Roy Nissany has taken the final place on the grid for the 2020 Formula 2 season. The Williams test driver has joined Marino Sato at Trident.

[f1tv2020testa]The 25-year-old is returning to the championship he previously contested in 2018 with Campos. He scored a single points finish with tenth place in the feature race at Spa-Francorchamps.

“It is with great satisfaction that we announce the agreement with Roy Nissany, a highly experienced driver,” said Trident team manager Giacomo Ricci.

“I am sure that, within team Trident, Roy will have the opportunity to grow up during the season and fight for the points zone. He made a positive impression in testing at Abu Dhabi, and our technical staff will give their one hundred per cent to help him deliver a convincing season.”

      Eventually, I like this. Maybe, instead of thinking of sport as the realm of ultra-pros, we could think it a reflexion of real-life. In the eighties and nineties it was this way. We had the top drivers, the midfields and the the amateurish drivers and teams. We could have drivers like Andrea de Cesaris, having endless accidents year after year. We could have Arnoux dragging himself, and a ton of hopeless drivers at the pre-qualifying hell.

      Maybe it’s good with keep having the Strolls, the Lafitis and the Nissanys, so that we could relate with those days.

      1. Sometimes it’s best to leave the past in the past.

          I totally agree. I feel quite disappointed to see Lance Stroll sticking to the F1 grid into a 4th season. But what can we do? They are not going away anytime soon.

          If Nikita Mazepin ever gets an F1 seat, I’m really considering stop watching altogether.

          1. He’s not that bad, actually.

              Nissany, Stroll or Mazepin?

    2. Deletraz… has some skills, better than his F1 reject father… Nissany… next gen F2 reject…
      if Pietro Fittipaldi gets a midseason seat… that would be 6 F1 surnames of yore on a grid at the same time

      Shaping up to be a great F2 season this year.
      Markelov back full-time for a 27th season.
      Will the Ticktum/Schumacher rivalry reignite?
      How will rookies Shwartzman and Armstrong compare to sophomore Mick? If I was a betting man, I’d go for Robert to take a rookie title.
      It’s a shame Juri Vips isn’t in the field for a proper class of 2020. I don’t know why Red Bull shipped him off to Japan

    5. This is probably the worst field in gp2/f2 history. Who is the favorite to win?

      Entry into F2 should be performance based, not half the field being ride buyers.

      1. It’s one of the better grids

      Grid looks good..

    7. I disagree, think it’s better than last year. Of the top guys last year we’ve lost champion de Vries, Latifi who went to F1, King, Sette Camara and obviously Hubert (RIP).

      I expect more of the rookies this time out.
