A few big names have fallen into place on the GP2 grid. Nicholas Latifi returns for another year at DAMS and will by joined by Oliver Rowland who’s finally got a team worthy of his potential.
And Honda’s Nobuharu Matsushita gets a third season at ART.
GP2 becomes F2 next season!
But I only count two non-European rounds – Bahrain and Abu Dhabi. All the others are in Europe so they could have just had another flyaway for three total?
The furthest away of those I can see is Baku, but that must be in Europe because it hosted the European Grand Prix last year!
