Formulahistory should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
2017 FIA Formula 2 (nee GP2) silly season

Just two rounds this year. So have a look at 2017. Who could drive in GP2? My suggestions:

Prema Power: Nick Cassidy - Charles Leclerc
Racing Engineering: Jordan King - Norman Nato
Russian Time: Artem Markelov - Matevos Isaakyan
ART: Nyck de Vries - Nirei Fukuzumi
DAMS: Nicholas Latifi - Alex Albon
MP: Daniel de Jong - Aurélien Panis
Campos: Mitch Evans - Sean Gelael
Trident: Luca Ghiotto - Philo Paz Armand
Rapax: Gustav Malja - Antonio Fuoco
Carlin: Alfonso Celis jr. - Louis Delétraz
Arden: Egor Orudzhev - Jake Dennis

What about Rowland? Likely to get second year, and in a better team. Much better bet for RSF investment than lukewarm Dennis.

Can't see Galael staying at Campos but who knows.

Expect Leclerc to be in F1 or with ART. And not sure Carlin will want to continue with GP2.

And do you really think Markelov would fund a rookie who is also another Russian?

Yep i think Rowland will be talking to the top teams provided he has the budget or one of the can subsidise him a bit.

Depends how much Renault still want to back him as well as RSF.

Of the current line up who/how many will be back do we all think?

So unless there are no clashes and both he and Campos want to continue, I don't think so.

If Giovinazzi does not win the title, expect him to be back - surely with Prema

Delétraz will probably continue doing what he is doing now, or move to a frontrunning GP2 team.
Much will depend upon what Renault and BMW (he is a junior driver for both!) want, and whether Formula V8 and/or GP2 clashes with his other programme(s)

ART will not be fielding 2 rookies. And if they do, they can get much better drivers.
Instead of fielding their 2 slowest GP3 drivers, how about one or both of their fastest: Leclerc and Albon?

Evans drives for Galael, not Campos.

Galael to Prema with stable-mate Gio??

I think he'll take the best team - and that's Prema.

To keep Giovinazzi and get Galaels budget. Assuming Gio isn't champ this year. Galael pays for Gio career (and Evans this year).

Good point!

However I think Red Bull may well place their next guy there after Gasly?

Their next guy being? It's far too large a jump for their F3 boys, so unless they're willing to turn Richard Verschoor into the next Dutch wonderkid (which they won't) then they may have to snap someone up! Any suggestions? Perhaps Giovinazzi himself!!!
