Action returns at Silverstone and Coletti still leading the drivers’ standings

142 views

The fifth round of the GP2 season will take place this weekend at Silverstone.

After a four week break, the 2013 GP2 Series™ returns to action this week at Silverstone with Stefano Coletti still leading the drivers’ standings.

The Monegasque ace looks strong and unstoppable having added another win to his 2013 record after dominating the rest of the field in the Sprint Race in Monaco.

But it was Sam Bird who impressed in the Feature Race on the streets of Monte Carlo to take a second win this season and move up to third in the drivers’ standings.

Felipe Nasr remains second after another positive round. The Brazilian driver is the only one along with Coletti to have scored points at every single race this season, putting both Rapax and Carlin at the top of the teams’ standings.

The only things missing on Nasr’s remarkable 2013 record are a maiden pole position and a long-awaited first win. Could Silverstone bring him glory?

The fifth round of the GP2 season will take place this weekend at a high-paced, abrasive and demanding track for both the drivers and the cars. Copse (Turn 9) which the cars take at high speed is the fastest and most challenging corner of the layout.

The weather is also pretty unpredictable at Silverstone with the wet-weather tyres coming into play more often than not, and the ambient temperatures can vary a lot from a session to the next. Therefore, the Series sole tyre supplier Pirelli have selected Hard and Medium compounds.
