PREMA Racing’s Oscar Piastri was crowned the 2020 FIA Formula 3 Champion. Ahead of the campaign, the COVID-19 pandemic brought a halt to all sporting events and forced the organisers to come up with a strategy that ensured we could go racing in 2020, when it was safe to do so.
This resulted in a season like no other, comprising of 11 weeks and nine rounds of remarkable racing and non-stop drama at seven different venues. The season saw a total of nine different drivers and six different teams take victory, with 15 of the 30-strong grid getting to stand on the podium at least once.
PREMA Racing dominated the Teams’ Championship, finishing an astonishing 209 points ahead of Trident, but the Drivers’ Championship was tantalizingly tight and went to the wire. Heading into the final round, six different drivers were mathematically in the running, but in the end, it was Piastri who clinched the title, with two wins and four podiums.
Next up is two lots of pre-season testing, first in Barcelona on October 5-6, followed by Jerez on October 27-28.
