Rapax had been out from the very beginning. Quite disappointed to see RE and Fortec bail out at this stage - we were looking at a bumper grid (well, 24) but not the case now. I wonder if its in part due to a lack of suitable budgetted drivers?

bruno michel implies that it is in the official press release:

I’m also sorry to see Fortec Motorsports step back this season, but this was a joint decision. We will reconsider their entry when the conditions are more favourable.
i'm not sure conditions *will* be more favourable when your series costs that much to participate in..

That’s a shame about racing engineering, 2017 was their only bad season really. I’m glad that Russian time are back though, it feels a bit wrong losing the reigning teams champion

Of course, I thought it was going to happen, and I think this are not only teams the will "bail out," scale down to one car later in the season, in seasons to come.

I think a lot of you had same feelings.

Markelov and Makino confirmed at Russian Time.

You’d think that Markelov would have tried his hand at F1 by now - he’s not even done a test yet, has he, let alone a practice session. He’s obviously got the money behind him, now he has the superlicense points as well so not much more to achieve in F2. If he wins now, he falls into the Palmer/Leimer bracket of winning largely on the strength of being the most experienced man in the field. Anything less than the title and he’s at best stagnated.

Makino is an interesting one - went well in testing but it’s a big step up from a handful of half-decent outings in F3

Seems like Arjun Maini is confirmed in the second Trident alongside Ferrucci ,trident looking like to become Haas Junior Team.

Would not be surprised to see Alex Albon confirmed in the second Dams and my personal guess is Celis Jnr will be in the second Campos

Not seen anything confirming Ferrucci and Maini at Trident, although it seems likely.

Likewise Albon at DAMS, but who is in the first seat?

Can see Ferrucci starting the year, not so sure I can see him not throwing the toys out of the prom and lasting the whole year when he’s a back marker as usual.

Max Gunther takes the second drive at Arden - should certainly be a contender for some reverse grid wins if not more.

And Latifi confirmed at DAMS today too (although not exactly a big news story)

Just Trident and MP left to announce any drivers, and second seats at Campos and DAMS to be filled

As I have been saying, FIA F2 should only allow drivers with at least one season of experience in GP3 or similar.

As above, Albon and Latifi at DAMS, Maini and Ferrucci at Trident.

Just MP and Campos second to go.

De Jong at MP is worrying. Unless they have drivers signed up and he does initial shake down, which would be strange. Could it be MP struggling to attract drivers?
