I wonder how much that Koiranen drive set Jorda back. She was a liability for a backmarker like Ocean, so heaven only knows what she will do for (to?) front-runners like Koiranen.

Well, she must have a lot of backing, we can give that to her. But she’s been the slowest so far of the four girls, Powell fastest, Piria or Gomez second fastest? And from a sexist point of view, maybe she is the hottest? It would be interesting to see what someone who likes guys said was the hottest guy, haha. Maybe Tio Ellinas? Ahh, to have a girlfriend interested in racing. Or even a driver..
I’m surprised Gasly hasn’t got more seat time, unless it has to be bought of course.

I’m very excited to see how Kirchhoffer and Stoneman go. Based in their resumes, I would expect them to be title contenders if they join the grid. Kirchhoffer in particular could do a Bottas/Kvyat and skip GP2 entirely.
Neiderhauser quickest on Day 3, ahead of Rowland and Stoneman.
Kirchhoffer in particular could do a Bottas/Kvyat and skip GP2 entirely.
Could well be. The German is a Motopark protege and therefore, has close links to Russian Time, and Williams. It’s possible he could do a Bottas..
South African driver Roman de Beer will drive for Trident in 2014. He becomes only the second GP3 driver to be confirmed for the upcoming season after Alex Lynn, who will be driving for Carlin. Link here.
Arden have announced that Robert Visoiu and Patric Niederhauser will drive for them in 2014. The third seat is expected to go Jann Mardenborough. Here’s a link
Former Indy Lights driver Victor Carbone joins Trident for the upcoming GP3 season. Link here.
@wsrgo he used to be my student (I’m a high school teacher) and I’m really looking forward to seeing him at Spa this year. He has had some success in junior series in the US, but not enough to show for in Indy Lights to get into the CART series. Good thing, since I hope he makes it in Europe, where he really wanted to compete. With a team like Trident, any success will really stand out.
Hoping he has a great season!
Yes, very cool!
Carbone was significantly better on ovals than road courses, it’ll be interesting to see how he does in GP3.
