F2 FIA Formula Two Championships 2009

The 2009 FIA Formula Two Championship was re-launched this year after 25 years to give young aspiring drivers the opportunity to compete in the highest tiers of motorsport which is a fairer, more affordable and most importantly a feeder series directly to Formula One.

In September 2008 Motor Sport Vision won the tender to supply the cars and operate the Championships to the series that saw drivers using a chassis built at the WilliamsF1 team's headquarters.

The Championships began in May at the Circuit de Valencia in Spain and ends in November at Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona, Spain.

FIA President Max Mosley believes the recently re-launched Formula 2 Championship is designed as a feeder for Formula 1. After the first race in Valencia Mosley said, "I'm astonished at how successful the day has been, Jonathan Palmer and Williams have done an absolutely fantastic job."

With a capacity grid of 25 drivers from 15 countries the FIA Formula 2 Championship comprises of 16 races over 8 events throughout Europe.
