Most drivers/teams see F2 as just a stepping stone, probably more than any other series. One that you don't stay in for your career.

It would be like if Anthony Joshua returned to the Olympics.
What about the likes of Grosjean and Glock etc?

To be fair the Marussia was hardly a car to shine in was it. As for Merhi in F2, i think he is probably using it as an opportunity to keep his name out there, he has no financial backing as such so if Rapax come and ask him to drive for them why wouldn't he grab the chance?

I don't think Glock had ever been in GP2 had he? He went from Porsche, F1 (only 4 races though), Cart then GP2. So his move to return to GP2 was odd but he made up for it winning the title in his 2nd season.

Grosjean did the same, a season of GP2, called up to F1 for just 7 races to partner Fred Alonso. Didn't perform and honestly how could he with Alonso as his team mate! Alonso makes everyone look slow. Stepped back down to win Auto GP then dominated GP2 the next season.

In hindsight, they both returned and won it so it was the right move for them. Although on the other hand it could be said both were overquaified for Gp2 at that point, and both winning the titles was proof to that.

Even if he ends up winning the F2 title next year, I don't think he has any chance of returning to F1. Grosjean I think did. But maybe he knows that and just wants to race single seaters. If he has no budget then good on him I suppose.

I think you're being pedantic, obviously he means stepping back to feeder series single seaters after being in F1. Before he went to F1 he did Euro F3

Dutch TV made a report today that Nyck de Vries will be driving for Prema next year as Geleal's teammate... Not confirmed on internet yet, but that should be a good move for De Vries

Perhaps he will participate WEC either LMP2 or GTE-Pro with Ferrari. Or even he can participate DTM race with other manufacturer (Especially BMW or Audi)

Speaking about Ferrari Driver Academy in F2 , Callum Ilott will takeover his seat as the new Ferrari Driver Academy in F2.

According to F1-Stinger website,
Nirei Fukuzumi will drive Arden car at F2 test after Abu Dhabi race.
And Tadasuke Makino will drive Russian time car at that test.
Fukuzumi will participate in Super Formula from team Mugen in addition to Formula 2 activity next season.
Nobuharu Matsushita will back to Japan, and participate in Super Formula.

Ilott much more likely GP3.

@peebee2

Thanks you for your opinion, then I guess Giuliano Alesi will replaced Fuoco for the Ferrari Driver Academy F2 seat.

How about your opinion?

Maybe, but he would be down the back imo and it depends how much his Dad wants to spend. I’d think more likely GP3 again

Oh I see.

@peebee2

By the way , I think Fuoco can continue to participate F2 , that because he have the sponsor which is Kaspersky Internet Security and he also a Ferrari Young Driver Program. But for Ghiotto I think is very hard to secure the F2 seat for the next season. Perhaps Markelov and Latifi can secure the seat at least next season due to the good championship result for Markelov while Latifi granted the Renault F1 seat as the test driver. If Sergey Sirotkin is transfer to Williams racing as the test and reserved driver then he also can secure as the reserved driver as well.

Do you agree?
How about your opinion?
