Tatiana Calderon switches to Jenzer for 2018 GP3 season

Sauber Formula 1 development driver Tatiana Calderon will remain in the GP3 Series for a third successive season in 2018 with Jenzer Motorsport

Jenzer, which won races with Arjun Maini and Alessio Lorandi last year, is the third different team Calderon will have raced for in the F1-supporting series, after she made her debut with Arden in 2016 and then switched to DAMS last year.

With DAMS exiting the championship for 2018, she tested with Jenzer - which had also run her in a '16 winter test - and ART Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi post-season.

"I'm excited to join Jenzer because I had a really good feeling both years I tested with them," Calderon told Autosport.

"The opportunity came around and they were very successful last year - third in the teams' championship and both drivers winning races shows what they can do.

"Of course coming back to GP3, I want to show I have improved and really make another step in the right direction like I did last year with both qualifying and race pace.

"For sure I want to be scoring more than just points this year."

Calderon was 18th in GP3 last season, and also took a podium finish on a Formula V8 3.5 one-off in Bahrain.

She is the first driver Jenzer has announced for the new season, although Juan Manuel Correa is thought to have agreed a deal to join the team full-time after his part-campaign in 2017.

Formula 3 convert David Beckmann is also in line for a Jenzer seat in what would be his first GP3 season.

Calderon joins a growing list of drivers sticking with GP3 for 2018, with Ryan Tveter recently announcing he would stay put at Trident and Julien Falchero moving from Campos to Arden for his second year.

ART Grand Prix: Callum Ilott, Anthoine Hubert, Nikita Mazepin, Jake Hughes
