List of German Formula Three champions

This page contains a list of German Formula Three champions. The championship has been in existence intermittently since 1950[1] and has some former champions who later made Formula One. The most notable among these are seven-times world champion Michael Schumacher,[2] 2004 Monaco Grand Prix winner Jarno Trulli and multiple podium finisher Nick Heidfeld. Nine-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Tom Kristensen and 2005 DTM champion Gary Paffett also won the series early in their respective careers.
