We already have Formula 3 (Various National championships, & the F3 Euroseries), Formula Master, Formula Palmer, Formula Renault (all very similar), so how does this additional 'one make' championship fill a gap. This only dilutes an already extremely over-crowded area of racing.

It's great that spectators attending the Europena GP's will get to see an extra race, but surely this could have been Formula 3, as in the past.

The FIA do not have ultimate control over F3, but they do with this new championship, & they also do with Formula 2 (mainly on the WTCC bill). This is all very controlling, & dare I say 'anal'.

Surely motor sport would flourish if there was a championship that could support a few GP's, but which had an open manufacturer/engine formula, & that was a logical stepping stone up the racing ladder. This would not only encourage the drivers & teams, but also the engine suppliers & chassis manufacturers & thus produce a broader engineering base across Europe (sounds like Formula 3!!!).

What we have instead, is a 'closed shop', with one manufacturer & one engine supplier getting a lucrative deal via friends of friends in the FIA.

The result of all this will be stagnation & lack of interest in motor sport.

Why is Formula 1 so popular? One reason is beacuse there are many different manufacturers of chassis & engines.

So, why can't the powers that be adopt this approach for the championships that lead up to Grand Prix racing?

Vested interests perhaps?
