Swedish-Iranian racer Arvin Esmaeili has been confirmed as the third driver at the Douglas Motorsport team for the 2018 BRDC British F3 Championship.
The 20-year-old joins the series after a promising year in the Formula Masters Asian Series in 2017, where he finished sixth overall with a win at the Zhuhai circuit in China and two podiums at the season opener at Sepang in Malaysia. In his first season in cars, he showed excellent consistency to also score a further 11 top-10 finishes from the 18 races.
Esmaeili enjoyed a strong karting career and in 2015 competed in the Formula Kart Stars series in the Super FKS category in Britain, while also racing in the X30 Challenge in Singapore, where he was a race winner.
He also split his commitments between Britain and Singapore in 2014, racing and winning in the Singapore Karting Championship and a one off appearance in Super One in the UK. His career started in the Singapore Karting Championship in 2013, where he was a podium finisher in his first year.
