The FIA confirmed that the current eleven teams in Formula 2 will remain for 2021. In a little bit of a nothingy announcement, the promoters broke the news that all F2 teams will remain until 2023.
There haven’t been, as far as we’re aware, any new teams looking to join. None of the familiar names on the grid have been looking to leave neither to the best of our knowledge. However, in the current financial climate with the COVID-19 pandemic affecting all parts of life, the news is still welcome.
The same car and the same teams will be in place for a further three seasons. The difference for fans will come from the split of F2 and F3 resulting in three races per weekend.
The announcement from Bruno Michel, FIA F2 CEO:
“For the next three-year cycle, we have decided to renew our trust in the same eleven teams who have been racing with us in 2020. They have showed immense resilience and professionalism in these trying times. They all have done a wonderful job and they also have relied on us to ensure that everything was done to keep racing.
“Together, we have been through some very challenging times, and together we will keep on working hard to maintain the level of our championship as high as it currently is thus attracting the best and most exciting young drivers.”
