Carlin has confirmed that Indian racer Ameya Vaidyanathan will join the team for the remainder of the season, partnering Lando Norris, Jehan Daruvala and Ferdinand Habsburg at the team. Vaidyanathan is currently competing in the EuroFormula Open and will work the two series into his schedule.
"I’m really looking forward to dovetailing my EuroFormula Open commitments with the remainder of the FIA Formula 3 season with Carlin," he said. "The team has been consistently strong this season, and with three fast teammates in Ferdinand, Jehan and Lando, I’m grateful to have such a massive opportunity to learn and improve as the year goes on. The field has proven to be uber-competitive, but I’m determined to contribute to the team’s overall success."
Racing director Trevor Carlin added, "We’re thrilled to welcome Ameya to our Formula 3 team for the rest of the season. He has been a real asset to our EuroFormula Open team and has really impressed us with his dedication, determination and results from the season so far.
"It’s going to be a whole new challenge for him in the FIA Formula 3 European Championship but we know from experience that he will be putting everything in to the upcoming weekend and rest of the season. We look forward to see what he can achieve in the competitive field."
