End of season seat dance?
September 9, 2009 8 Comments
As DPR announces the signing of Johnny Cecotto for both Monza and Portimao, I begin to wonder if we will see more seats being shuffled for these 2 final races.
Were this a normal year, and given the below-budget sums that many drivers have paid, the answer would be yes. This year, the only reason to sit in a GP2 car for these last races is to prepare for 2010. I’m not sure if Cecotto has the budget or backing to make this move. Though he has driven well in German F3, his appearances in F3000 and F3 Euroseries have gone mainly unnoticed by all.
I think we will see some drivers pop into GP2. Coletti is a good example and others could follow, maybe Formula Master champ Fabio Leimer, WSR guys “graduating” to GP2 (Pic?) or some new Latin blood coming over to this side of the Atlantic.
Tomorrow we should see if any new faces show up at Monza… a beautiful and appealing track for any driver.
