If he does well then maybe Tommy will keep him in the seat for longer to give him a chance at the championship, I guess we'll wait and see, whilst Dinella can just get experience.
I highly doubt Swerts will fight for the championship. Not because he's not good enough (although Souto Maior, Zimmer, Melrose, Nurminen, Carlisle and Lamberigts have all won test races and Swerts hasn't), but because at some point he will do too many F2 races to be eligible for F3 anymore. I think I worked out before that best case scenario is he misses Surfers.
Are you sure? The rules state that excluding non-championship races, Swerts is allowed up to nine starts in the F2RWRS. He's already done one in 2014, and he is scheduled to do 8 in 2015, and I made sure that he drove in the F2RWRS either when it's got the F3RWRS as a support race or when there are no F3RWRS races clashing with the F2RWRS race, and as far as I know, Surfers clashes with the USA round in the F2RWRS, while the USA round in F3RWRS clashes with the F2RWRS South African GP...
I might not have counted right, and I didn't actually see your schedule
Although I spoke with Wizzie and we made sure that Surfers won't clash with anything this year. As for the Round of the US, that'll be the same weekend as the F1RWRS US GP, so that's up to Wizzie to figure out.
Remind me when Aerond publishes a draft calendar for the F1 to make a calendar with all three categories at once, to make stuff like this easier. I'll make a page on the wiki for it
