Yeah it should be a good season with some new faces.

What are your predictions?

I predict Leclerc might just come out on top, but he'll have stiff competition from Albon, Ghiotto, Rowland, Fuoco (in fact that's my final points order). Other guys like Markelov, De Vries, Malja, Deletraz, Matsushita could win races.

I predict Merhi won't even manage a podium. Campos was too slow last year. Nato strong in testing but... it's an Arden.

If Leclerc does end up the champ, that's consecutive gp3/gp2 titles - how could F1 turn him away (Haas 2018)?

I have to agree, I think it could be wide open, you would have to say Prema, DAMS and ART are the obvious choices but I am far from convinced by Fuocco, Ghiotto will be there or there abouts, Cecotto will get a few podiums, possibly win one or two, as for Nato, it depends on how much Arden strengthened over the winter doesn't it, he could easily be top five overall though.

FYI Arden hired former ART Grand Prix Engineer , so the pace they showed over the last test could (hopefully) be confirmed over the full season

Ah, that's interesting, I had read they had got some new guys in but couldn't find who anywhere, Nato could well be a championship challenger then. 😉

On another note, Merhi has said he will find out in the next fortnight whether he has got the Campos drive or not, fingers crossed. 😊

I think it is more can Campos find the money to run him to be honest.

According to Italiaracing Campos are going to run Raoul Hyman this week in Bahrain, i can only assume the funds didn't materialise for Merhi, that's a shame, neither Boschung or Hyman in a Campos car is going to be troubling the podium any time soon are they.

Hyman also tested in GP3 so I would assume nothing at this stage. For all we know they will end up signing Sirotkin.

Forgot about Sirotkin. Has he got no plans yet for 2017? Campos would be a bad move for Sirotkin or Mehri. Unless the team fixes whatever issues they were having in 2016, they'll continue to be backmarkers no matter who drives for them.

If the mass injection of Indonesian rupiahs last year didn't help fix their problems, nothing will.

Well, it all kicks off this week, anyone care to guess who the final two drivers will be, surely Canamasas will be in at Trident?

Canamasas already confirmed. It makes me wonder where the money comes from for all these GP2 seasons. Reminds me of Fabrizio Gollin back in F3000 days - a lot of money spent to run in the midfield. Is it "Faca" who sponsor Canamasas? What do they do?

Hyman probably favourite for the Campos seat seeing as all things Merhi have gone quiet. Can't think of anyone else in the frame

Mr Sergio Juan Canamasas , General Director of FACA Packaging, so basicly his familly business

Rumour has it that Campos will rotate drivers in the second car.
