Summer day 11 – Herck, Carroll, Fauzy, Chilton

Michael Herck – 20
Romanian Michael has been driving in GP2 for a long time with limited success. This year he has generally finished on the cusp of the points, finally picking one up in the Valencia sprint race. Driving for Scuderia Coloni, it looked like that would be their only point until Luca Filippi switched teams and took the win on his 100th race. All the same, Michael has been doing a solid job.

Points: 1
Best qualifying: 14
Worst qualifying: 24
Best finish: 6 (Valencia sprint)
Worst finish: 24 (Silverstone feature)
Retirements: 3

Adam Carroll – 19
After plying his trade in America last season, Adam was out of a drive for 2010 until he made a brilliant comeback in Formula Renault 3.5. Suddenly everyone was talking about him again. Another good round in Auto GP made his old team Super Nova invite him back to GP2, which worked out well for everyone. He scored two points on his return as he gets used to the new GP2 car.

Points: 2
Best qualifying: 14
Worst qualifying: 18
Best finish: 5 (Nurburgring sprint)
Worst finish: 19 (Hungaroring feature)
Retirements: 0

Fairuz Fauzy – 18
Until this season, Fairuz had failed to score any points in the main GP2 series, though the Malaysian had plenty of success in GP2 Asia. Returning to the series to drive for Super Nova, he scored points in the first two sprint races. Since then, however, he has not done as well, and needs to improve for the final two rounds of the season. Fairuz is a terrible qualifier, but picks up places in the races.

Points: 3
Best qualifying: 19
Worst qualifying: 25
Best finish: 5 (Istanbul sprint)
Worst finish: 21 (Silverstone feature)
Retirements: 3 (1 classified)

Max Chilton – 17
Carlin’s full-time driver Max is the younger brother of BTCC driver Tom Chilton. Struggling for the first couple of races, his breakthrough came in Monaco when he picked up points in both races. He aso managed a point in the sprint at the Nurburgring. The Brit has had a lot of retirements this year, but generally qualifies well and should improve as his confidence grows.

Points: 4
Best qualifying: 5
Worst qualifying: 26
Best finish: 6 (Monaco, Nurburgring sprints)
Worst finish: 19 (Silverstone sprint)
Retirements: 5
