03.03.2013. Romeo Ferraris will be participating in the 2013 FIA Formula 3 European Championship. The Italian company will install two Dallara 312 powered by Mercedes engines. One car will be driven by 26-year-old Michela Cerruti. As the team is still in negotiations with several drivers the line-up for the second Dallara will be announced at a later date.
Michela Cerruti made her first steps on the motor-racing ladder in karting. Only at the age of 20 she got behind the wheel of a touring-car, later on she also gained experience in single-seater racing while contesting in Spanish Formula 3. 2012 Cerruti raced in F3 Open, before she moved onto German ATS Formula 3 Cup.
“I like to think that I will be competing in a highly competitive championship, full of really fast drivers. There’s nothing I like better than a challenge that seems impossible. My whole career so far has been a series of leaps in the dark, and every year has brought a new and more difficult challenge, and I fully expect this to be the most demanding,” tells Michela Cerruti.
“The decision to create the team was taken only seven weeks ago, so we are very pleased to be able to have our debut for the first race at Monza. The FIA Formula 3 European Championship promises to be the most important new championship in the field of international car racing, thanks to the extraordinary work done by Gerhard Berger and the FIA. For the Romeo Ferraris company, it constitutes a new and demanding challenge, which we will tackle with determination, but knowing also that we have much to learn,” says Team Principle Dario Calzavara.
“I spent most of my career in engine design and in touring car championships, but at my very beginning, I started as mechanic of the Formula Junior of Giancarlo Baghetti, many years ago. When the race will start at Monza will be a great emotion for me, it will be like going back more than sixty years and start from scratch. I know that the FIA Formula 3 is the most competitive championship, not counting Formula 1. When the green light will be on at Monza I know that the 50 titles I won in the past, will not count anything,” says Team Owner Romeo Ferraris.
