After 12 seasons GP2, following an agreement between Formula One Group and the FIA, will officially become the FIA Formula 2 Championship.

Starting in 2005, the GP2 series has firmly established itself on the world stage as one of the premier one-make racing championships. The FIA Formula 2 Championship will continue to provide the same opportunities for young driver talent to demonstrate their abilities in front of Formula 1 teams as they compete on world-renowned circuits, on a car created to ensure that the challenge for the teams is also maintained.

With Formula 1 at its peak, Formula 2 (F2) join the ranks of single-seater FIA championships, which aim to nurture talented drivers from karting through Formula 4 and Formula 3 before they enter the world stage.

With F2 in place, motorsport will be more accessible to both drivers and fans. Since GP2’s inaugural season, drivers from the series have graduated from the championship to Formula 1 every year, from the first ever champion (and reigning World Champion) Nico Rosberg to Stoffel Vandoorne this year.
