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).
“The continuation of the Williams F1 test for the 2011 Formula 2 Champion is a huge benefit, particularly as it takes place over a full day during the coveted F1 rookie tests,” says F2 Chief Executive Jonathan Palmer.
“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.”
