Tatiana Calderon has joined Arden International as she steps into GP3 after three years in the European Formula 3 championship.
Tatiana Calderon has joined Arden International as she steps into GP3 after three years in the European Formula 3 championship.

The Colombian driver suffered a frustrating 2015 after failing to score a single point in her third Euro F3 campaign but after finishing runner-up in the MRF Series over the winter, Calderon is relishing a fresh start in GP3 as she becomes the first female to race for Arden in its 19-year history.

“I'm really excited to be joining Arden for the 2016 GP3 Series,” Calderon said. “It's another step forward in my career. I know it's going to be a challenging first year in the series but I know I'm in the right place surrounded by the right people to learn and make the most out of this amazing opportunity.

“Arden has been very successful in GP3. They know what it takes to be fighting up the front so I can't wait to start working with them towards that goal.”

Arden International general manager has welcomed the 22-year-old with open arms to the Banbury-based team after being impressed by her pace during the post-season test at Abu Dhabi last November.

“It's great to have Tatiana racing with us this season,” Rouse said. “She participated in the GP3 tests in Abu Dhabi and seemed to adapt to the GP3 car really well and set some very competitive lap times on performance runs. Coming off the back of a strong run to 2nd place in the MRF series over the winter, I' m sure her confidence will be high and it will be good to try and keep that momentum going.”

Calderon becomes the third name on Arden International's GP3 driver line-up alongside fellow Euro F3 gradate Jake Dennis and Formula Renault 2.0 ALPS and Eurocup champion Jack Aitken, with a fourth driver expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
