The battle to be Britain's next F1 star

With three drivers likely to be in the title fight in F1's feeder series, hopes are high that the next British grand prix ace is just around the corner. Throw in a host of experienced names, intra-team battles and the introduction of a new car, and the 2018 F2 season promises to be an intriguing one

A Mercedes driver fighting a McLaren racer and a Renault star for glory, all the while battling a host of more experienced opponents, each with their own excellent chance of victory. It would make pretty good viewing at a grand prix event, wouldn't it?

In 2018, Mercedes part-time Formula 1 reserve and reigning GP3 champion George Russell steps up to Formula 2 alongside McLaren reserve and last year's European Formula 3 title winner Lando Norris, with Renault standby and '17 GP3 runner-up Jack Aitken joining them on the F2 grid. Russell and Aitken will transfer to F2 with category stalwart ART Grand Prix (with which they both competed in the third tier last term), while Norris is racing with the returning Carlin team.
