Formula 3 Euro Series

The Formula 3 Euro Series was a European-based junior single seater formula for Formula Three chassis, launched in 2003 as a merger of the French Formula Three Championship and German Formula Three Championship. The Formula Three category, including this championship, is part of the established career ladder up which European drivers progress to the Formula One world championship, the highest form of single seater racing defined by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile, motorsport's world governing body. 5-time Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton, won the Euro Series drivers' title in 2005. EuroSeries champions Paul di Resta, Romain Grosjean and Nico Hülkenberg have driven in Formula 1. Other Formula One drivers who raced in the series include 4-time world champion Sebastian Vettel, Adrian Sutil, Kamui Kobayashi and Nico Rosberg. In 2012, the FIA announced that the series would be discontinued and incorporated into the FIA Formula 3 European Championship in 2013; the concept of a European Formula Three Championship dates back to 1975, with a five-race series known as the F3 European Cup.

Races were held at Monaco, the Nürburgring in Germany, Anderstorp in Sweden, Monza in Italy and Croix-en-Ternois in France. The series title was won by Australian Larry Perkins driving a Ralt-Ford run by Team Cowangie. In 1976, the Cup evolved into a full-scale, ten-round European F3 Championship, which ran until 1984. Among its champions were notable future Formula One drivers, such as Riccardo Patrese Alain Prost, the late Michele Alboreto; the modern-day Formula 3 Euro Series was inaugurated in 2003 in a collaboration between two of Europe's national governing bodies for motorsport – the Fédération Française du Sport Automobile in France and the Deutscher Motor Sport Bund in Germany. The new partnership between the FFSA and DMSB spelled the end of national Formula Three in France with the closure of the French Formula Three Championship, but Germany's national championship was supplanted by the creation of the Recaro Formel 3 Cup, though the DMSB attempted to block its creation; this lower-status series was formed by ADAC, the F3V and a few key German teams that chose not to participate in the new Euro Series.

BSR's owner Bertram Schäfer acts as the series' promoter. The FFSA and DMSB hold joint responsibility for determining the sporting regulations of the Euro Series; the organisation and promotion of the championship is handled by ITR, which performs the same role for the DTM touring car championship. The championship consists of ten events, each comprising two races, held at a variety of European circuits. 50–60% of these events occur at circuits in Germany, while the other events are held in various countries, including Great Britain, the Netherlands, Italy and Spain. Most rounds are shared with the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters. Notable venues have included Le Mans in France. From 2004 onwards, the Masters of Formula 3, held at Zandvoort in the Netherlands, was included as a round of the championship. In 2005, the series visited Monaco as a Grand Prix support event, the first Formula Three event at Monaco since 1997; this famous motor-racing venue has long-standing associations with Formula Three.

The FFSA and DMSB created the new championship around the FIA-sanctioned F3 formula of multiple chassis builders and production-based 4-cylinder 2-litre engines with control supplies of tyres and fuel. As in most F3 championships, the Italian company Dallara is the dominant chassis supplier, it was planned to restrict entry to two-car teams, but this requirement was relaxed. In most Formula Three championships and single-car entries are common; some Formula Three championships, such as the British Formula Three Championship, use a two-tier system to provide an opportunity for low-budget teams and drivers to compete with out-dated chassis specifications. In an effort to minimise costs, Formula Three chassis regulations permit major updates only periodically, with annual updates restricted to minor improvements; when the Euro Series was launched, restrictions were placed on the teams' choice of chassis specification by opting not to create a lower-tier championship class, all entrants used the two most recent available specifications.

There is a rookie classification system with a Rookie of the Year title for drivers who have not competed in this championship. The Drivers' Trophy was introduced in 2006 to provide a classification system and class title for drivers using chassis of between two and four years old. Eligibility for this "B class" was restricted to drivers who were not more than 22 years old at the start of the season; this class is no longer in use in 2007. In 2006, testing was restricted to a maximum of 10 days per driver/car, with no testing at race venues, Consequently and drivers have to make the most of the test sessions during race weekends, reduced from 90 to 60 minutes in 2005. Tyre usage is restricted to three sets per car for the entire race weekend. There is no limit on the use of wet-weather tyres, but only when they are deemed necessary by race officials; as is the case with most racing disciplines outside Formula One, tyre warming devices are not permitted. An unauthorised engine change during the course of a race weekend invokes a ten-place penalty on the starting grid.

Each race weekend begins on Friday, with one 60-minute practice session and a qualifying session that decides the starting grid for the first
