2019 2021

The 2020 Formula Two Season, formally known as the 2020 FIA Formula 2 Championship, wase the fourth edition of the FIA Formula 2 Championship, and the sixteenth edition of the GP2 Series format.[1] Originally planned to be held between 20 March and the 29 November 2020, the 2020 Season was actually conduced between July and December 2020, after the 2020 Covid-19 Pandemic caused the original calendar to be torn up.[1][2]

Nyck de Vries entered 2020 as the reigning F2 Champion, although the series' rules meant that he was unable to defend his crown.[3] The Dutchman subsequently secured a seat in the FIA Formula E Championship for the season, as his former F2 employers ART Grand Prix hired Marcus Armstrong to replace him.[4]

French team DAMS would start the 2020 Season as the reigning Teams' Champions, although they opted to field a brand new line-up of Sean Gelael and F2 rookie Dan Ticktum.[5]

The start of the season would be delayed as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, with the opening round in Bahrain postponed amid a suspension of Formula One, F2 and the FIA Formula 3 Championships until May 2020.[2] After an en-masse cancellation of races, a new calendar for the 2020 season was released on 2 June 2020, with the season set to start in Austria on 4 July.[6]

The season opened with victory for Callum Ilott, before Felipe Drugovich became the first rookie of the season to claim victory in the Sprint Race.[7] The following weekend, again staged at the Red Bull Ring, would see Robert Shwartzman and Christian Lundgaard claim their maiden victories in their rookie seasons, with Shwartzman claiming a second win in Hungary.[8]

With that Shwartzman emerged as a major title pretender, although four poor races in Silverstone, culminating in a costly collision with teammate Mick Schumacher while fighting for the lead, prevented the Russian racer from building an advantage.[9] Indeed, Schumacher would then take up the mantle of being Prema's main title challenger, with the German racer beginning a five-race streak of podium finishes.[9]

Schumacher would, however, have to wait for the Monza Feature Race to claim his first victory, although it was Ilott who ended that weekend in the lead in the Championship with his third win of the campaign in the Sprint.[10] Schumacher then claimed the lead as Ilott and Shwartzman failed to score major points in Mugello, before extending his lead with a second win in Sochi.[11]

The season finale would be held with four races in Bahrain, two on the full Bahrain International Circuit, and two on the experimental "Outer Circuit" at the same venue.[12] No fewer than nine drivers entered the first battle of Bahrain with a shot at the title, although after the first pair of races only Schumacher, Ilott, Nikita Mazepin, Shwartzman and Yuki Tsunoda held mathematical hopes of the crown.[13]

Ultimately it would be Schumacher who triumphed in the final battle, with a dramatic Sprint Race seeing the fortunes of Schumacher and Ilott ebb and flow.[14] Elsewhere, Yuki Tsunoda claimed the Anthoine Hubert Award for the best rookie, finishing a point behind Ilott in third in the Championship, while twelve drivers claimed victory at some point during the 24 race 2020 campaign.[14]

Calendar

Formula_2_Intro_2020_(FHD)

Formula 2 Intro 2020 (FHD)

The 2020 FIA Formula 2 Championship would have a near identical calendar to the 2019 season, with 24 race scheduled across 12 race meetings.[1] As ever F2 would serve as the main support for the FIA Formula One World Championship, with all twelve race meetings taking place at Grand Prix weekends.[1] The only change would be the addition of a race at the Circuit Park Zandvoort in early May, which replaced Circuit Paul Ricard on the calendar to create a more even spread of races mid-season.[1]

The Azerbaijan round was also pushed back to June as the F1 calendar was rejigged to accommodate the new Dutch and Vietnamese Grand Prix.[15]

A Continental Tour

The season would open with a pre-season test in Bahrain on 1-3 March, before the Sakhir circuit hosted the first two races of the season on 21 and 22 March.[1] The Series' maiden trip to the Netherlands and Zandvoort would follow on 2-3 May, followed a week later by the annual trip to Spain and the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.[1] The Circuit de Monaco would then host the Championship on 22-23 May, with another fortnight break before the field assembled at the Baku City Circuit in Azerbaijan for the fifth round of the season.[1]

A one month break was to follow, ended by the 2020 Austrian Grand Prix at the Red Bull Ring, before the field arrived in Silverstone to start the second half of the season.[1] A trip to the Hungaroring on 1-2 August would then precede the summer break, before the Series reconvened at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps at the end of August.[1] One week later F2 would support the 2020 Italian Grand Prix at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza, then venture to the Sochi Autodrom on 5-6 September to support the Russian Grand Prix.[1] The season finale would then be staged at the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi on 28-29 November, alongside sister series' F1 and the FIA Formula 3 Championship.[1]

Coronavirus Complications

The worsening COVID-19 outbreak, which was declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organisation on 12 March 2020, would result in a two month suspension of the FIA Formula 2 Championship a week before the scheduled season opener in Bahrain.[2] The Bahrain was hence postponed to an as yet undeclared date, with the season set to start with the trip to Zandvoort in May.[2] All of the 2020 events were subsequently cancelled in May 2020, after a series of postponements and cancellations from each individual organiser.[2]

Tuned Timetable

A revised calendar, approved by the FIA, was revealed on 2 June 2020, with eight rounds all held in Europe.[6] The season was to start on 3 - 5 July at the Red Bull Ring in Austria, with a second pair of races to be held on the circuit a week later.[6] The field would then head to the Hungaroring for its third pair of races on 17 - 19 July, before a two week break to the next set of races.[6]

Silverstone would host two sets of F2 races, with the first weekend being staged on 31 July - 2 August, before the fifth round of the season on 7 - 9 August.[6] The Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya would then host the series on 14 - 16 August, before the field returned to the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps on 28 - 30 August.[6] The season was then to be concluded at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza on 4 - 6 September, although both F1 and F2 hoped to add further rounds to the calendar as the Covid-19 Pandemic calmed.[6]

On 10 July it was announced that Mugello in Italy would host the ninth round of the F2 season on 11 - 13 September.[16] A tenth round was added to the schedule on 29 July, with the Sochi Autodrom returning to the calendar on 25 - 27 September.[17] The calendar was then completed on 25 August, with a double header, as well as post-season test, scheduled at the Bahrain International Circuit on 28 - 29 November and 5 - 6 December set to conclude the season.[18]

Season Report

Regulations

The F2 rulebook remained fairly stable heading into the 2020 season, with the Dallara-Mecachrome F2 2018 remaining as the Championship's base car for a third season.[43] There would, however, be a slight change to the homologation of the F2 2018, with Pirelli requesting that the Series swap to using 18" wheels in preparation for F1's planned switch to the rim size in 2021.[44]

Technical

The F2 Championship of 2020 would see all twenty-two drivers use identical Dallara F2 2018 chassis, all powered by identical Mecachrome V634 3.4l V6t engines.

Wheels and Tyres

The only change to the technical rulebook for the 2020 season would be an increase in the rim size of the wheels on the Dallara F2 2018, as F2 moved away from the traditional 13" wheels used since the 2005 GP2 Series.[44] For 2020 F2 would use 18" rims, which would serve as a test for Pirelli and their tyres ahead of Formula One's move to the same rim size in 2022.[44] As a result Pirelli would update their tyre compounds and structures for the new wheels, while still providing four different compounds across the 2020 season.[44]

Outlined below is the full range of compounds used by Pirelli, as they were marked for the 2020 FIA Formula 2 Championship:

Pirelli Tyres 2020
Pirelli 2019 Hard.png Pirelli 2019 Medium.png Pirelli 2019 Soft.png Pirelli 2019 Ultra Soft.png Pirelli 2019 Wet.png
Hard Medium Soft SuperSoft Full Wet

The wet tyre compound and tread pattern was identical to those used in 2019.[45]

Pirelli would supply each driver with five sets of dry tyres and three sets of wets for each race meeting.[46] Of the dry tyres, each driver would be issued with three sets of a harder compound and two sets of a softer compound, predetermined ahead of the race meeting by Pirelli and F2 itself.[46] Both compounds of tyres would then have to be used during the Feature Race, unless the race was declared wet by the race director.[46]

Sporting

There would be no major change to the sporting rulebook for the 2020 FIA Formula 2 Championship, with championship point scoring and FIA Super Licence point scoring both remaining unchanged:

Championship Points

Outlined below is a full breakdown of the point scoring system for the 2020 FIA Formula 2 Championship:

2020 FIA Formula 2 Championship Points Table
Feature Race
1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th 8th 9th 10th
25 18 15 12 10 8 6 4 2 1
Pole Position Fastest Lap*
4 2
Sprint Race
1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th 8th Fastest Lap*
15 12 10 8 6 4 2 1 2
  • * The fastest lap points were only awarded to the driver who set the fastest lap in the top ten of each race.

Anthoine Hubert Award

The Anthoine Hubert Award would also be available during the 2020 Formula 2 Championship, with those drivers completing their first full F2 campaign eligible for the title.[47] Otherwise, there were no special rules for the AH Award, with the highest placed rookie in the final Championship standings set to receive the Award at the end of the season.[47]

FIA Super Licence Points

Outlined below is a full breakdown of the how FIA Super Licence points were distributed for the 2020 FIA Formula 2 Championship, based on final Championship position:

2020 FIA Formula 2 Championship Super Licence Points
1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th 8th 9th 10th
40 40 40 30 20 10 8 6 4 3

A minimum of 40 Super Licence points, scored in the previous three seasons, are required for a driver to apply for an FIA Super Licence in order to compete in Formula One.[48] A driver must also be over the age of 18, hold an International Grade A competition licence (required to compete in F2) and valid road car licence, complete an FIA theory test on F1 sporting regulations, and have completed two full (80% or more) seasons of an FIA accredited Championship.[48]
