F2 adds GP2 tests to championship prizes
13 December 2010 – MotorSport Vision, organisers of the Formula 2 championship, have announced that GP2 tests will be handed out to those drivers finishing second and third in the series from next season onwards to accompany a Formula 1 test drive for the Champion.
This year has seen title winner Dean Stoneman test F1 machinery for Williams plus runner-up Jolyon Palmer making a similar Abu Dhabi outing in a GP2 car (pictured above).
“Williams are the perfect partner for F2 and they really provide the best opportunity possible for our championship winner.
“With GP2 being a well proven route to F1, we believe it’s important to award GP2 tests for second and third placed drivers to reinforce our seriousness about F2 providing the most cost-effective path towards F1.”
