breaks new ground with more powerful engines and a first visit to Russia.
Felix Rosenqvist: “I’m glad to be getting another year with the guys at Mücke Motorsport; we have some new challenges to look forward to this season. Having said that, and while I genuinely believe the FIA Formula 3 European Championship to be one of the best junior single-seater series in the world, it’s no secret that I’ve been doing F3 for quite a long time and that I’ve been working on alternative plans over the winter. At the end of the day, it just wasn’t possible to progress into GP2 or World Series by Renault, and then I can’t see a better option than staying on in the F3 environment and try to win the title I missed out on last year. That’s my very clear target for 2014, and I’m confident that we’ll be very much in the running. It will be an interesting season with some extra horsepower and new circuits!”
