GP Week : Issue 6
Romain Grosjean ART Grand Prix Yes, the car was detuned in comparison to the main series and, yes,, he was with arguably the best team of the first three years of GP2, but the reigning F3 EuroSeries champion was a worthy champion of the inaugural GP2 Asia title. While rumours of special treatment dogged his campaign, the true test will come in the main series where he returns with ART for a crack at the crown that really matters. Sebastien Buemi Trust Team Arden The Swiss driver made an instant impression as a stand-in for Ammermuller in GP2’s 2007 season, but a championship of combining GP2 commitments with F3 left him open to errors and his critics. The Asia series has seen him mature quickly to establish himself as one of Grosjean’s most serious rivals. Luca Filippi Qi Meritus Mahara Why so high a placing for a driver who finished just 16th in the championship? The answer is simple – but for a foul-up with his team mate’s tyres, Filippi would have won in Indonesia. He might also have won in Dubai on the opening weekend but for a tonked gearbox. And all this driving for a team with no previous GP2 experience. Vitaly Petrov Barwa Int. Campos Team A race winner and one of the most consistently fast drivers of the championship, Petrov showed consistent racing acumen and aggression. The Russian clearly made the best use of his days under Pantano at Campos and has matured into a safe, steady and competent pair of hands. Far more importantly, he has become a team-leader. Bruno Senna iSport International Consistently fast but lacking the luck of his rivals, Senna had an Asia series of mixed fortunes. He may have failed to win a race, but was widely seen as Grosjean’s biggest championship rival for the duration of the championship. He made his own errors (Malaysia in the wet) but the team must take responsibility for its own share of Senna’s misfortune. Car failures however, at this stage of the car’s development, should be a thing of the past and were the fault of neither driver nor team. 1 2 3 4 5 28
