    I haven't been following GP2 closely. Does anyone want to provide a mid-season report card for the top drivers?

    As much as I've enjoyed NBC Sports' coverage of F1 this year, the fact that they seem to have dropped GP2 (while continuing to cover that complete joke of a dead feeder series, Indy Lights) has me pretty upset. I wasn't crazy about the lackluster job that Will Buxton and Jerome d'Ambrosio did in calling the races, but GP2 is usually so good that a person could turn the sound down and still enjoy some of the best pure racing on the planet. Why did they drop it??? And don't say ratings because an infomercial would get higher ratings than Indy Lights and they carry that rubbish.

    Boo, NBC Sports!

    SkySports in NZ broadcast F1, GP3 and GP2. It's GP2 that I always watch and would do so even if our Mitch Evans wasn't racing. Great commentators too.

    On the plus side, I think that the lineup that has been announced seems stronger than last year and stronger than WSR. Frijns is also rumoured to be joining now that his Sauber test seat seems to involve, well, nothing. That's good for the series, though I wish F1 could give test drivers a session a race or something instead of ignoring them in general and taking time from regular drivers in a few occasions. Though F1 seems to be having its own pay driver problems at the moment.

    I think I'd tip Calado for the title at this stage.
    For Ericsson it is quite frankly now or never. He is in the prime seat. DAMS has won the last two championships. Last year he was also in a top team iSport but disappointed. Now he has to make it happen, although I suspect his prospects as a future F1 hotshot have already faded.
