    Buxton says in his article that drivers intend to sign a petition by Sochi that they won’t race as long as Canamasas is on the grid. Very interesting!

  • craig-o replied to the topic GP2 round 9: Monza in the forum Group logo of GP2GP2 3 weeks ago

    I cannot think of a driver in any category who has caused so many stupid driving infringements in a single race for a very long time… Maldonado at Belgium in 2012 probably comes close but I’m sure that Canamasas went much further here.

    Facu Regalia deserves the spot. I don’t really know if he was sacked from or left Hilmer because of their erratic performance.
    Anyway, Canamasas should take a page out of Cecotto Jr.’s book and learn how to race properly. Grosjean was banned and now look at him, he fought for podiums last year and now he’s pulling off wonders with that car-ish…[Read more]

    The way I look at it, there surely has to be another driver in the single-seater ladder that brings the kind of sponsorship money Canamasas does without the erratic behavior, isn’t there?

    A lot of people seem to forget that Palmer is only a year older than Nasr. I think it’s more a case of perhaps Palmer was put into GP2 at a young age when he wasn’t necessarily ready as oppose to him being in GP2 for too long. Should he win the title then he definitely deserves a chance at Formula One, as should every GP2 Champion have. I think…[Read more]

  • And now GP2 commentator Will Buxton weighs in with some very strong words:

    I do not wish to watch on and commentate the death of a racing driver. And for as long as Sergio Canamasas takes the start of a motor race, I fear that I will have to.

  • Oh they’re just getting started:

  • Enjoying the exchange between Marciello and Canamasas in response to the latter’s idiotic driving yesterday:

  • Interestingly, if we use the F1 points system (no Pole or Fastest Lap points), and only count the ‘F1 race’ (feature), then Vandoorne would now actually be leading the championship on countback – 125 points for both, with 2 wins to 1. He has to be doing FP1s for McLaren next year, replacing Button for 2016. You could say he’s not far off Rosberg,…[Read more]

    I think it’s a bit of a luxury problem that GP2 has; some of their rank went through the field in a few years and managed to prove their worth in F1 quite fast as well. F1 teams like to play it safe, so whenever someone seems like a mega talent, they sign them. F1 teams do seem to view GP2 this way moreso than FR3.5, since Da Costa was given the…[Read more]

    But then Palmer hasn’t been that spectacular lately. Yes he’s quick and consistent, and today’s race was good (aided a lot by others tripping over each other), but he hasn’t won since Monaco. Don’t get me wrong though, I’d love to see him get a shot in F1, I just can’t see it.

  • hunocsi replied to the topic GP2/GP3 Series Round 9: Monza in the forum Group logo of GP2GP2 3 weeks, 3 days ago

    But teams must know that results alone don’t mean anything… Leimer for example wasn’t too spectacular, he was reasonably quick, but didn’t set the world on fire – I think he’s in an ideal place for himself in endurance racing.

  • Jake replied to the topic GP2/GP3 Series Round 9: Monza in the forum Group logo of GP2GP2 3 weeks, 3 days ago

    I agree with both of you. I meant that in my opinion, the F1 teams will view it that he has been in GP2 too long. Look at Valsechi and Leimer. I think that as far as F1 teams are concerned, anyone who doesn’t win, or come close, to the GP2 championship in their first 2 years isn’t good enough for a shot in F1 on talent alone. Obviously when money…[Read more]

    And just because someone isn’t winning everything from a young age, still can become a great, even in this age, when every athlete can get better training than in previous times, can some come forward past the usual/ideal age, like earlier this year in tennis, Wawrinka got mature enough to win his first grand slam at nearly 29 without any…[Read more]

  • Even for a driver with as much tenure as Palmer has, he’s been so consistent AND quick that it really becomes a null issue. It’s not just DAMS either – Richelmi has been nowhere near his pace round-to-round. Palmer likely won’t be a champion like four-year-tenured F3000 driver Damon Hill was, but I’d say he’s more than earned a place in F1 on merit.

  • Jake replied to the topic GP2/GP3 Series Round 9: Monza in the forum Group logo of GP2GP2 3 weeks, 3 days ago

    I never have been impressed with Nasr, and today reinforced my view that he is nothing special. If I was an F1 team manager and could choose one guy from GP2 to drive for me next year it would easily be Stoffel Vandoorne. Unfortunately for Palmer, he’s been in GP2 a little too long.

  • andae23 replied to the topic GP2/GP3 Series Round 9: Monza in the forum Group logo of GP2GP2 3 weeks, 3 days ago

    Pretty much a perfect result for Palmer then, reverse grid pole. Nasr must be kicking himself now..

  • RESULTS

    1. Vandoorne
    2. Pic
    3. Evans
    4. Richelmi
    5. Negrao
    6. Nasr
    7. Sorensen
    8. Palmer
    9. Coletti
    10. Cecotto
    17. Gasly
    RET. Marciello

  • Good I have been waiting for another bomb to throw open this championship. Doesn’t look good for Palmer if he loses the championship despite having once a massive lead.

    Look what it did to Stefano Coletti, he went from being a hero to become a bit of a laughing stock.

    This is the chance for Stoffel to show McLaren they need to get him in F1.

    Go Stoffel!
