Champs' sons set for Macau

The sons of three consecutive Formula 1 world champions have been confirmed for this year's Macau Formula 3 Grand Prix, which takes place around the challenging street circuit on November 21

Champs' sons set for Macau

Nelson Piquet's son and British F3 champion Nelson Angelo, Keke Rosberg's son Nico and Alan Jones' son Christian have all confirmed their entry for the end of season spectacular - where they will go up against champions from the Japanese (Ronnie Quintarelli) and F3 Euroseries (Jamie Green).

British F3 star James Rossiter has secured a front-running drive with the French Signature racing team - replacing last year's winner Nicolas Lapierre. British F3 runner-up Adam Carroll will return to Menu Motorsport, with his regular team P1 Motorsport not attending the race, while Danny Watts rejoins Hitech Racing.

This year's Macau Grand Prix features a new format, with a 10-lap qualification race taking place on Saturday ahead of a 15-lap feature race on Sunday. A driver who does not finish the first event will still be able to win the grand prix outright.
