Valsecchi closes out Asia grid with Air Asia

The final spot for the 2011 GP2 Asia grid was filled by Davide Valsecchi, as announced by the team.

The rookie team fields a very solid and experienced lineup with Valsecchi and Razia, giving the team a strong push to start strong as it faces this new category.

I had my doubts whether the sporting rules allowed Valsecchi to return for another GP2 Asia season after he was crowned champion last year, but I guess this announcements answers my question.  That said, I am not sure why the rules for Asia and Europe have to be different, since any GP2 Main champ could not return the following year…  Is this a clear message (once again) of the weakness of this makeshift category… an excuse for a long, extended preseason test?

  1. The weakness of the GP2 Asia Series can be perceived by lowering the number of rounds from 4 to 3, being 2 rounds at the same circuit: Bahrein.

    We have other great circuits in Asia, such as Suzuka, Shangai, Sepang, Istambul, Fuji and Macau, but the GP2 Asia will take place in only two tracks.

    At least will the GP2 Asia be broadcasted?
