The 2015 Formula Renault 3.5 Series season was a multi-event motor racing championship for open wheel, formula racing cars held across Europe. The championship features drivers competing in Formula Renault 3.5 formula race cars that conform to the technical regulations for the championship. The 2015 season is the eleventh and final Formula Renault 3.5 Series season organised by Renault Sport, after it was announced that the organisation would withdraw its backing of the championship at the end of the season.[1]

The season began at Motorland Aragón on 25 April and will finish on 18 October at Circuito de Jerez. The series forms part of the World Series by Renault meetings at seven double header events, with an additional double header event at the Red Bull Ring and a single race at Monaco, in support of the Monaco Grand Prix.

  • After missing the first four rounds of the season, Comtec Racing returned to the championship at the Red Bull Ring with a single car for Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 leader Louis Delétraz.[22]
  • Marlon Stöckinger replaced Meindert van Buuren at Lotus for the Red Bull Ring round after the team cancelled their contract with him. Van Buuren in turn replaced Philo Paz Armand at Pons Racing, who missed the event due to visa issues.[11]

  • Euroformula Open driver Yu Kanamaru replaced Philo Paz Armand at Pons Racing for the Nürburgring round due to continued visa issues for Armand.[25]
  • Pietro Fantin will be replaced at Le Mans by series' returnee André Negrão, who had three consecutive seasons with Draco Racing in 2011-2013.[20]

Team changes[edit]

  • After five seasons in FR3.5, ISR Racing withdrew from the championship to focus on Sports car racing.[53]
  • British team Carlin returned to the championship after withdrawing from the 2014 season.[2]
  • Zeta Corse withdrew from the championship before the opening round after failing to secure fully funded drivers for the season.[54]

Race calendar and results[edit]

The calendar for the 2015 season was announced on 20 October 2014, on the final day of the 2014 season.[55] Seven rounds formed meetings of the 2015 World Series by Renault season, with additional rounds to be held at the Red Bull Ring and at the Monaco Grand Prix. The championship returns to the Red Bull Ring, Silverstone and Le Mans. Monza, Moscow Raceway and Paul Ricard, which all held races in 2014, have been removed from the schedule.

On 11 February 2015, it was announced that the Silverstone round would be moved back a week due to the circuit reacquiring the rights to host the British round of the 2015 MotoGP season.[56]
