Somewhat inevitably, GP3 will follow the lead set by GP2 in adding F1-style proximity-based DRS to its cars in 2017.
We introduced a new car in GP3 this year and it has given us 100% satisfaction in terms of reliability so we decided to add another layer to the drivers’ apprenticeship with the addition of DRS in order to prepare them for GP2. O…
