@prisoner-monkeys Mate, sarcasm. He’ll be 25 by the time the season starts too! He’s been plodding about for years looking good at times and invisible at others. He’ll probably do a Maldonado and win the thing through sheer attrition.
@keithcollantine The Lotus line-up is decent, yes, though Calado really needs to stop finishing second. My point is more about the drivers who aren’t going to do GP2 this season: Roberto Mehri, Felipe Nasr, Kevin Magnussen, Kevin Korjus, Valtteri Bottas – that’s quite a list.
For the first two, I know, money is the stumbling black. So the British and Euro F3 champions can’t get a seat in the so-called ‘strongest F1 feeder series’. And what have GP2 done to help drive costs down? Added flyaway races. The field lacks quality in depth and that will, in the long-run, affect F1 too.
