Double F is a former german racing team owned by Florian Fischeder. They withdraw after round 7 of Season 3.

Racing HistoryEdit

Season 1Edit

Monil Santilal and Jethro Walters were signed as drivers for Season 1, engines being supplied by Honda. They started the season in the best way possible, with a double win at the opening round, Santilal leading Walters. Santilal went on to win 3 more times in the next 5 races, being the top contender for the title, while Walters struggled with reliability issues.

2 finishes outside of the points saw Santilal losing out to Oakley, and the lack of results from Walters meant that the team also had to settle for 2nd in the constructors' behind Minardi.

Season 2Edit

Santilal remaind with the team, while Walters was replaced by Matty Smith. Volkswagen was signed as new engine supplier. That turned out to be a bad decision, since they lacked pace compared to the Hondas. Santilal got in the points regularly, Smith however struggled and was replaced by Charrel Jalving after 12 races. The rookie surprised everyone when he won in his 2nd race only, marking the highlight of the season for the team.

They ended the season in 7th place, only just ahead of RaltWest, which had dropped out of the series after 8 races.

Season 3Edit

Reigning world champion John Warrington joined the team coming from Team Shadow, a more than adequate replacement for Santilal, who left the team. The second seat was filled by Christopher Hinz, who had been test driver for Italian English Racing in Season 2.

Despite the promising lineup, the season turned out to be a disaster. The car was everything but competitive, leading Warrington to leave the team after 6 races only. Zsigmond Somogyi was brought in to replace him. Volkswagen discontinued the supply after Warrington left, and the team switched to Petronas-branded Ferrari engines.

Hinz finished 5th in the first race after the switch, but it wasn't enough to stop the fall. Fischeder announced the team's withdrawl to the end of the season, which became an immediate one when Devil Fox Racing owner Byron van het Bolscher offered to take Double F's spot on the grid right after the Dutch Grand Prix.
