ART Grand Prix have the chance to claim their sixth GP3 Teams’ Championship crown in seven years in Monza this weekend.
All the team have to do to claim the crown is to outscore Trident by 16 points in the first race at the Italian track. They have already claimed pole through Charles Leclerc and gained four points for the position.
A maximum of 64 points can be obtained through the feature race with pole position (four points), win (25 points), second place (18 points), third place (15 points) and fastest lap (two points).
The total of 39 points can also be obtained through the sprint race with the win (15 points), second place (12 points), third place (10 points) and the fastest lap (two points). A fastest lap can only be claimed by a driver if they finish in the top ten.
The team currently lead the Italian team by 254 points after qualifying for the Italian round of the 2016 series.
An unbelievable thing is thinking about what the lead could have been if the rules allowed the team to score points for all of their four drivers. ART have used Charles Leclerc, Alex Albon, Nirei Fukuzumi and Nyck de Vries in their cars in 2016, but the series’ dictates that only their top three drivers at each round can score points.
They have consistently scored highly throughout the year, with just one round where they only scored in single figures of points. The team only claimed five points in the Belgian sprint race with sixth for Leclerc and eighth for de Vries.
Their biggest scores came in the Austrian feature race where they got 64 points with Leclerc claiming pole, win and fastest lap and Albon and de Vries completing the podium.
