GP2 alters Feature Race tyre rules for 2014
14 February 2014 – GP2 drivers will be forced to use both the Soft and Hard slick tyre compounds during Feature Races this season, adding a greater strategic element to events and bringing the championship more in line with Formula 1.
Last year, it was mandatory for drivers to make one pit-stop during Saturday's races. But this year both slick compounds, pre-determined from the four specifications of Super Soft, Soft, Medium and Hard, must be used.
Organisers have also announced an extension to practice session times. As opposed to the 30 minute slot previously in place, drivers will now have 45 minutes to get accustomed to the circuit ahead of qualifying.
