Riki Christodoulou insists that his impressive debut season in the British F3 International Series has set him up well for whichever series he elects to race in in 2010.
Christodoulou took fifth in the championship standings and was the leading rookie driver in a season which saw him take to the podium on four occasions – including a victory at Snetterton in the second race of the weekend.
As well as winning top rookie honours, Christodoulou was also the second highest placed British driver behind Carlin's Max Chilton.
“My first season in F3 was very good but I feel it should have been better,” he said. “I was fast throughout the season but was involved in accidents, caused by others, too many times which really hurt my championship hopes.
“Scoring my maiden F3 win was the best feeling while the low point was at Spa in Belgium, one of my favourite tracks, where I recorded two non-finishes which was a disaster for my championship aspirations.”
Christodoulou admitted that his debut season had put in a good position should he return to F3 again next season, although such a move is one of a number of options currently being considered.
“If I decide to remain in F3, I will be stronger all round with a year's racing under my belt,” he said. “I know the circuits, the car, the tyres and have been in qualifying and race situations.
“I'm considering a number of different options and opportunities as well as attempting to put the necessary funding in place for 2010.”
