    22 has no time

    I tried working out if there was a company sign or something on the monitor, cause aviously there is internet at the track so should be online somewhere 😀

    brand new track, so should run faster and faster as long as it goes.

    • gp2 insider says:

      Let us know if you figure it out Patrik! I agree it should be online somewhere…. I will Tweet the iSport guys just in case they know.

    Can I just point out that list was not supplied to GP2 Insider in any way it was posted onto the iSport Twitter account on a picture for all to see and GP2 Insider has taken it off that which is fine. iSport does not endorse this website in any way.

    • gp2 insider says:

      Hayley, we appreciate your help in getting the times to all us GP2 fans – I was just passing them along. Sorry if this upset you and I will make sure and ask before using information from you in the future… thanks and I apologize again.

    I think its too early to say , lets wait until tomorrow.

    I have to say something about meritus team speed. Ok, maybe having 2 experienced drivers help a lot with set-up etc ,but could it be that gp2 mafia will help meritus to win gp2 asia championship for 2 reasons:
    1)Asian team wins pseudo-asian championship. Everyone happy.
    2)Meritus wants to enter gp2 main championship by 2011, but maybe if they win asian one and durango pulls off from gp2 then meritus can replace them already in 2010.

    Meritus aiming high, targets F1 by 2016
    22/08/09
    have announced plans to expand their race engineering services to GP2 Europe by 2011.

    • gp2 insider says:

      Yes, and I have “announced plans” to buy a Ferrari California on 2010 – but it won’t necessarily happen! More seriously, with the arrival of Lotus The Meritus plans may be a bit redundant, don’t you think?

      • sauber11 says:

        I doubt Meritus WANTS to come back

        I just proved that they want 🙂
        Will they or not we shall see , i believe they will ( enter gp2 main, not formula1 by 2016 or ever).

        About Lotus , i hope they will cooperate with Meritus , as they will race same weekends. Maybe thats the reason why Lotus refused to join forces with team malaysia from A1.
        But this is just my guess .
