American Santino Ferrucci joins British F3 field for Brands Hatch

American Santino Ferrucci has joined the grid for this weekend's British Formula 3 Championship round at the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit.

He will line up in a Fortec Motorsport Dallara-Mercedes, alongside championship leader Matt Rao and runner-up Martin Cao.

Ferrucci has focused on the Formula 3 European Championship this season, but missed the opening rounds as he was not old enough - he celebrated his 16th birthday at the end of May.

Since then he has taken a best European result of fourth with EuroInternational, and a best of second in a limited German F3 Cup campaign.

Fortec team manager Dan Mitchell said: "We really wanted to get a driver from the European championship into it to see how our guys compare. He'll be a good benchmark."

Ferrucci will not drive the Fortec machine until the half-hour free-practice session on Saturday morning.

Rao and Cao are both hoping they can contest the final two European F3 rounds - at Imola and Hockenheim in October - with Fortec, while Cao has entered the Macau Grand Prix with the team.
