2017 Formula 2 Championship

Russian Time won the inaugural teams' championship.

The 2017 FIA Formula 2 Championship was the fifty-first season of the second-tier of Formula One feeder championship and also the first season under the moniker of FIA Formula 2 Championship, a motor racing championship run in support of the 2017 FIA Formula One World Championship. The championship is sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) and is open to teams and drivers competing in cars complying with Formula 2 regulations.[1]

2017 was the final season that the Dallara GP2/11 chassis package--which débuted in the 2011 GP2 Series--was used in competition. It was also the final season that the Mecachrome 4.0 litre V8 naturally-aspirated engine package that débuted in the 2005 GP2 Series was used, as a brand new chassis and engine package was introduced for the 2018 season.[2][3]

The season was dominated by Charles Leclerc, who secured the drivers' championship with three races to go.[4] Second place went to Artem Markelov with Oliver Rowland finishing third. The teams' championship was decided in the final race, with Russian Time winning by fifteen points over Prema Racing and DAMS in third, a further eleven points behind.

Champion Charles Leclerc took 7 wins, while runner-up Artem Markelov took 5 victories, Oliver Rowland took 2 wins, Luca Ghiotto, who finished fourth in the championship, took 1 win, Nobuharu Matsushita took 2 victories, Norman Nato, Nicholas Latifi, Antonio Fuoco, Nyck de Vries and Sérgio Sette Câmara each took one race win.

Teams and drivers

All FIA Formula 2 drivers competed in a Dallara GP2/11 chassis, using a Mecachrome GP2 V8 engine and Pirelli tyres.

Team changes

After six seasons in the series, Carlin withdrew to concentrate on their Indy Lights programme.[31] German entry Hilmer Motorsport were due to return to the series while it was still known as GP2, however, this never came to fruition.[32]

Calendar

The following eleven rounds took place as part of the 2017 championship:

Calendar changes

The series returned to the Bahrain International Circuit in support of the Bahrain Grand Prix,[44] while the rounds at the Hockenheimring and the Sepang International Circuit were discontinued.[44] The series made its début at the Circuito de Jerez, with a stand-alone event that was run as the penultimate round of the championship.[44]

Changes

The series was originally intended to be run as the GP2 Series before it was rebranded as the FIA Formula 2 Championship in March 2017.[1] The decision to rebrand the series brings it in line with the FIA Global Pathway, which aims to create a linear path of feeder series from domestic Formula 4 to the top tier of open-wheel racing, Formula One. Despite the name change, it will retain the GP2 regulations as originally scheduled, making the 2017 season the thirteenth to use GP2 regulations. It will be the first time that a series has been run under the name of Formula 2 since Jonathan Palmer's unrelated series collapsed in 2012.
