It’s definitely unlucky for Dillmann, but if it allows us to keep Evans in the series for a second year, then I think it is worth it.
On the other hand, Taki is now famous for his humourous tweeting, so I wonder what he would say if someone asked him if Sato constituted a pay-driver..
Marciello vs. Vandoorne – 2014 GP2 will be worth watching. We can expect that others will also get in on the action, should it be the experienced Palmer, Evans, Rossi etc.19th February 2014, 0:09 at 12:09 am #249026
I think Marciello is going to be my second favorite driver this season, after Rossi of course.19th February 2014, 12:17 at 12:17 pm #249055AnonymousInactive
Mitch Evans and Artem Markelov to join Russian Time for 2014
Now I understand why Dillmann has been so down lately.19th February 2014, 15:01 at 3:01 pm #249066
Evans looked decent but showed some first-year flaws, and was a bit held down by mediocre Arden equipment (their prime years of 10 years ago are history). He might very well step up and be a genuine title threat now that he’s with the reigning team champions – people are thinking it’ll be Palmer due to his tenure, or Vandoorne or Marciello due to their raw pace, but don’t overlook Evans especially now that he’s at RT.25th February 2014, 18:15 at 6:15 pm #249827JonParticipant
Haven’t seen Felipe Nasr mentioned in a while, but it looks like despite his new role at Williams as 3rd driver and test driver he wants another season in GP2. I really do hope we see him this season driving for Carlin again and getting some wins.28th February 2014, 17:29 at 5:29 pm #250255Keith CollantineKeymaster

I was worried that GP2 would be severely lacking in Venezuelan Road Rage this year.28th February 2014, 17:49 at 5:49 pm #25026828th February 2014, 17:54 at 5:54 pm #250269andae23Participant
That’s great news! Cecotto is such a talented … I can’t do it, that’s awful news. Sadly because he’s now very experienced, he has a chance of running near the front as well.28th February 2014, 17:57 at 5:57 pm #250272SPParticipant
Well he’s had an equipment downgrade, at least…28th February 2014, 18:17 at 6:17 pm #250275RigiParticipant
hahaha, prime example of someone who PAYS for his seat, that cecotto guy.28th February 2014, 18:50 at 6:50 pm #250286SPParticipant
As do the majority of drivers in European feeder series. The teams simply don’t have that much sponsorship and prize money is uncommon. The usual exception is the top F1 teams’ junior programs (notable proteges include Alex Lynn, Raffaele Marciello, Stoffel Vandoorne and Marco Sorensen).
