    It’s definitely unlucky for Dillmann, but if it allows us to keep Evans in the series for a second year, then I think it is worth it.

    On the other hand, Taki is now famous for his humourous tweeting, so I wonder what he would say if someone asked him if Sato constituted a pay-driver..

    Marciello vs. Vandoorne – 2014 GP2 will be worth watching. We can expect that others will also get in on the action, should it be the experienced Palmer, Evans, Rossi etc.

    I think Marciello is going to be my second favorite driver this season, after Rossi of course.

    Mitch Evans and Artem Markelov to join Russian Time for 2014

    Now I understand why Dillmann has been so down lately.

    Evans looked decent but showed some first-year flaws, and was a bit held down by mediocre Arden equipment (their prime years of 10 years ago are history). He might very well step up and be a genuine title threat now that he’s with the reigning team champions – people are thinking it’ll be Palmer due to his tenure, or Vandoorne or Marciello due to their raw pace, but don’t overlook Evans especially now that he’s at RT.

    Haven’t seen Felipe Nasr mentioned in a while, but it looks like despite his new role at Williams as 3rd driver and test driver he wants another season in GP2. I really do hope we see him this season driving for Carlin again and getting some wins.

    I was worried that GP2 would be severely lacking in Venezuelan Road Rage this year.

    That’s great news! Cecotto is such a talented … I can’t do it, that’s awful news. Sadly because he’s now very experienced, he has a chance of running near the front as well.

    Well he’s had an equipment downgrade, at least…

    As do the majority of drivers in European feeder series. The teams simply don’t have that much sponsorship and prize money is uncommon. The usual exception is the top F1 teams’ junior programs (notable proteges include Alex Lynn, Raffaele Marciello, Stoffel Vandoorne and Marco Sorensen).
