Updated: GP2 makes up 50% of F1 rookie test lineup

As if we needed further confirmation of the strength of the GP2 Series in promoting drivers to F1, this week’s 4-day test at the Yas Marina circuit is completely dominated by current GP2 drivers.  At the last count, there are 20 drivers participating in the test, with 9 of them (45%) coming from GP2.

Update: with the confirmation of Davide Valsecchi and Josef Kral testing with HRT this week, of the 22 drivers, 11 are come from GP2 – an even 50%.

    Pretty sure Haryanto is there as a prize for being top Manor driver in GP3.

    Why are you so anti WSR.
    Ricciardo fastest at test both days and didn’t drive there on the weekend.
