No, I’,m not going to ramble on about the futility of GP2 Asia… you can read earlier posts about this.
So the GP2 Asia “season” came and went with the blink of an eye. Drivers lined up for this year’s championship, lining up the necessary sponsorship to get their hands on the all new GP2/11 car. Top teams commanded €2 million-plus budgets, taking full advantage of drivers eager to secure a ride for the Main Series this year. Yet, as it all drew to a close, we have been left with a decaffeinated racing season.
We saw no surprises, no incredible drives, no exciting battles and all in all no racing at the level of what is expected for GP2 at this stage.
Yes, the Bahrain cancellations took a bit away from the season but, at the end once again I ask: what’s the point??
