The record books will show that Kaylen Frederick was the star of the season on his way to victory in the 2020 BRDC British Formula 3 Championship. The American, returning with Carlin for his sophomore season in the category, claimed more wins (nine), poles (eight) and fastest laps (12) than any other driver. Perhaps the most startling statistic of all is that he led 120 laps, while the next best was his main title rival Kush Maini, with just 36.
Yet as Frederick lined up on pole for the 24th and final race of the season at Silverstone, he still needed to finish the race to be sure of the title. He duly did that with an emphatic drive and victory, but the fact that the title went down to the dying moments of the campaign, despite his seeming dominance, belied the ups and downs of a turbulent 2020.
