Jack Doohan secures his third win of the season, claiming the vice-champion title as Trident wins the team’s championship for the first time with 6 points lead ahead of Prema.
The two Trident drivers heated the battle as Jack Doohan, and Clement Novalak started a fight to claim first place, with a dramatic switch on taking the lead during the final moments of Race 3.
The Australian driver insisted on leading the race, despite his engineer telling him to let his teammate pass without fighting. At the same time, Novalak got under pressure from Frederik Vesti, who continued to hunt the Frenchman to be in charge of P2.
Novalak falls back into the clutches of Vesti and finishes third on the podium with some points to add for the team’s championship, dismissing the chances of winning his first-ever F3 win.
Charouz Racing’s Logan Sargeant completed the last race of the Russian Grand-Prix in fourth ahead of the FIA F3 youngest winner Jak Crawford in fifth for Hitech with HWA Racelab’s Johnathan Hoggard in sixth.
Arthur Leclerc tried to keep Prema’s team championship points alive in seventh as the newly crowned champion, Dennis Hauger, got into contact with HWA Racelab’s Oliver Rasmussen, sending the young Norwegian driver spinning across the track.
Victor Martins made it to eighth for MP Motorsport, standing in fifth place from the championship views with 16 points behind Clement Novalak, who occupies third place, making him the only rookie in the top spot.
Hitech’s Ayumu Iwasa closed the season’s final race in ninth, with Prema Racing’s Olli Caldwell grabbing the final points from the race in tenth.
The FIA Formula 3 will be back next year, with lots of exciting news to announce in the upcoming season, and we’ll keep you updated with the latest news from the series.
