Remco Vengeance: "F3 will be my final season I race in"

Remco Vengeance has started his final ever season on PSGL. The Dutchman who is about to compete in it's 16th season says he has no more spare time to compete in the league races and therefor will retire at the end of the season.



The Dutch 5 time champion revealed this at the end of the pre season race at Austria where after a good start in the wet he eventually DNF'd.

"It's simple. I don't have any spare time on my hands anymore. My working shifts are very inconsistant which means I can't plan a proper race each week. I can already see the eyes of my boss when I tell him: Yo, I gotta have ever sunday off because I have to play a videogame at 9 PM."

This means that the well known name of Remco Vengeance from Season 22 onwards will no longer be on any of the starting grids. There are already plans for a Testimonial race at the end of the season to celebrate Remco's career.

As for the future, will we see the Dutch driver stay on with the community perhaps go back to commentary? We will probably find out towards the end of the season.

F3 Mid-Season Review

We go into the mid-season break with one of the closest championship standings seen in F3 in many seasons. 10 drivers separated by a win and 7 drivers separated by just 5 points. With 7 races left on the calendar no one can predict what way the championship will swing. In case you missed any of the F3 season so far, here's a round up of all the drivers highs and lows of season 21.




Despite not having a driver in the top 2 of the drivers championship, Ferrari are the ones who've declared their dominance in the constructors championship. With their drivers Aleskiller and Matt claiming 4 out 8 podiums, including a win in China from Aleskiller, they'll be the team to beat after the break. However with both drivers sitting on 26 points each, 2 points off the lead, could there be friction between the 2 as they both fight for the championship?



One side of the garage has had a much easier start to the season than the other at Toro Rosso. The joint championship leader ThiccRogue had a dominant start to the season, winning the pre-season race before going on to win the opening round in Australia and taking second in China a race later. Recent races haven't been as successful unfortunately with 2 consecutive DNF's, the championship favourite goes into the break under threat from numerous drivers. Its been a start to forget for the Toro Rosso teammate of Ross. Despite showing strong pace in the race and consistently being in the top 10, He's finds himself at the bottom of the table, failing to finish a single race. 



Much the same as their sister team, one side of the Red Bull garage has been a lot more successful that the other. After being promoted to F3 after the pre-season race, Jaychitects has done nothing but back up the decision to promote him after scoring in all 4 races, including a win in Canada, Jay now shares the top spot in the championship with ThiccRogue matching him on 28 points. The second Red Bull driver Remco having only been able to start 1 of the 4 races looked to return with a strong performance however after setting an invalid lap in qualifying he'd be disqualified post race.



The Haas team has been a one man army so far with Groenejisbeer picking up 100% of the points for the team. Despite not stepping on the podium so far this season, Groenejisbeer finds himself in P5 in the championship just 2 points off the lead and the third driver to be on 26 points. His teammate Amd will be hoping to reset during the break having only finished 1 of the 4 races. Having shown very strong pace he'll be hoping to convert that come the second half of the season.



Sauber is 1 of just 2 teams in the top half of the table to have both drivers score points. The consistency of Paudie looks to have paid off earning him 7th in the championship and 5 points off the lead. Parkway on the other hand has only 2 points to him name with 3 DNF's. After showing his pace in pre-season he'll be hoping to gain some consistency and points in the second half of the season.  



McLaren have had, what some would consider a surprise start to the season. FTRL_Panda sits P9 having score in 3 of the 4 races so far including his best performance being a podium finish in Britain.  His teammate Chopper has also shown good pace as well with 2 8th place finishes from starting 3 races. With both drivers showing potential, we could see some surprise results from them near the end of the season. 



Despite Bugatti winning at Britain this season, Force India find themselves in P7 in the constructors. The Force India drivers have got off to a rough start this season. With both Bugatti and Adventures struggling to find some momentum. However an opportunistic win from Bugatti does in fact bring him into the title fight being just 11 points away from the lead. Adventures has been picking up a few points throughout the season but we've seen in previous seasons he does have the pace to be fighting for podium places.



Like most of the teams, Mercedes has been a tale of two fortunes this season. Boogster has been showing great pace picking up 2 5th place finishes in Australia and Canada and a PSGL best of 2nd in Britain after one of the best drives on the season from 14th on the grid. This form sees him place 5th in the standings, 4 points off the lead. Wee_Rhys on the other hand hasn't been struggling with pace but with finishing races. As a previous F3 race winner he's proven to have the pace and will be hoping to fight back in France.
 


The Renault team is one of two teams to see a driver change in the opening half of the season. After a very troublesome first 2 races which saw both Ontothepodium and FTRL_Aaron fail to score, Aaron left the team and league. Going into Britain the vacant seat would be filled by the previous F3 runner up, Jraybay. Renault would go on to score their first points with both drivers scoring in Britain. However Ontothepodium would go on to claim a shock 2nd place in Canada, 1.8 seconds off his first F3 win. The result would see him leapfrog to 10th in the championship, within a win of the lead.



Finally we have Williams and the second team to see a change to their driver lineup. After being the only team to have both drivers score points in round 1, Yarhamm has been the lone driver at Williams from round 2 on-wards. Despite this he managed a 5th place finish in China to take Williams total to 15 points. With the former reserve driver Tomkiller taking the empty Williams seat from France, the 2 will be looking to catapult Williams up the order.
