Gp2 Series Line Up Complete!!!
Posted 20 February 2006 - 09:56 AM
"As we embark on our first test of the 2006 season, I am very happy to be able to announce a full grid of 26 of the most talented and exciting young drivers around," said Bruno Michel - GP2 series organiser. "After the great line-up we had in 2005, I am happy to see another incredibly strong field of drivers lining up to compete in the GP2 series this year. With five of last year's drivers graduating to Formula One, the GP2 series has established itself as the only true stepping stone to the world's premiere racing series. The intensity of competition we have seen for this year's seats, and the resulting level of talent we will have on display in the GP2 series in 2006 is evidence of this. I am sure that this season will pick up where 2005 left off - with the cream of young driver talent fighting it out to be GP2 series champion on their way to bright futures in Formula One."

As for the GP2 season, Hamilton should win.
"You just don't mess with Jacques Villeneuve" - Murray Walker, 1997 Hungarian GP.
"When Jacques was with us, he was a very aggressive driver, fiercely competitive, mentally hard as nails. Very quick with it, very gifted. A bright fellow, undoubtedly, very intelligent. He was an absolutely born racing driver - look at the way he'd bang wheels with Michael, pass people on the outside, that kind of thing" -Sir Frank Williams on Jacques Villeneuve
"This year, with BMW, JV's going very well, and I'm pleased for him. Whether or not he'll get a drive next year I don't know, but I hope he does, he's an unusual, and very strong addition to the F1 community. A character." - Sir Frank Williams again on Jacques Villeneuve
The Nojvnof1 2006 driver lineup - Jacques Villeneuve, Nico Rosberg, Christian Klein, Scott Speed.
