GP2 drivers make up 50% of the F1 grid

With the 2010 F1 entry list published, and this morning’s confirmation of Karun Chandhok at HRT,  a total of 11 GP2 graduates will be racing in F1 this year – 48% of the grid.  If to this we add the F3000 guys, quasi-GP2 grads, the number is 16 drivers, or 67% of the grid.

2 teams – HRT and Virgin – are made up only of GP2 drivers.  GP2 champs in F1 are Nico Rosberg, Lewis Hamilton, Timo Glock and Nico Hulkenberg.  Only Giorgio Pantano is missing to make it a full sweep.

The relevance of GP2 is clear, but the numbers make it overwhelming.

    Some bad drivers there…but today the budget is all you need…by the way, Álvaro Parente was confirmed to take part of the last race of GP2 Asia Series with Scuderia Coloni again…
