I'm sorry but there is no way that car/driver combo is that much beter than the field. No way. Prema are onto.something that the others do not have. Or have not found yet.

Why is it so hard to believe? To be honest, it's Leclerc that seems to be making the difference - Fuoco is nowhere, and Gasly and Giovinazzi weren't that far ahead last year.

Hmmm thought it was a little cheeky of him to diss Nato for something he is usually much more robust at!

Thought the same. That's racing drivers for you!

The body language of the car is different to the others for a start. I feel that in a series where the cars/ tyres are supposed to be the same it isn't possible for a driver to make such a huge difference. The Prema cars were often far ahead last year as well..

I am not saying there is cheating going on but that they have found something that works that the others have not. It was a similar story with ART before and a couple of other teams.

I do believe Leclerc is a super driver however. I am in no doubt.

Yes good to see Rowland finally have the officials take a look at his driving, after forcing King clean off the track and then the same to Markelov. If Markelov had spun and gone into the wall, that's race ban aggression imo. Then the safety car restart, that's definitely not within the required 10 car lengths so should be another penalty coming. But he'll probably get away since he's a title contender. Amazing start though, he got that car perfect off the line. You can't say Rowland isn't trying to win this title.

He's a very fast driver, but yes as you mentioned cds, Rowland should be easily beating Latifi, but he's not. Latifi easily won race 2 while Rowland really struggled. Latifi struggled a lot more in race 1 but he did have a lot more traffic so I think struggled keeping the tyre life. The DAMS car must be the second best car out there, with the RT not far behind.

That other Prema though, Fuoco; 16th and not even close to anyone at all. How do you have two drivers so far apart in the car? C'mon already Prema put someone that can drive in the #2.

I look forward to De Vries not stalling on the grid one of these days, 20th to 7th is pretty good.

Canamasas; bloody hell it must be stressful for Rapax watching him, every time another car comes near him it's near crash. He just can't accept losing a position. 5th and 4th is pretty good, I just hope it doesn't keep him in the series haha.

correct on Rowland getting another pen but it was for impeding not the 10 cars length. 20 seconds more time added

If you put a phenomenal talent in a phenomenal package what else do you expect? Especially if there are no other phenomenal talent/package combinations on the grid?

And I mentioned it on another F2 thread re Rowland vs Latifi. Over the past 3 rounds Latifi has outscored Rowland 65-45.

Which proves beyond all shadow of doubt there is something not right with this category!

Rowland is infinitely better than Latifi.

Just because you don't like the result doesn't mean that you trot out the F2 is rubbish line again. I've said before, F2 is a complex category with lots more variables than F3 or 3.5.

Rowland has his flaws - the over aggressive defending, inability to manage his tyres. Worse still, he's not showing capability of learning from his mistakes. The best drivers are the ones that adapt to whatever formula they're in; ultimately, Rowland's not quite doing that. We saw that too when he dabbled in Formula E a while back.
