    @prisoner-monkeys The four years in GP2 is not the only problem Cecotto Jr has…

    I’m aware of Cecotto’s other problems. I was simply pointing out that if Abt takes two years in GP2, then his career probably won’t suffer from it. If, however, he spends four years in GP2, and/or he races with a new team every season, then he’s in trouble.

    I agree with you on that. Although Maldonado and Vd Garde also stayed in GP2 for four years before moving on to F1 (albeit with a bag of money).
