Formula Renault 3.5

The 2013 Formula Renault 3.5 Series season began at the start of this month at Monza, where Stoffel Vandoorne (Fortec Motorsports) and Antonio Felix da Costa (Arden Caterham) won the opening two races of the campaign.

Much is expected of the Belgian and the Portuguese, though they are not the only men to keep an eye on as the championship unfolds. Victory might have eluded Kevin Magnussen (DAMS) in Italy, but the Dane did manage to pick up some vital points with two second places, while McLaren Young Driver Programme member Arthur Pic (AV Formula), Christopher Zanella (ISR), Oliver Webb (Fortec Motorsports), Norman Nato (DAMS) and Mihai Marinescu (Zeta Corse) all scored in both races at Monza.

For others, Motorland Aragon will provide an early chance to make up for a disappointing opening weekend. Former Formula Renault 3.5 Series champion Mikhail Aleshin (Tech 1 Racing) has a point to prove in Spain, as do Daniil Move, Lucas Foresti (SMP Racing by Comtec), Sergey Sirotkin (ISR), Nicolay Martsenko (Pons Racing), André Negrão (International Draco Racing), Will Stevens (P1 by Strakka Racing) and Marco Sørensen (Lotus).

The 26 drivers will get their first taste of the track in a three-hour collective testing session on Thursday afternoon.
