Marinescu confirms place on F2 grid
12 April 2011 – Romanian racer Mihai Marinescu has announced that he will be competing in Formula 2 for a second year, with a top three finish in the championship firmly in his sights. The 22-year-old graduated to F2 at the start of 2010 after a year competing in Formula Renault 3.5. After a double points finish during the opening round at Silverstone, Marinescu went on to finish the season in 11th place with 68 points to his name.
Formula 2 Series Director Jonathan Palmer added: "It’s really great to have Mihai back for 2011. He showed great promise last year and given his impressive run in pre-season testing I’m sure he will be a strong contender for podiums, and maybe even race wins, starting from Silverstone this weekend."
