How rocket O'Sullivan banished painful memories with GB3 glory

After missing out on the 2020 British F4 title in astonishing fashion, Zak O'Sullivan was determined to earn his first car racing title stepping up to the BRDC British F3 championship. While the series underwent a mid-year name change to GB3, the Carlin driver was imperious throughout and deservedly claimed the title in his rookie year

Any young driver with a realistic eye on victory is always going to feel some degree of pressure as they attempt to forge a career up the junior single-seater ladder, but for Zak O’Sullivan the 2021 GB3 Championship had perhaps added significance.

The Briton entered the series – still dubbed BRDC British F3 until an enforced mid-season name change courtesy of a decision by the FIA – having just missed out on the British F4 title at the final race in dramatic circumstances the previous year. It was a bitter pill to swallow and followed another runner-up spot in the 2019 Ginetta Junior standings.
