GP2 cars are redesigned each year to ensure the series remains challenging for both teams and drivers, and to ensure that the races remain exciting for the spectators.

Bruno Michel, the series orgraniser, has said, “I am proud and happy to see the latest revision of the GP2 series car make its first public appearance here in Monaco at the Motor Sport Business Forum. We have been very happy with the way it has run in testing and I am sure that these latest updates will ensure an exciting new challenge faces our teams and drivers at the start of the 2007 season.

“The GP2 series continues to go from strength to strength. In just two years the GP2 series has become the best place for the finest up-and-coming young driver talents to catch the attention of the Formula 1 world. Indeed, in 2007 we will see four of our graduates line-up on the Formula 1 grid, amongst them our first two champions Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton, as Heikki Kovalainen makes his Formula 1 race debut for the World Champion Renault F1 Team. As the first three-year cycle of the GP2 series enters its final season, we must pay tribute to our partners Renault and Bridgestone for the faith and commitment they have shown to the series and its ideals. Together, we have created a strong and viable feeder category for Formula 1.”
