Alfa Romeo Racing Formula 1 test driver and BWT Arden Formula 2 racer Tatiana Calderón joins the Formula 3 Asian Championship with Mexican outfit Seven GP, ahead of the 2020 racing season.
The 26-year old racer has had three years of experience from 2013 to 2015, racing in Formula 3 with Double R Racing, Jo Zeller Racing and Carlin in the now-defunct FIA Formula 3 European Championship, which was one of the support series of the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM).
In 2013, Calderón was consistently running in the top five throughout the entire Cooper Tires British Formula 3 International Series, and would end up taking her one and only podium finish of the season at the Nürburgring in the final race weekend of the season.
The 2014 season, where her car was prepared by Mücke Motorsport, who have worked with the likes of both Lucas Auer and Felix Rosenqvist, saw Tatiana take nine top ten finishes over the course of the 33-race calendar, securing them at Spa-Francorchamps, Norisring, Moscow Raceway, Red Bull Ring, Imola and Hockenheim.
Ahead of the new season, Seven GP’s team principal and former racing driver Picho Toledano welcomed the Bogota-born driver and sponsor Escuderia Telmex to the team:
“Tatiana has always shown passion and perseverance throughout her career and that’s exactly the soul of Seven GP, we are more than delighted and proud to be part of her 2020 season prep.
“Again, I want to thank Tatiana, Tatiana’s team, Fernando and Escuderia Telmex for believing in our F3 Asian programme.”
The 2020 Formula 3 Asian Championship will kick off at Sepang Circuit, Malaysia as the support bill of FIM Endurance World Championship’s Sepang 8 Hours and FIA WTCR Race of Malaysia events on 13th to 15th December. The championship will use the winter format to enable drivers from all over the world to maximise FIA Super Licence regulations which allow them to accumulate points from two championships within a single year.
