According to the F3 Euro Series Starting Grid; there are several changes to announce.

Stephane Richelmi will be making his F3 Euro Series debut driving for Team Epsilon Sport; also making their series debut. Both Epsilon and Richelmi have experience with the Renault 2.0 cars. Look for the duo to make their first appearance at Barcelona with a Dallara chassis/Mercedes powerplant.

Daniel Ricciardo will be making a guest appearance, driving for SG Formula, courtesy of Red Bull.

Peter Elkmann will be replacing Martin Plowman at RC Motorsport. The 27 year old brings a ton of experience to RC Motorsport, so it will be good to see him back in a race car. It will be interesting to see if he can help RC sort out some of their gremlins. He won an F3 Euro Series race in 2006, driving for Jo Zellar…. Unfortunately, funding issues caused him to sit out most of the season and focus on his karting efforts in the European Superkart Championship.

Brendon Hartley, British F3 hotshoe, will make his return to the F3 Euro series. Hartely will be pitted under a familiar tent in the paddock; Carlin Racing.

Richard Phillipe will replace Tom Dillmann, driving for SG Formula. Dillmann had been running for Jo Zeller Racing.
