As the year of 2017 nears to a close, and competitors already start being confirmed for 2018, it is time to consider the top 10 drivers from the GP3 campaign just gone.

With nine different winners from 15 races, 15 standing on the podium, and multiple on-track battles, a fascinating season emerged as ART again dominated the battle for silverware.

The French outfit finished with a record teams’ championship haul of 590 points as the drivers’ honours went to Mercedes Formula 1 junior George Russell.

The year ended with 22 drivers having a combined experience of 431 starts with an average for each of just over 19 races each, as the grid featured 12 new faces. This was the lowest totalled figure at the conclusion of a campaign.
