While Charles has still a few races yet to go in the Formula 1 Grand Prix season – not so for Arthur who competes in the FIA ​​F3 championship where in 2021 there was a major change in format. There were three races per meeting instead of two in order to reduce the number of weekends. The calendar therefore included seven races against nine in 2020.
