Dallara F3 2025 FIA Formula 3 2025-2030 all-new car discussion

Post

FIA Formula 3 Championship 2024 season will be final season for Dallara F3 2019 chassis car which has been required since 2019 season and from 2025 season onwards all new FIA Formula 3 Championship car will be used until 2030 and thus Dallara F3 2019 will expected to retire after this season (if no subject to change). Dallara will expected to remain in FIA Formula 3 Championship until 2030.

I expect the design of Dallara F3 2025 car will be majorly based on Formula 1 2022 aerodynamics generational.

Your opinions?

This Dallara Mecachrome F3/GP3 combo since 2016 has been very successful. Both cars have been fairly reliable, surprisingly fast and provided some entertaining battles.
I expect the new car will mostly be an evolution of the current one, with the latest safety updates and an aero generally looking closer to the current F1 aero as you say. It will also retain DRS.
But they will have to stay clear of too much complexity to keep costs reasonable.

If the new F2 car is anything to go by, I think this will be a mild evolution. Same powertrain, aerodynamic tweaks, and safety improvements. Specifically, I expect the odd-looking semicircular rear wing setup of the F2 car and "continuous" front wings with the mainplane blending into the endplate. The current car is pretty decent so I doubt there will be a big change.

Depressingly - I suspect it will be a fatter, less agile vehicle and as sterile as mild cheddar cheese.

Current F3 is already poor

Watched Indy NXT the other day...they were basic, but you could see they had a surfeit of power over grip

That doesn't seem very helpful to prepare for F1? :?:

Classic Formula 3 only had 200hp with the small air restrictor, they always had more grip than power, and this taught important techniques (momentum?) and this proved to be a very valuable category.

Even the most powerful non-shifter go-karts the juniors come up through also have more grip than power, no? If these drivers wanted to learn sprintcar racing with 900hp and no grip, they would come up through dirt sprintcars, no?
