2012 Formula Renault 3.5 Series
Previous: 2011 Next: 2013

The 2012 Formula Renault 3.5 Series was the eighth season of the Renault–supported single–seater category.

It was the first season for the new Dallara T12 chassis, which featured a new, 530 bhp (400 kW) V8 engine supplied by British firm Zytek Motorsport.[1] The car also featured a new gearbox developed by Ricardo and a Drag Reduction System similar to the one first used in the 2011 Formula One season.[1] The series' organising committee has also announced that the series' sporting regulations were set to remain unchanged.[2]

Robin Frijns won the championship in his first season of competition, becoming the first driver (since Robert Kubica in 2005) to win the Formula Renault 3.5 Series in his debut year. Tech 1 Racing won the teams' championship for the fourth time.[3]

Teams and driversEdit

On 10 October 2011, it was announced that 18 teams had applied to compete in the 2012 season.[4] Twelve of the thirteen teams that competed in 2011 submitted entries, while Mofaz Racing withdrew after failing to acquire the requisite funds to continue in the series.[5] Several new teams, including Arden International, Atech Reid GP, DAMS, Koiranen Motorsport, Max Travin Racing Team – however prior the start of the season, Max Travin Racing Team joined forces with BVM Target as part of a three-year partnership[6] – and Van Amersfoort Racing all submitted entries to join the series.[4] The final list of thirteen teams was published on 17 October 2011, with GP2 Series teams Arden International and DAMS selected to join, while EPIC Racing and Koiranen Motorsport were placed on a reserve list.[7]

Race calendar and resultsEdit

In August 2011, series organisers had announced that the championship was due to visit Russia and Brazil during the 2012 season.[2] The 2012 calendar was announced on 10 October 2011, the day after the end of the 2011 season.[54] Russia was included, but Brazil omitted. Seven of the nine rounds will form meetings of the 2012 World Series by Renault season, with additional rounds in support of the Monaco Grand Prix and the 6 Hours of Silverstone.[55]
