FIA Formula 2 Championship’s 2018 Teams confirmed
The 2018 grid will be made of 20 cars
FIA Formula 2 Championship promoters are pleased to confirm that ten teams have been entered for the 2018 season. Reigning Champions RUSSIAN TIME will be back on the grid whilst Racing Engineering and Fortec Motorsports who had initially showed an interest in competing in 2018 ultimately have decided to step back this season.
The 2018 grid will comprise two British outfits (Arden International and Carlin), two French teams (ART Grand Prix and DAMS), two Italian squads (PREMA Racing and Trident), one Czech team (Charouz Racing System), one Dutch team (MP Motorsport), one Spanish team (Campos Racing), and one Russian outfit (RUSSIAN TIME).
FIA Formula 2 CEO Bruno Michel said: “I’m very pleased to confirm that our reigning champions RUSSIAN TIME will join the 2018 grid.
“I would like to thank Alfonso de Orléans-Borbón and the whole Racing Engineering team for their dedication and hard work over the years. I’m looking forward to renewing our fruitful collaboration in the near future.
“I’m also sorry to see Fortec Motorsports step back this season, but this was a joint decision. We will reconsider their entry when the conditions are more favourable. I feel it best for our championship to limit the number of teams in 2018 to ten. I know they will provide yet again an incredible show.”
Following the results of the 2017 FIA Formula 2 Championship Teams’ classification, the 2018 FIA Formula 2 Championship grid will carry the following numbers:
ART Grand Prix
Charouz Racing System
