The current-generation FIA Formula 2 Championship car has been designed to give aspiring drivers the experience and skills they will need to support their graduation to Formula One.
Our Sauber Junior Team cars shares many of the features that are common to today’s F1 machinery: a turbocharged engine, the Drag Reduction System (DRS), up-to-date electronics and the Halo system that provides increased cockpit protection.
The F2 car is bigger, heavier and creates more downforce than its GP2 predecessor. It is therefore a car that gives aspiring drivers a taste of how an F1 car handles and performs.
The specification and characteristics of the F2 car also encourage close racing, something that was illustrated during the car’s debut season in 2018.
The DRS flap, that can be activated to increase the car’s straight-line speed, encourages overtaking and allows drivers to take advantage of a range of exciting passing opportunities.
The car’s turbocharged engine also puts greater emphasis on the need for drivers to manage their tyres and, therefore, the different phases of each race.
