Jann Mardenborough will make his debut in the GP2 series at the upcoming race weekend in Monza, replacing Sean Galael in the Carlin team. Sean is performing his duties in the Renault 3.5 series in Silverston, which created a vacant seat for Janna, who otherwise drives for Carlin in the GP3 series. Carlin team boss Trevor Carlin said: "Since Sean is performing his duties in the Renault 3.5 formula, we have decided to give Jann the opportunity to taste the GP2 series car for the first time. Jann is a very talented and fast racer. Unfortunately he has had quite a bit of bad luck this year, which means he has not achieved the results he is otherwise capable of conquering. " Trevor says that this weekend will be mainly educational and informative for Janna. Even the 23-year-old himself says it won’t be easy: “I don’t expect it to be
Alexander Rossi hopes that his progress in the GP2 series will be enough to gain a seat in the Haas team, which will join the Formula 1 field next season. Last weekend in Spa, a racer who gained experience in F1 as a Marussi and Caterham test racer achieved his first win, and in the championship he is in second place behind Stoffel Vanddorn, who has an elusive advantage. Rossi confirmed talks with Haas: "We are talking, but I couldn't say yet that these are advanced talks. They have ten potential drivers and none of us know where they really are. I have my hopes, but at the same time I don't all the eggs in one basket, because I'm looking for other options. In any case, Formula 1 is still the main goal. " The Californian would like to believe that his recent success will help him get closer to the seat
The GP2 racing series of formulas will present the DRS (drag reduction system), which is mounted on the rear wing, in the 2015 season. This is a moving part that allows faster overtaking on some parts of the track, and was first introduced in Formula 1, in the 2011 season. The first tests will begin in October in Europe, on a production car, and later in the Middle East. The reason for this addition lies in Formula 1, as in Formula 1 drivers who previously drove in GP2 compete, so the leaders want to prepare them for a race car that has all these added features that GP2 race car has not had so far. “We’ve always said that we can see amazing racing in GP2 even without the DRS system, or any other device, but if we want to follow our mission of preparing drivers for Formula 1, we need to add
Both Formula One and the GP2 series came into force last year with rules dictating the low noses of race cars. Such a design should, at least theoretically, reduce the likelihood that a car will "climb" on another car in a side-on collision. Due to the low noses, the race cars are considered by many to be uglier, and today's accident of the accompanying GP2 series in Abu Dhabi raised questions about the practical effectiveness of such a form, with a major role played by the low and rounded side of the car. Jon Lancaster and Tom Dillman collided with the front wings of the Lancaster race car jammed behind Dillman's helmet. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJ3EAmqoY8E

The racer of the newly formed Hilmer Motorsport team, Robin Frijns, is the winner of the first race of the GP2 series at the Circuit de Catalunya. The race was marked by many accidents, including the spectacular "flight" of Nathanael Berthon. Felipe Nasr, the Carlin racer, was second, and Jolyon Palmer stepped on the last step. Freins started the race in eighth place, but he performed a great tactic of changing tires, replacing the soft ones with the hard ones in the sixth lap. The racers in front of him opted for a longer first part on a harder mix, but there was real chaos on the track with various tactics. Marcus Ericsson, who started the race in first place and led the first few laps, handed over the leadership of the race to Friens when he collided with Sam Bird. The DAMS racer had to resign. Second-ranked Nasr se
