What's happening this weekend?

I'm glad you asked!

With no F1 action the main focus this weekend is on the Formula Renault 3.5 Championship where Sahara Force India reserve driver Jules Bianchi competes.

Jules is one of the favourites for the title but he had a dismal opening weekend in Spain, scoring no points. However he got his title quest back on track during round two at Monaco, picking up 18points for 2nd place. Round three is held this weekend at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium. There are two races as part of round three, one on the 2nd and one on the 3rd. Of course the aim for Jules will be at least one race win, it would be his first of the season!

The only other action this weekend from our point of view is in the Indy Lights championship where Armaan Ebrahim will be taking part in round five of his rookie season. The Indian driver will be racing at the temporary Belle Isle street circuit in Detroit, Michigan. Armaan currently sits 11th in the championship, but due to the high-scoring nature of the series; his result this weekend could see him move upto 5th, or down to 15th - it's still all to play for!
