Media Accreditation Page for the FIA Formula 2TM Championship (F2) and the FIA Formula 3 ChampionshipTM (F3)
 
F2 and F3 Media passes are only allocated to print, photo and online based publications.
No TV and radio requests can be accredited through this system.
 
All F2 and F3 media accreditation will give access to the F2/F3 paddock and hospitality. No F2 or F3 passes will provide access to the Formula One media centre, paddock or pitlane.
 
Accreditation application deadlines:
 
The accreditation deadline for all test sessions and race weekends is 10 days before the event.
 
Criteria for Accreditation
 
Print, photo and website media accreditation requests need to be filed through this site, and requests are only complete and valid with picture ID. 
Radio and TV need to directly contact the F2 or F3 communications department, via email (media@fiaformula2.com / media@fiaformula3.com).
 
To all Photographers

Photographers are not allowed access around the circuits for photography. The organisers will provide a small selection of photographers with a tabard which will give them access to the F2/F3 sessions. Tabards must be returned after each session. On Race day, a small selection of photographers will be issued with a tabard to give them access to the starting grid/pitlane/podium ceremonies.
 

 
COVERAGE
F2 and F3 will only allocate press accreditation to media outlets intending to publish reports related to the event(s) for which the accreditation has been requested. Press clippings or links must be sent to the communications department following the event for which the accreditation has been requested.
 
QUALITY
The highest standards of fairness and accuracy are expected as a minimum quality requirement from the press. Freelance journalists must apply for credentials via their own agencies. The onus is on the freelance applicant to prove the supply of regular stories to publications, via press clippings or links.
 
For photo accreditation: Photo agencies must be able to prove that the pictures have been regularly sold to publications and have been paid for at the normal commercial rate. A publication must be able to prove that the pictures published are the original work of the publication's accredited photographer.
 
Publications must be on sale to the general public (trade, club or internal company magazines will not be accredited). Publications must also be of a sufficient circulation to warrant allocation of a credential.
 
Web sites applying for accreditation must be able to prove traffic figures, a specific section devoted to the F2 or F3, and a high percentage of unique content and material not available elsewhere.
 
Accreditation requests from journalists/photographers working for a specific team/driver will be denied: only accreditation requests for those covering either F2 or F3 will be considered.
 
DECISIONS
Accreditation decisions are made by the F2 and F3 communications department according to well established and recognised principles and procedures:
  • Respect of the accreditation deadline;
  • Compliance with the requested elements of the procedure (may include formal request on the headed note paper signed by the Publisher or the Editor, sample of the publication, proofs of coverage, signed undertaking, representative's ID photo and press card);
  • Commitment of coverage devoted to the F2 or F3;
  • Match with circulation and/or quality criteria.
 
RACE BY RACE ACCREDITATION
F2 and F3 liaise closely with National Press Offices and National Sporting Authorities to confirm the validity of a given application.
