We hand the reigns over to PREMA Racing driver Arthur Leclerc who crafts a brand-new addition to the Formula 3 calendar. Choosing everything from the country, to the celebrity that he would invite, the Ferrari junior creates a new race weekend.
WHERE WOULD THE RACE BE HELD?
“It would be held in Monaco because I was born there - that’s an easy decision. I would love to race in Monaco myself. I have watched all of the races there since I was young and it is a dream of mine to drive there in a car at some moment in my life.”
HOW WOULD THE TRACK BE LAID OUT?
“I would keep the track in the same place, but with my own layout. I would have Raidillon and Eau Rouge from Spa and La Rascasse from the actual Monaco circuit. La Rascasse is a really tricky corner, I have done it in the simulator and I can tell you, it’s not an easy one.
“The first sector of Barcelona is great for high speeds, so I will include that as well. It would be a really small track, but a tricky one.
“It terms of what you see when you are driving around, I would try and keep as many of the famous parts of the Monaco circuit as possible.”
DAY OR NIGHT?
“Night is pretty cool. I have never done a night race. I drove in the night once in Abu Dhabi for a test, but I have never raced in the night, I think it would be really cool with the lights on.”
DRY OR WET?
“A wet race. I enjoy driving in the wet, I have done since I was young because I feel really confident in the wet. Last year in Mugello I won the three races there and they were all wet, so that is maybe why I like it so much.”
WHICH CELEBRITY WOULD YOU INVITE TO THE RACE?
“My brother, Charles, does he count?”
