Aleshin to race in German F3

Reigning Formula Renault 3.5 champion Mikhail Aleshin will participate in this year's German Formula 3 series. The Moscow driver will race Russian team Stromos Artline's Arttech F24 Mercedes

Aleshin to race in German F3

Aleshin competed in the Oschersleben final with the team last year, and has agreed to continue in a development driver role. The 23-year-old has recently encountered sponsorship problems that have put a question mark over his expected Carlin GP2 deal.

"At the moment it is not 100 per cent guaranteed that I can compete in the GP2 championship," said Aleshin, "but I am working hard on it. I had some problems with one of my key sponsors during the Asia series. I was pretty surprised after the results we had last year.

"The problem is it is very late. It is one of those situations in life that you cannot make a prognosis for, but we keep working. The F24 drive is free, for development work. I'd like to thank the team for giving me the job. I am sure it will not harm my main career. I will continue working to work towards the GP2 budget, and I am also in Moscow University for the next two months finishing an International Management degree."

Stromos Artline won the 2010 ATS Formula 3 Trophy, for older cars, with German Riccardo Brutschin. Alongside running its own design for Aleshin, the team will step up to this year's ATS Formula 3 Cup with a more recent Dallara F307 for Estonia's Antti Rammo.
