Arjun Maini completes the Van Amersfoort Racing line-up for the upcoming FIA Formula 3 European Championship season.

The young Indian driver finished runner-up in last year's British Formula 4 championship and will recommence his battle with eventual 2014 champion George Russell, who is also graduating into Euro F3 with Carlin.

“I'm proud of making my FIA Formula 3 European Championship debut for such an experienced team as Van Amersfoort Racing,” the 17-year-old said. “I hope I will be able to learn a lot from them.”

Maini finished runner-up in the Indian JK Tyre Racing series in 2013 before stepping into British Formula 4 last season. Earlier this year the Indian driver competed in the New Zealand Toyota Racing Series, notching up two victories to finish fourth in the championship.

In 2011 the youngster won the 'One from a Billion hunt', a competition run by the Force India Formula 1 Team to find India's next motorsport star.

“We are happy to have another young, greedy talent racing for our team,” said team principal Frits van Amersfoort. “In the off-season tests he thrilled us with his natural speed and in the Toyota Racing Series, he once again confirmed this impression by securing five podiums.”

Maini joins Charles Leclerc and Alessio Lorandi at Van Amersfoort Racing for the upcoming EURO F3 season.
