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%.
