Just a thought, now that the F1 race in Bahrain has been cancelled/postponed, i take it that means the GP2 Asia series will just end now as surely they won’t prolong it until later in the season, so does that mean Jules Bianchi is the two race champion?
I said that and congratulated Jules a few days ago on Twitter.
I question the integrity of a continental-wide championship that consists of only three times two lots of races in only two countries in the first place. The two tracks are only a couple of hundred miles apart as it goes.
It’s like holding two races at Thruxton, one at Croft, and calling the winner The Champion of Europe, even though the Thruxton races were cancelled because they hadn’t cut the grass.
If you’re going to have an Asian version of the 2nd most important single seater series in the world, at least have it spread across the whole of Asia, and have at least 10 rounds (rounds, not individual races)
Since the teams are basically the same anyhow, it would make more sense if they would just combine the GP2 Asia and main series and have it be a more comprehensive series with support at most F1 races… As it was this year, turned out to be a bit of a joke.
@Icthyes I would love it if GP2 came to Melbourne. The support races at the Grand Prix are rather unexciting. When the F1 sessions end, the ‘V8 Supercars’ come out and there’s around 200 people left at the circuit. I am sure everyone would want to watch GP2 if it were there, given how exciting their races are.
The problem with GP2 Asia is that it’s very expensive to fly everything out to every race. Back when GP2 Asia went to Indonesia and Malaysia and China, the teams were probably spending more than they did on a standard GP2 Series season.
