F3 to introduce limit downforce to improve racing | Formula 3

The new Formula 1-supporting Formula 3 championship will limit downforce during races to encourage closer action.
Speaking to the FIA’s Auto magazine F3’s technical director Didier Perrin confirmed drivers will only be allowed to use maximum wing angles during practice and qualifying.
“For free practice and qualifying, the drivers can use the full potential of downforce, but for the race we will reduce it by limiting the angle of the rear wing to make sure the braking distance will be slightly longer.”
The series hopes the changes will improve the quality of racing in the championship while ensuring it provides valuable experience for aspiring F1 drivers.
