Summer day 1 – Mikhail Aleshin and Kevin Ceccon

Mikhail Aleshin – 30
The Russian driver began the season with budget problems, and only completed the first two rounds for Carlin before being replaced by Oliver Turvey. When Alvaro Parente went to the Spa 24 hours, he was able to return for the Hungarian round. He has struggled in the races, with an accident in qualifying at Turkey causing him to miss both rounds there. In Barcelona, he had pretty miserable finishes, and in Hungary he had a midfield finish in the feature race and a retirement in the wet/dry/wet sprint race. When he wasn’t competing in GP2, he took part in Superleague Formula, finishing 3rd in the second race and 8th in the super final, and also in Formula Renault 3.5, the series he became champion of last season.

Kevin Ceccon – 29
Drafted in after Davide Rigon broke his leg in Turkey, the Italian became the youngest ever GP2 driver. Also competing in Auto GP, which he currently leads over Luca Filippi by two points, he has not found the GP2 cars easy to handle. However, it will be good experience for when he (presumably) returns next year.
