Haas confirms their drivers, They SIGNED FRISO?
Today, the unexpected happend, Frisostolk_ better know as the bottlejob has signed a contract with Haas F1 team together with his former teammate Cheater-cheater. As Cheater-cheater (former F4 champion) cleary has prove himself that he has the pace to compete in f3 Friso clearly didn't prove himself. After a great start in Australian where he took pole and was heading to score his first win in F3 all things went wrong. Friso crashed two meters before the line and couldn't redeem himself later this season.
There were many rumours that he would get fired by Ferrari and it didn't happen. Haas (also known as the junior team of Ferrari) have gotten both Ferrari their former drivers. The question is why they've decided to let Cheater-cheater go to Haas. He finished P4 in the driver championship and seemed to found his place with Ferrari.
Fortunately we managed to get both drivers for a short interview.


Interview with Friso

Q: How did you get resigned in Formula 3 after scoring no points?


As you know I was heading to win the Australian Grandprix, after such a disappointment I couldn't get myself together to find that pace again. I've told it directly with Ferrari and we made an agreement. I can't go in details about that agreement but I was quite happy with it.

Q: After such a disappointment season last time what are you goals for comming season?
A: The problem is I have two options I'm 1 second off my pace with assists but in the long run that gap only will decrease but that means I have to fight really hard for points. I need to talk to the team and my teammate about it and make a choice.
Q: How do you feel about Cheater as your teammate once again?
It's great to have cheater back, we're good friends. I've let him down previous season but I'm sure I can make it up to him this season. We gave each other very much respect both in Belgium as in Hungary were we thought about each others pace and let each other through if he had faster pace. Besides that we can have a good chat after the race.

Interview with cheater

Q: How do you like the new Haas car?

The car looked good last season. Very consistent during the early races.
How do you feel about Friso being your teammate again and is he going to change?
I'm happy to be teaming up again with my old adversary. I know last season has spurred him on to rediscover his form of old.
What are your goals for this season?
I'm looking to avoid incidents this season. Hopefully I can then go on to score some more podiums and really challenge for the title.

BREAKING NEWS: Scuderia Ferrari signs larsGaming123



Big news coming from the Maranello team as they confirm larsGaming123 will be driving for them in the new season of F3.
larsGaming123 will be driving with @XxWee_Rhys_xX  as his teammate. Ferrari confirmed their line up will be driving in the SF70-h for this season. "The SF70-h features some interesting details which hopefully will give our drivers opportunities to fight for wins" said Maurizio Arrivabene


Ferrari SF70-H - The F3 2017 era S3 challenger

larsGaming123 will be returning to F3 after 2,5 seasons which he spent in F4. It is the return of larsGaming123 to the Ferrari team. He made his PSGL debut in a Ferrari F6 car and managed to get 3rd in the championship and 4th in the constructors championship after getting @Timmeh_15  as his teammate in the middle of the season, he still got dropped by Ferrari because they wanted to give other driver the opportunity. He got into the Red Bull Junior program and moved up into F3, but Helmut Marko wasn't happy with the way how he was performing and dropped him out of the program after only 3 races! Then he was a free agent and Renault Sport F1 picked him up to give him a chance in F4, he ended that season in F4 with 44 points, but he left the team already after that season because he had some arguments with dr.Abiteboul. The season after that he went to Force India to form a complete Dutch line up with @frisostolk_  . They performed really good and even secured the F4 constructors championship. New cars were introduced for this season and Friso and Lars could get used to these new cars pretty fast. They even secured a few front row lockout's that season. Last season he was in F4 with Toro Rosso where he was teammates with @ijsimo . They managed to finish 2nd in the constructors championship. They could've finished 1st if they didn't got caught up in some incidents and crashed when in a good position. They managed to get some pole positions and some podium finishes. larsGaming123 finished 3rd in the championship. meanwhile Ferrari was searching for a new driver line up after @Cheater-Cheater  and  @frisostolk_    only scored 75 points. Ferrari saw how larsGaming123 was performing in F4 and they informed if Lars was interested to come drive for them in F3. He agreed and now he's here once again.

We also managed to get a little interview with Lars about his move to Ferrari.
SKY: How happy are you to move up to F3 with Ferrari?
Lars: I'm really happy to finally return to the team after spending 3 seasons with other teams. Ferrari is the biggest team on the grid so it's great to be able to drive for them once again. I'm really grateful for the chances that Red Bull, Renault, Force India and Toro Rosso gave me to stay in the sport and now i'm finally back here. I'm trying to give everything i have to don't disappoint the fans.

SKY: What are your expectations for this season?
Lars: I wan't to try to score points in every race and maybe try to win a race. That's the only thing i didn't archieve yet, but i'm sure it will happen soon.

SKY: Who is your biggest rival for this season?
Lars: That has to be @frisostolk_  . If he can race without retiring after 5 laps i'm sure we'll have some great battles during this season
F1 2016: F6 3rd place | F4 10th place
F1 2017:F4 S1 6th place | F4 S2 3th place | Constructors champion F4 S1 | Constructors 2nd place F4 S2

"HE'S DONE A MASSA"

The former Williams driver Ontothepodium looked set to retire at the end of last season. He went into the Japanese GP stating "Whether I crash or not I'm finishing my last race". He finished the GP in 7th after battles with numerous drivers as well as leading the race at one point. In his post race interview he said, "This was by far my most enjoyable races of the season. Battling my teammate for most of it but also Chullo and Cheater." At no point mentioning his retirement.

After the Japanese GP, when asked by his fellow driver the FlyingFrome "Are you sure you want to go?" the response was less than convincing. A few days later it was announced Ontothepodium and ChulloCookie would be teaming up at Toro Rosso for F3 season 3. When asked about his indecisive behaviour Ontothepodium replied "I've always seen Felipe Massa as an inspiration." He followed that up with, "Can we all pretend I never said anything?"

With the two new Toro Rosso drivers finishing the previous season in 7th and 8th in the standings and with 85 points between them, they'll be hoping to continue both their good forms off the back of last season.

"Cautiously optimistic" says Haas bound Cheater.


New Haas drivers Cheater and Friso have jumped ship from Ferrari for season three.


We're now a week into the month long break and the F3 grid is finally taking shape. Drivers have been moved up, the teams have been shuffled and now the only thing left to do is get those first laps registered. With Season Three of the PSGL F3 Championship beckoning, we managed to catch up with the former F4 champion, Cheater-Cheater.

"Yeah, it's quite the wait between the two seasons, isn't it? I'm itching to get back onto the track and really see what this Haas car can do. It looked solid last season, I'm really hoping we're able to continue that good form. I certainly think we've got the sort of lineup that can get some strong results.

Cheater is of course referring to himself and teammate of last season, Friso.

"Don't let last season fool you, Friso is as good as anyone on his day. You only have to look back to season one of the F4 Championship to see that. Some of his qualifying runs were absolutely phenomenal. I know he's eager to bounce back and prove himself to the current crop of racers on the grid.

When asked about what seems like a strange move for both drivers to make, he was very open on the subject.

"Look, it was a number of factors that led to this move. Friso obviously had a difficult time last season. I can't say much about his situation or agreement with Ferrari, but I know they were quite intent on keeping him within their ranks in one form or another. I quite like Friso, we've got a great amount of respect for one another. I was only happy to keep this partnership going. This move also takes a little bit of pressure off myself. I adore the prancing horse but I feel more comfortable flying under the radar, something that's a little difficult in racing red!"

Haas had a mid season shakeup during season two, something Cheater was keen to acknowledge.

"They had an interesting year, didn't they? They lost a driver who popped up in a championship rival's car. I know Gunther pretty well from our season together during the 2016 era and I know he'll be looking to tighten the ship. I have complete faith in his ability to gather his chips and play a strong hand."

Haas Team Principal Gunther Steiner(r) seen with Maurizio Arrivabene(l).

"I can't say much about this current project between us, Haas and Ferrari. Lets just say there's a good deal that will please all parties and sets up a positive plan for the future. We can't think about it too much though, we have to focus on Australia and optimising the car for that race. I know Friso and myself will push to develop this car as much as we can. Hopefully we can get a strong start Down Under. We'll have a better understanding of the pecking order after round one and then we'll see where we are. Until then, I'm going to kick back and enjoy the sun."

How will the Haas duo cope with the new look grid? You can catch all of the F3 action on Sunday 13th April at 8pm.
