Pipo Derani, a rising star of the FIA World Endurance Championship and winner of this year's 24 Hours of Daytona and 12 Hours of Sebring, reflects on his time in the FIA Formula 3 European Championship and how important it was for his development.

On graduating from the series in 2013, the Brazilian driver made the switch to sports car racing and currently sits third in the FIA WEC LMP2 standings with four podiums from five races. In this video he explores why the FIA F3 Championship is a good environment to hone the skills needed for all forms of top-flight motor sport. 

With a huge number of successful drivers having honed their skills in FIA F3, it is undoubtedly a cornerstone of driver development, and we'll be sharing more insights from former drivers over the coming weeks.
