Kimball Ends Season with Final Win

New World Series by Renault Champion Robert Kubica will enter the Macau F3 Grand Prix with Carlin Motorsport

Kimball Ends Season with Final Win

The Polish driver, who wrapped up the World Series by Renault tile at Estoril earlier this month will compete in the one-off meeting with the British team.

Kubica was on pole for the race last year in a one-off outing for Manor Motorsport and will join the team's British F3 runners Christian Bakkerud and Charlie Kimball in the event next month.

Other British F3 regulars to compete in the event include Bruno Senna, who finished second in the Formula Renault race at the Chinese street track last season, and Promatecme's Steven Kane.

Danny Watts, who has competed in both the British and F3 European series this season, will drive in the race for the third time, again with backing from the Noble Group.

Lewis Hamilton leads the F3 Euroseries entries and will start as favourite in his ASM machine following his dominant 2005 season.

Sebastian Vettel will partner Hamilton at ASM, instead of regular pilot Adrian Sutil. Manor Motorsport will bring their two regular drivers Lucas di Grassi and Paul di Resta, who will remain with the Mercedes-powered team for the Macau showpiece.

The Japanese F3 runners will be lead by Champion Joao Paulo de Oliveira. The Brazilian's Tom's Dallara-Toyota teammate Kazuki Nakajima will also be there.

Brazilian Fabio Carbone will drive the developing SLC chassis entered by Signature.
