I had the same thought and contacted F2 directly. I did get a response and they have considered this but are unable to do it.
The only reason they cant is that in Monaco qualifying, they split the cars into 2 sessions. They run even numbers in 1 and odd numbers in the other. The system is quite inflexible so wouldn’t allow any other way of d…[Read more]

With Anthoine Hubert’s number taken out of circulation I say this moment would have been good to introduce them to F2. The end of previous year was exception but generally team-mates use consecutive numbers and at that moment #18 has also been taken out since previous team uses 16 and 17 which would mean next two available numbers are 18 and…[Read more]

It would be nice if they could have career numbers but I think going as far as F3 wouldn’t be practical with 99 numbers and drivers dropping out and new ones joining from other series.
I just read some other article about the old A1 GP cars being used in South Africa this year, and got to thinking about the lifetime of old racing cars.
Some cars naturally hold value and have a fantastic and active retirement, like most F1 cars. Buy anything from GP2 down is fair game to a crusher unless collected I’m guessing.
So I wonder…[Read more]

On the strength of the first two races I think we have to say it was.
Campos has confirmed Luca Ghiotto’s team mate will be ex-Formula V8 3.5 driver Roy Nissany, son of one-time Minardi practice session driver Chanoch Nissany.
Trident has also confirmed its drivers will be Haas junior duo Santino Ferrucci and Arjun Maini.
And Ralph Boschung will race for MP. So with one week until the first race of the season,…[Read more]

An impressive first season in the Formula 1 feeder category, saw the Swiss driver collect three points finishes, before…
Arden has announced Maximilian Gunther, who was third in F3 last year, has joined its team. Here’s how the line-up looks now:
Nyck de Vries
Sergio Sette Camara
Markelov may have had more than his share of chances by now, but he actually reminds me a lot of Kobayashi with some of his brilliant overtakes. I really think he would shine given a chance at F1. Kind of surprising he hasn’t been offered a test yet as obviously he’s somewhat well funded.
