Can F2's underrated star 'do an Albon'?

There's a driver on the 2019 Formula 2 grid that has shown plenty of promise over the years, but is still a step away from making it to the top level. But one current F1 rookie's journey to grand prix racing has given this underrated driver hope.

The fastest driver in the 2019 F2 season so far isn't part of a F1 junior programme. He's the son of an Italian factory owner-turned clubman racer, and is shorter on cash than most at F2 level. But, nine years after he started his car racing career, Luca Ghiotto is still on the cusp of making it to the pinnacle of motorsport.

The 2019 season sums up Ghiotto's career to date. Searing pace, ill fortune and mistakes that have been amplified by bad luck. It's been a roller coaster ride.
