He may not have won either of the race but for me Romain Grosjean was the star of the GP2 Asia races at Sepang. He stuck his ART car on pole by over three-quarters of a second, before becoming the something-hundredth driver to stall the notoriously flaky Mk 1 GP2 machine. Once he got going … Continue reading Grosjean impresses again in Sepang
Fairuz Fauzy converted pole position into victory in the wet sprint race at Sentul. But he was helped by the fact that so few laps were completed at race speed. Little had apparently been done to correct the numerous embarrassing organisational problems evident in yesterday’s race – cars were left in gravel traps for laps … Continue reading Fauzy wins another shambolic race at Sentul
Just watched the first GP2 Asia race from Sentul – it verged on farce at times but the closing stages were pure drama. Luca Filippi won from Sebastien Buemi, but they were so absorbed on their battle they completed an extra lap, which leaves me wondering if they might be disqualified. The GP2 Asia cars … Continue reading Luca Filippi wins bizarre Sentul GP2 Asia race

Nicolas Lapierre cruised to victory in the GP2 race at Spa-Francorchamps in a manner that made you wonder why he hasn’t been doing it all year.

Adam Carroll underlined the fact that he belongs in single seater racing with his second win since returning to GP2 seven races ago. He triumphed in the sprint race that was interrupted by a frightening crash for Luca Filippi which the Italian fortunately escaped without injury.

Giorgio Pantano became the sixth driver to win in as many races after a fraught encounter at Magny-Cours. The race was stopped after a frightening crash that Ernesto Viso was extraordinarily lucky to escape from. The Venezuelan struck the rear of Michael Ammermuller’s ART car, barrel rolling along a section of barrier and landing on … Continue reading GP2 France feature race: Pantano wins messy race

Timo Glock took the GP2 victory he’s been threatening all year by scorching through to first from eighth at Barcelona. He became the fourth different driver to win in the first four rounds of GP2. Behind him Javier Villa impressively kept pace with the leaders to hold second.
