Two new drivers, Stefano Coletti and Raffaele Marciello - a new line-up for a new season.
The 2014 GP2 series gets underway this weekend at the Sakhir International Circuit, Bahrain. This year the Series will comprise of 11 rounds and, for the first time, the GP2 teams will be racing in Austria and Russia.
For this race Pirelli will be providing both their ha! rd and soft compounds and, in a change to this year’s regulation, the GP2 teams must use both nominated compounds during the race. However, the tyre allocation for GP2 is a lot lower: three sets of the hard prime compound and two of the soft option per car per race weekend. With two races over the weekend, as well as Free Practice and Qualification, selection of the tyres and when to use them will be crucial to success.
