Renamed in 2017 to replace the GP2 Series, the FIA F2 is the feeder series to F1. Founded in 2005, the GP2 Series has been a talent incubator that has seen the emergence of several future F1 world champions, such as Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton, both crowned with ART Grand Prix, respectively in 2005 and 2006. Crowned in 2015 at the wheel of an ART Grand Prix single-seater, Stoffel Vandoorne holds the record for the number of successes in the GP2 Series (11). In 2018 and 2019, George Russell and then Nyck de Vries won the F2 Drivers’ title with ART Grand Prix. The Dutchman becomes the driver with the greatest number of victories in F2 (8).
Meeting performance and safety criteria similar to those of F1, the F2 series is the ideal training school for young drivers.
