Formula Two – Significant Progress made towards GP2 morphing into the final step of the FIA Single Seater Ladder

FIA Formula 2 Championship

Significant progress has been made in negotiations with the promoter of GP2 regarding the establishment of the final step in the FIA’s single-seater ladder; the FIA Formula 2 Championship.

Discussions remain ongoing with the intention of finalising an agreement.

Full Press Release

Opinion: In amongst the F1 2016 calendar confirmation the FIA have publicly commented for the first time on progress around the progress of GP2 morphing into F2.  GP2 organisers have commented on the prospect but in recent months talks appeared to have stalled. It’s fantastic to see logic being applied to the development of the FIA single seater ladder. It will be interesting to see the timing around the transition and the FIA drivers license points requirements to enter the series.

  1. I’m hoping they bill this as a division 2 rather than the strongest junior series. There are far more excellent drivers than F1 seats and they should have a credible open wheel series.
    I hope they bring the costs under control.
