Riccardo Agostini has left the FIA European Formula 3 Championship with immediate effect to seek a new yet-to-be-announced challenge. The Italian had been racing for EuroInternational but had only scored one point in nine races in 2014.
In 2013 he raced sporadically, running the first four events of the Auto GP World Series with MP Motorsport, before a one-off appearance for Zeta Corse in the Formula Renault 3.5 Series.
Agostini joined the European Formula 3 Championship at the beginning of 2014, but now he and his management team have agreed to part with EuroInternational where he had a best finish of tenth in race three at Hockenheim. They aim to focus on a new challenge to get the Italian the exposure he needs to rise up the ranks in motorsport.
20-year-old Agostini is hoping to get his career back on track after the disappointing start to this season. The 2012 Italian Formula Three champion is aiming to get back to winning races sooner rather than later.
Agostini is scheduled to return to drive a Formula 3 car for the Macau F3 event in November, but for now his Formula 3 season is over. His absence, complete with the absence of the injured Ed Jones, means the field is reduced to 25 cars for this weekends round in Hungary.
