Cap­i­tal wel­comes fu­ture stars of F1

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Mo­tor­sport fans will have the chance to see the fu­ture stars of For­mula One this week­end when the GP2 and GP3 series come to an end in Abu Dhabi. The tal­ented young driv­ers fea­tur­ing in the two series will be in ac­tion at Yas Ma­rina Cir­cuit from Novem­ber 25-27, ahead of the fi­nal F1 race of the sea­son. Now in its 12th year, GP2 has pro­duced a num­ber of tal­ented F1 driv­ers, in­clud­ing Mercedes duo Lewis Hamil­ton and Nico Ros­berg, who won the very first GP2 series cham­pi­onship in 2005. Like F1, the fi­nal race of the GP2 sea­son will be a ti­tle de­cider be­tween PREMA Rac­ing team’s An­to­nio Giov­inazzi and Pierre Gasly (pic­tured left). Giov­inazzi, who is in his de­but sea­son in GP2, cur­rently leads the stand­ings, but Gasly is seen as one to watch in the fu­ture and has acted as a re­serve driver for Red Bull Rac­ing. Mean­while, the GP3 Series driv­ers’ ti­tle is also go­ing to the wire in the fi­nal round of the sea­son at Yas Ma­rina Cir­cuit. ART GP’s Charles Le­clerc is in pole po­si­tion, with his team­mate Alexan­der Al­bon and Tri­dent’s An­to­nio Fuoco hot on his heels. Le­clerc leads the stand­ings by 29 points from Al­bon.
