Organisers of the prestigious Macau Formula Three Grand Prix have confirmed several of the top drivers that will be competing in the event this year.
While GP2 driver Bruno Senna is the most high-profile name on the list, more drivers have been announced following the confirmation of the Brazilian’s seat with Raikkonen Robertson Racing back in September.
Front-runners from the three major F3 championships in the world will be present, and the grid will definitely feature the champions from Britain and the F3 Euro Series.
British F3 champion Marko Asmer will take part in the event for the third time, while Euro Series title contenders Romain Grosjean and Sebastien Buemi are both confirmed for the event.
Buemi will partner Senna at Raikkonen Robertson though, rather than compete with his regular team Mucke Motorsport.
Oliver Jarvis will represent the Japanese championship, where he has been a front-runner with his Toyota-powered Dallara.
Other names confirmed for the race include Yelmer Buurman and James Jakes for Manor Motorsport, and class rookies Sam Bird and Niall Breen with Carlin Motorsport.
Autosport.com understands that Euro Series front-runners ASM will only take three of their four cars to the race, enabling them to keep one car in Europe for testing purposes.
With Grosjean, Nico Hulkenberg and Kamui Kobayashi all confirmed for the event, Tom Dillman is likely to miss out unless he switches teams.
