The feeder series season is really ramping up and a lot of championship will be decided in the coming weeks. We invited Euroformula Open championship leader Oliver Goethe and W Series race winner Marta Garcia to make sense of it all.

It’s been a roller coaster of a season for Oliver Goethe. The Danish-German competing under a Monegask license, started 2022 in FRAC as a preparation for the season ahead. And while it didn’t prove all too successful, the 17-year-old has been dominating Euroformula Open with Team Motopark. It led to him replacing the injured Hunter Yeany at Campos in FIA F3 at the Hungaroring and Spa, where he just missed out on a maiden podium with 4th in the Feature Race.
While only just 22 years old, Marta Garcia has been on the feeder series ladder for quite a while. After a few years in Spanish F4 in her home country, she moved on to W Series in 2019. In the inaugural year of the all-female feeder series, she recorded a win and 4th in the championship. The Spanish driver had a year on the sidelines in 202 and returned to W Series in 2021 to finish 12th in the championship, bagging a podium at Spa. This year she hasn’t graced the podium yet, but has improved on her previous year, sitting 8th in the standings.
