GP3/13 car development underway

The GP3 Series has set up camp at Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona this week in order to start working on the design and solutions of the second generation car which will be introduced in 2013. At the wheel of the development car was 2011 Champion Valtteri Bottas freshly back from his first GP2 test in Jerez. The Finnish ace helped GP3 in developing the car as did previous Champion Esteban Gutierrez last year.

2011 GP3 SeriesTM Champion Valtteri Bottas: “I am very happy to work on the development aspects of a car. It is a new approach for me. During this session, my opinion really mattered as GP3 is a car entirely based on the driver’s training. The aim is to design the best possible car that will enable a young driver to showcase his skills and prove that he is the best.

“We have worked on tyre development with Pirelli as well and already found some solutions that make the car all the more difficult and fun to drive. I think GP3 is headed towards some great and interesting improvements."
