I’m surprised that PS4 is on the GP2 car then.. a cheaper sponsorship?
@jb001 And now Mazepa’s drivers may struggle to secure their rides after his death. I think a lot of them relied on him for the funding for their seats. I know both Bernstorff and Dillmann have had accounts at iRacing (think, cheap man’s simulator time).
Seeing how Kvyat dominated at Monza in GP3, at the moment he’s the closest thing they have got to a Vettel replacement. Ricciardo replaces Webber, Vergne Alguersuari, da Costa Liuzzi, Sainz Jr Buemi.
@andae23 – I think you are jumping to conclusions. Losing the government backing us a blow, but it does not completely kill Cecotto’s chances. Look at Mitch Evans – his entire career is funded by one man, somebody Giltrap.
Japanese driver Kimiya Sato will partner Arthur Pic in Campos for the upcoming GP2 season. The 24-year-old finished 3rd in German F3 in 2012 and was a runner-up in the Auto GP World Series season last year. He also participated in the Young Drivers’ Test at Silverstone, for Sauber. Link here
Interestingly, he is managed by Taki Inoue.
A week ago Taki was trashing GP2, GP3 and FR3.5 for being filled with talentless pay-drivers (which in the case of FR3.5 and GP3, was rubbish). Wonder what he thinks of GP2’s talent level now that his driver is in the series?
Also wow, Russian Time 1 and done in GP2/3. That really sucks.
