Nerea Marti and Irina Sidorkova will be a part of the Formula 3 testing session at Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours on November 9th.


  • Both Marti and Sidorkova are the members of the W Academy.
  • In the 2021 season, they participated in the W Series: Marti finished the season 4th, while Sidorkova was 9th.
  • It has also been confirmed that the Iron Dames project members Maya Weug and Doriane Pin will drive the F3 car at the same venue on November 10th.

The statement:

  • “With this test, we want Nerea and Irina to familiarise themselves with F3, the car, and how we work. It will not be about performance, but about understanding the demands of the category. It will be a first taste of what to expect, as we hope they will progress to our championship in the near future.” the Formula 2 and Formula 3 CEO Bruno Michel said.
  • “W Series exists to create a pathway for female racing drivers as they progress into the upper tiers of motorsport. Today’s announcement that our two youngest drivers, Irina Sidorkova and Nerea Marti, will take part in a full testing day with the FIA Formula 3 Championship, is proof that we are succeeding in that mission,” the W Series CEO Catherine Bond Muir added.
