For the past three years, a British driver has won the F3 Euro Series title. The similarities don't end at nationality though, as all three won with the French ASM squad, and they were all associated with Mercedes-Benz in some way.
However, one of these three bucked the trend and did not step into a DTM car for the following season. While he had a lot of respect for the tin-top series, Lewis Hamilton had a different agenda, and he has since caused quite a stir in the Formula One paddock.
But Jamie Green and Paul di Resta, the men who won the title before and after Hamilton, did join the German-based series, and this year di Resta has been making Hamilton-like waves in the DTM paddock with a couple of startling performances.
