As part of the promotion of the new Formula 3 Euro Series, which gets underway at Hockenheim at the end of this month, the French and Germans will be fighting over a Nations Cup and DTM drivers Jean Alesi and Frank Biela have been named as "team captains" for the rival factions in the new series, which combines the national F3 championships of the team countries. Their job will be to advise young drivers on how best to develop their careers.

The Formula 3 Euro Series will be supporting the DTM at a number of races this year.

"It is important that the young drivers come and see me," says Jean, "so that I can help them with my experience. They have to do the driving themselves but they can do that pretty well already."
