2018 Formula 2

Post by NathanOlder » Tue Mar 06, 2018 10:33 pm

It may have only been testing, BUT.....

Lando Norris (rookie) was fastest in both the wet morning session, and dry afternoon session in Paul Ricard. This being the first day of testing for them (other than a shakedown in Magny Cours a few weeks ago)

Impressive for a rookie but , this guy is seriously talented and as I have in my signature, he is definitely Hamilton's replacement as the British Champion. Watch out Max, Lando is coming.

Norris leading second day.
Maybe Lando and Carlin will put 'Prema dominance' talk to bed

I've been following F3 in 2017 just for Lando, and he seems to really have a great potential. Anyway, I think he's not the only one in this year's F2. There's a really competitive field. Wouldn't be too much of a surprise if he doesn't win, but a victory in 2018 would be quite significant for any young driver considering the level of the championship

Norris and Russell :D
de Vries is quite close, but Gelael in that OP Prema, hmmm... :lol:
Edit: Just noticed, if you take Leclerc out of last year's quali, de Vries and Gelael's gap to pole last year would be the same as it is this year :wink:

Lando is coming , been saying it for a few years 8)

Just hope he doesn't end up in a pig of a Mclaren. If they cant make a decent car, hopefully someone poaches him away from woking.

That was quite a destruction by Norris.

Great drive by Markelov to come from the pits to 3rd.
Very good defensive driving by Câmara, but he has to be scratching his head with the gap his team mate put over him.

I think in a field of same chassis and engines, the whole field should be scratching their heads.

Or just bow down to Lord Lando !

Lando is coming for Nando!

I havent been following F2, except last year on a couple of occasions and seeing Leclerc utterly dominate. The last two races by Leclerc in the Sauber are quite inpressive too so far.
Not for nothing, Rosberg's Championship is the only thing that lends credibility to Hamilton's recent success. Otherwise, he'd just be the guy who's had the best car. (Ask the average Vettel fan what that's like.) --- bhall II
