Umm... nobody knows yet - it hasn't started!
There's quite a big upheaval this year though, with a lot of drivers now barred from returning and a new lot coming in.
Unfortunately THE championship with some of the best racing in the entire world now has DRS... so it may be that a lot of the entertaining passing moves and dicing will be heavily affected for the worse by it - but again, we don't know until it starts..
Given recent turns in F1 you're unlikely to see any of the drivers bar Vandoorne go to F1 (and that's only if McLaren replace Button) but if you're a Sportscar or Indycar fan; you'll see most of the drivers heading that way.

Actually I do think this GP2 season could be pretty exciting. Because there are a fair amount of young serious talents.
The problem with GP2 has been that for years we have got "journeymen champions". Drivers, who have average talent, have been hanging around for years, and finally win in the right team and by the virtue of experience - Palmer, Leimer, Valsecchi. None of them were taken seriously by F1 circles.
However, now, for the 2015 season, we have Vandoorne, Gasly, Lynn, and to a lesser extent Marciello and Evans as hot favourites of the season. It is likely we can get the first serious champion after Grosjean (2011), who actually proceeds to F1 and can make a competitive career there.

Pierre Gasly is Red Bull junior driver and likely to graduate to F1 as the next Toro Rosso driver.

I'd wager a guess it is quite likely we will see these two + Vandoorne, in F1 one day. And not as paydrivers! I am unsure if Ferrari is prepared to support Marciello to find him an F1 seat (Sauber?). He is their next "Bianchi".
