Special Interview with British F3 Driver Harry Tincknell

The GP2 Series enters in its seventh season

after six thriving years that established the category as a must-see for those

wanting to know who the next big thing in Formula One

will be. The new GP2/11 car debuted last January in Abu

Dhabi in the GP2 Asia Series and on Pirelli tyres the Italian

manufacturer becoming the sole supplier to the category.

The 2011 season is set to deliver action-packed and exciting

races that fans and motorsport professionals alike have

come to expect from the most successful Formula One

feeder series.

Two new teams join the field: Carlin and Team AirAsia,

expanding the grid to twenty six cars. The latter chose to

benefit from two experienced and race winner drivers in the

shape of Luiz Razia and Davide Valsecchi, while the British

squad bet on their strong and successful relationship with

Mikhail Aleshin and sophomore Max Chilton. Over eighteen

races this season, twenty-six drivers will fight for glory and

if GP2 Asia Series Champion Romain Grosjean at Dams’

looks like a serious title contender, many other talented

racers will also run for the same status.

From Istanbul to Monza, and alongside Formula One,

the 2011 GP2 Series season promises one extremely

competitive battle!
