F3 Euro Series Update…

Stefano Coletti will miss this weekend’s Formula 3 Euro Series race at Brands Hatch after suffering a slight fracture of the sternum via a crash in his latest GP2 outing at Spa.  The 20-year-old driver was battling for a top-ten finish, after starting from pitlane, when he lost the car and impacted the barriers.  The incident occurred with only a few laps remaining.  Coletti is currently participating in a rehab program with hopes of returning later this month for the Barcelona round.  The season concludes October 23-25, 2009 at the Hockenheimring in Germany.

Prema Powerteam signed Tim Sandtler as a replacement for Coletti at this weekend’s event at Brands Hatch.  It was initially reported that the team would be fielding three cars, but I’m assuming they wanted to get a backup driver ready in case Coletti wasn’t able to return. Sandtler has previous experience in Formula BMW, F3 Euro Series, and International Formula Master.
