I know he has been around forever but he looked good in the couple of rounds he did last year, wouldn't be at all surprised to see him finish in the top six overall again this year.

Interestingly the Wikipedia page has been updated with the recent movements - but also lists Palou in the second Campos and two Hilmer entries for Richie Stanaway and Meindurt van Buuren.

Accurate or someone up to mischief with the edit button?

Highly doubt it's accurate - Palou tested in FV8 3.5 over the winter, and I'd be surprised if he didn't end up racing for someone there (although I think he'd be a good addition to the grid of it does happen), while Stanaway still has Aston Martin commitments and a Supercars Enduro Cup drive as well, so it's unlikely he'd still be looking for an open wheel seat as well

Of the rest, I'm not sure about Boschung at Campos (sure, he was OK in GP3, but I think he'd be found out against a higher level of opposition), but if they can get an experienced name like Merhi in the second seat - who I still rate highly - then it might help him get to grips with the car quicker
De Vries is a decent addition as well for Rapax, but I've never been Cecotto's biggest fan, and I think it's a bit of a waste of a seat that could go to someone with a bit more potential
Hopefully Hilmer do get out, but as for who drives for them I don't know - Van Buuren and Bernstorff would be my best guess, but that's probably 100% wrong...

I look forward to seeing Merhi in the series if it happens, he was unlucky in F1 with Manor, although his results did improve as time went on

Palou was testing with Threebond Tomei last week at Suzuka Circuit and he was quick, so seems likely he will be racing Japanese Formula 3 Championship , but maybe an extra programm can be added

I still think Merhi is a great driver. He did well in the F3, GP3, in the end well in the DTM (especially that race in the wet at Hockenheim) and no worse than Chilton in F1. He deserves a chance in the GP2, I think.
Van Buuren in the GP2 looks like a step too early for me. He wasted that weekend with MP Motorsport at Monza with stupid mistakes. Another year in a competitive car in the GP3 would be better, I think. But that only counts if Hilmer makes the grid at all, I certainly hope so.

No sign of life from Hilmer.

Canamasas is testing with Trident alongside Jeffri: http://www.gpupdate.net/en/gp2-news/...or-f2-testing/

Merhi struggling a bit!

Rowland has declared war on the competition. He aims to 'dominate' the season.

Was not there a rule stating that an F1 Driver is now allowed to step down to GP2?

Bruni, Pantano, Glock, Pizzonia, Grosjean, Yamamoto all did it, although that was a few years ago now and I'm not sure anyone has done it since.

I thought the only rule was former champions were unable to return

Pretty sure it was for previous champions or people that had done a full season in F1. Merhi himself said it might take a day or two to get up to speed, he did finish up 5th yesterday afternoon though. 😉

Alex K has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Merhi don't need it, honestly, if he struggl;es with budget requirements time to start talks with TCR teams. No point doing F2. Same with Cecotto, and Canamasas. Cecotto is a good pedaller, but enough is enough, time to move on. I think he is one of major favs of 2017, he is in great team, as Rapax is top team with right driver, but what would a title give him?! Canamasas, please, just move on....

Not surprised with Rapax speed, surprised with King's struggles. Going to be top season, where you do not know who's gonna come on top.

I'm fairly sure we know who will be in the running and it won't be as close as last year. Maybe 3-4 regular top guys and then the rest?
