Valsecchi closes out Asia grid with Air Asia
February 1, 2011 2 Comments
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?
