Bumpy start to GP2 season
May 5, 2011 Leave a comment
Though the return of Mikhail Aleshin is no doubt great news for both Carlin and the series, it highlights the great difficulties that teams are having to put a full season together with decent budgets.
Carlin may have, for now, avoided to start the season off on the wrong foot, but I would not be surprised if the Aleshin deal has more problems as the season wears on. Other teams with outwardly clear issues are Super Nova (of which I wrote extensively last season) and Ocean, whose owners may be finding that running a profitable team together may be much more difficult than initially expected.
Up at the top, no problems for the series star teams, with full or nearly-full budgets as usual.
